After her move to Texas, Abigail Monroe quickly suspects that the only bright spot in her new life is the town’s doctor, Elliot Jensen. But can he overcome the guilt and self-doubt he holds from his past mistakes?
When Rachel and Nathan Reed make plans to join Daniel Monroe in Portersville, Daniel’s sister, Abigail, decides to accompany them because she is near her twenty-fifth birthday without a suitor and she fears she will become a spinster if she stays in Briar Ridge. When she arrives and the townspeople learn she has been to college, they ask her to teach at the new school they just built.
Abigail is delighted with her new position but has problems with a number of the children and turns to her friend Rachel for help. The new doctor in town, Elliot Jensen, treats Abigail when she falls down the steps at church and injures her arm. He is smitten with the new teacher and would like for her to fall for him, but the only time he sees her is when she has an “accident” and must be treated. What he doesn’t realize is that the “accidents” are Abigail’s way of being near the doctor and attracting his attention. Will Christmas bring them both the gift they seek?
Set in the late 1800’s, Seasons of the Heart weaves together the stories of four women whose great faith make a difference in the lives of the men they love. The series moves from Connecticut to Texas as it follows the lives of these women and their families as they find true love and bond in friendship only God could orchestrate.
