Forgiven by Janet Fox (Published by Speak, June 26, 2011)
Kula Baker never expected to find herself on the streets of San Francisco, alone but for a letter of introduction. Though she has come to the city to save her father from a cruel fate, Kula soon finds herself swept up in a world of art and elegance—a world she hardly dared dream of back in Montana, where she was no more than the daughter of an outlaw. And then there is the handsome David Wong, whose smiling eyes and soft-spoken manner have an uncanny way of breaking through Kula's carefully crafted reserve. Yet when disaster strikes and the wreckage threatens all she holds dear, Kula realizes that only by unlocking her heart can she begin to carve a new future for herself.
I really enjoyed Janet Fox's first novel, Faithful. Forgiven continues the story of one of the characters from the first book so I am really looking forward to reading it. And this post reminds me that I should write a review for Faithful - I got it on my own rather than being sent the book for review, but I should still write a review, since I enjoyed it!
