Steam: Steam Level 3
I will find you.
Before they parted, Stephen and Katherine had joined hands in the ruins of the old abbey church and pledged their love to each other. It was the summer of nineteen sixty-seven, long before the days of the internet with its email, online databases, and social media, and they were going in different directions, to different schools, to different countries. Nevertheless, Stephen promised to find her.
Through ten years of separation, Katherine clung to Stephen’s words, hoping and praying he would keep his promise. When he finally does, they fall in love once more and plan to marry. But Stephen is not Katherine’s only suitor. Bill Wilson – arrogant, selfish, sexist − has known Katherine since they were in high school. He has long assumed he would wed her, telling everyone she would be his, telling everyone except Katherine. When Stephen appears, he decides he must formally stake his claim.
A loveless marriage to a man she despises versus marriage to the love of her life? The choice seems obvious. But when Katherine rebuffs Bill’s proposal, his courtship turns violent.
What will Katherine risk to follow her heart and marry the man she truly loves?
