When schoolteacher Elsie Mitchell meets rugged William Benton on a train platform in Albany, it appears they have nothing in common. He isn’t the sort of fellow a proper young woman of the 1890s would ever speak to, much less become involved with. But when she arrives at her small town in the Adirondack Mountains, Elsie is offered a job as caregiver for this mysterious out-of-towner’s niece and nephew, who’ve been tragically orphaned. Heartbroken for them, she accepts.
Unknown to her, William is an undercover Pinkerton agent posing as a lumber-company foreman. He’s never wanted family—his work is too dangerous. Yet as Elsie transforms his house into a home and he spends time with the children, he feels drawn to family life—and to Elsie.
As a good Christian, Elsie is troubled by William’s secrets…though she does find him intriguing. And when a sinister figure from her past arrives, Elsie and William will have to trust in faith and newfound love to protect their unlikely family from danger.
Lori5 Stars Out Of 5Review for A Changed AgentSeptember 15, 2016LoriQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a story of change, family, and faith.
I love seeing Will slowly start to change . He wasn't a family man until Elsie and the children came along. I laughed in some places, and I loved Elsie for her determination to change Will into what he ought to be instead if who he actually is.
Elsie doesn't know that he's a Pinkerton agarnt hired to help find the railroad bonds that came up missing! !
Elsie is afraid to trust after what Virgil did to her. She doesn't want to give into Will for fear of breaking her heart again in case he up and took off again. Through God's plan she learns to start trusting and she forgave Virgil for what he done to her.
I enjoyed that there were children in the story.
They were what helped change Elsie and will see things as they are supposed to be.
Oh and I figured out won stole the bonds but I won't say!! You won't believe who it is!!
Tracey I loved this novel! It was a page Turner and I enjoyed very much!
