Can a handsome veterinarian, a lonely boy and an injured kitten break down the walls of Tracy’s guarded heart?

Her alcoholic mother and unfaithful boyfriend taught Tracy Harris that life was easier if you kept your heart safe and secure. So her plans for her life are simple. A house on the lake, a milk cow, a dog and a clothes-line. She is close to achieving that simple dream. Then a young boy named Kent wanders into he vet clinic holding an injured kitten. Upon discovering that his broken home life is too similar to hers she is determined to help him.

When veterinarian David Braun lost his fiancee to cancer he thought he could never love again. Until he met Tracy. But she keeps him at arm’s length with her prickly demeanour. However David discovers another side to her when he sees her with Kent and his kitten. He too wants to help Kent and Tracy reluctantly agrees to his intervention.

As they work together they grow closer and Tracy starts to think she might have a chance at love and a new life with David and with Kent. But, as if on cue, her mother comes stumbling back into her life and Tracy’s involvement with Kent puts the dream of her own place in jeopardy.

Can Tracy and David put aside their own needs and make the right choice for Kent and themselves?

A Silence in the Heart is a sweet romance about loss and forgiveness and hard choices.

A Silence in the Heart was published previously by Harlequin Love Inspired but has been updated and rewritten to fit into the Holmes Crossing setting.

About the Author

CAROLYNE AARSEN is a blessed to have sincere Christian parents and to be married to a committed Christian husband. But her first love was always fiction.

Because of her isolation from any kind of writing group, Carolyne learned to write by trial and error and by taking correspondence courses while she and her husband were raising their four natural children and the numerous foster children that came through their home. She documented the fun and foibles of their life in a weekly humor column carried in a number of Alberta newspapers.

In April 1997 she was thrilled to hear that her hard work had paid off with a contract with Steeple Hill Love Inspired books. EVER FAITHFUL, her second book for the Love Inspired line, won the Toronto Romance Writers Golden Opportunity Contest for unpublished writers. Her ninth book, TWIN BLESSINGS, received four-and-a-half stars from Romantic Times Magazine. Since then she has published a number of books. Her stories reflect a love of God, family, rural Canadian life and a profound appreciation of God's creation and how He constantly calls His children to Himself. She hopes and prays that in her writing she can show how people's weaknesses are covered by Christ's strength. Her dream is to make Christ's sacrifice accessible to people of all ages and places through the lives of her characters.

Though she grew up in a city, she considers herself a full-fledged country person. When she's not writing, she's helping her husband with his logging business, their herd of cows, their horses and their chickens that managed to escape the clutches of the coyotes and owls. They are also involved with the youth in their church. You can find her website at www.carolyneaarsen.com
