Genre: Christian Fantasy 

Reckless. Extravagant. Wasteful. These were all words that could describe Esther. Thirteen years of careless living had left Esther and her young son destitute. When her husband disappears at night, leaving Esther with the full burden of their debt, Esther has no choice but to claim her husband is dead and enslave herself and her child to stay alive. So severely had she broken the relationships in her life, she never expected a man from her childhood to speak on her behalf and carry the weight of her debt. Yet Esther soon realizes that escaping the demons of her past would not be so easy. 

Levi had little interest in seeing Esther again. When a promise to her father leaves him honor-bound to take her as his wife, he struggles with the bitterness he holds toward her for allowing her addictions and selfishness to derail her life. Yet, he could not hide the deep desire within him to be a husband and a father, even to a woman he did not love and a child that was not his by blood. 

Discover the story of a reckless woman in A Path to Forgiveness.

It was not unlawful in The Gourd to marry again if a spouse went missing. Though, if we
married and Victor was found, Levi would have little rights as my second husband. Even with
abandonment, first husbands or wives still held rights to their spouse and children if they never
formally signed a writ of separation. Victor could claim me and Kaleb and take us away from
Levi. In doing so, the debt would also reverse. That fact alone made me realize that Victor
would never be found.
Yet, if unwillingly he was found, what did it matter? Levi would rejoice if the burden of
caring for me and Kaleb was taken out of his hands. He didn’t want us as it was. But even if it
proved to be temporary, Levi was offering my son and me our only chance of reprieve. And for
Kaleb’s sake, I would do whatever Levi required of me.
