A Man for Glory
Carolyn Davidson

A Man for Glory
Carolyn Davidson

TRUE LOVE… UNDER FALSE PRETENCES? With her husband hanged for his secret criminal past, bewildered widow Glory Clark is left all alone to run the farm and care for her stepchildren. Then handsome stranger Cade McAllister shows up on her doorstep, bringing hope and tender feelings Glory has never experienced before in her young life.As a detective in search of the missing fortune Glory’s husband stole, Cade has a hidden agenda. An arranged marriage is merely a stepping stone to getting what he wants… But when it soon becomes ‘Glory’, plain and simple, will their new-found bond withstand his deception?

“I’m awful glad you haven’t found a man to your liking yet.”

Glory smiled at Cade, her gaze on him assessing. He was to be admired; not only did he seem to be honest and forthright, but he claimed to have a fund of money available should she want to sell any portion of her farm to him.

If she was wrong, if this Cade McAllister was not all he seemed to be, she would have made a mistake greater than any she’d ever made. But if she were right, and if the sheriff was correct in his thinking, then Cade might be the salvation she sought. A man who would be willing to take on the farm and make a success of Buddy’s inheritance. A man to look out for her and the children. A friend for herself.

And perhaps even a husband.

AUTHOR NOTE

I loved this story from the first page on. It dwells on the building of a relationship—a natural outcome of the sort of marriage Glory enters into. The children involved are a large part of this story, for they are also a large part of Glory’s life. I love children, and enjoy including them in my work. The bond formed between Buddy and his stepfather is a path to the relationship that develops, binding the whole family together. Just another Carolyn Davidson story—one of love within the boundaries of a family and the joy to be found in the midst of a home.

I sincerely hope you will relate in some way to the characters who live on these pages, for I wrote this novel with my readers in mind. You have told me what you like to read and have made your position clear. So I write for you, all of you—those who make contact with me by mail or the internet, all of you who buy my books so faithfully and hopefully will continue to do so. The hours spent in front of my computer, my fingers flying over the keys, are dedicated to each of you.

I sometimes wish I could have lived in the days of old, that I could have been a woman such as Glory, living with wood stoves to cook on and scrub boards leaning inside a washtub upon which to clean my family’s laundry. Hmm … perhaps I’ll stick to writing of such women, enjoy my modern conveniences, and forget about churning butter.

So, until my next book and the next time I speak to each of you, I’ll be thinking of new stories to write and new characters to fill the pages.

Happy reading!

A MAN FOR GLORY

is dedicated to those women who found happiness

in marriages of convenience—a common occurrence

in the olden days. My own grandmother, at the age

of fifteen, came from Austria to marry a man in

Dearborn, Michigan, without ever seeing him.

It was a marriage that produced seven children,

one of whom was my father. I have a love for

such relationships, and write about them often.

And, as always, this work in its entirety
