Summary, Etc. "Abandoned at birth, her own origins a mystery, historical museum curator Sloane Kelley has dedicated her life to preserving Wichita's past. When a donor drops off a dusty old satchel, she doesn't expect much from the common artifact...but the 19th-century diary she finds inside definitely piques her interest. Garrett Anderson is eager to clean out his grandmother's historic but tumbledown farmhouse before selling it to fund her medical care. In the face of her advancing Alzheimer's, he can't afford to be sentimental about the old family home. But his carefully-ordered plan runs up against two formidable obstacles: Sloane, who's fallen in love with both the diaries and the house, and his own heart, which is irresistibly drawn to Sloane. A century and a half earlier, Annabelle Collins's widowed father leaves her in the care of her aunt and uncle to embark on the adventure of a lifetime: settling the prairies of Sedgwick County, Kansas. The diaries she left behind paint a portrait of life, loss, and love-and a God who faithfully carries her through it all. Paging through the diaries together takes Sloane and Garrett on a journey they never could have planned for...a journey that will change them both in ways they never imagined"-- Provided by publisher.
