SOMEWHERE TO CALL HOME
An Impossible Choice
Some might call it a proposal. Violet Burton knows it's blackmail, and she refuses to give in. She won't marry the unscrupulous banker who holds the mortgage on her Virginia home. INstead, she'll find employment in New York City, earning enough to pay her debts before returning home. Virginia's where she belongs . . . even if reconnecting with childhood friend Michael Heaton makes her long to stay permanently at his mother's boardinghouse. The freckle-faced girl Michael knew is now a lovely woman. Helping Violer find her way is a simple act of friendship–at least at first. But soon he'll do anything to keep her safe, and hope she'll see that the home she seeks is one they can share together.
