From the Vault

This week's title from the vault is...
Uncertain Alliance by Mary Davis
HP 788

Alice can't trust another man.

Alica Dempsey's husband squandered the family's money. When he died he left her destitute and solely responsible for her aging grandfather, younger brother, and toddler son. Debt forces the family to move to Seattle tenement. When Alice is fired from her job, she becomes desperate. Will she and her family end up on the streets?

Ian MacGregor has loved Alice from afar for months, but he can't get past the wall of formality she has built around herself. When he learns of her job loss, he offers her employment in his pharmacy. She turns him down, suspicious of his motives. But when her younger brother gets into serious trouble and Ian is the only one who can help, Alice warily allows him into their lives.

Will Alice find love where she least expects it? Or will this uncertain alliance prove her fears of betrayal true?

Question of the Day
How have you spent your summer so far?
