Sam was on the run. Little money and a starving belly. When the clothesline revealed a large family with many children and the mailbox sported the family name, Sam figured it would be a cinch to get some food at the mercantile by charging it to the Klaassen family. When the mercantile owner turned out to be the uncle of all those kids, Sam hightailed it out with the food, but not fast enough to avoid being tackled by Adam one of the Klaassen brothers.
With the sheriff away, Adam volunteered to take Sam home with him until he returns. When the family questioned her, she knew she couldn’t reveal her real name or her father would find her. The family’s kindness is something Samantha has experienced very little of in her seventeen years. She is torn with living a lie and telling them the truth in fear of having to go back to her father. A Seeking Heart by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a heartwarming family story of kindness and love.
