First in My Heart
Ava Keller travels from her small hometown in Eastern Iowa to sunny Florida in the hopes of starting a teaching career. She finds the members of the local community to be more than welcoming—all except Pete Harrison.
Pete had been getting along just fine until Ava came along, creating another opportunity for his family to marry him off. He’s seen enough change in his life to know that nothing good can ever last. But Ava keeps showing up again and again, and in time he finds himself wanting to help her succeed.
Can Pete open up to the possibility of love? Or will the uncertainty of Ava’s future send her back to her family again? Both must rely on God to show them the way, and to remind them what is truly important.
