Jess Hamilton believes he could never fill the shoes of his late father. Now responsible for a century-old family business and a boys’ home, Jess knows he is expected to uphold a great patriarchal legacy. As Jess struggles to find a footing in a world full of new obligations, he finds himself drawn into an ugly court battle where a child’s future—or perhaps even his life—is at stake.
For Jess’s wife Tamra, her own inadequacies surface when her abusive mother comes to be cared for in the Hamilton family home. Even though Tamra has forgiven her mother, the situation brings an ugly past much too close to the present—which only adds to Tamra’s rising feelings of discouragement as she searches for help with her own physical challenges.
Volume four in best-selling author Anita Stanfield’s Gables of Legacy series, An Eternal Bond journeys into the changing lives of the Hamilton family and explores how adversity can bless and unite families in eternal bonds of love. [publisher's blurb]
