"A Hope Remembered"

Stacy Henrie has always had an avid appetite for history, fiction and chocolate. She earned her B.A. in public relations from Brigham Young University and worked in communications before turning her attentions to raising a family and writing inspirational historical romances.

Henrie applied the Page 69 Test to her latest novel, A Hope Remembered, and reported the following:
From page 69:
Colin moved into the hallway, intent on waiting out front, but he stopped when he caught sight of Nora’s unfettered hair. Free from its pins, it fell in red waves to the middle of her back. He stared, mesmerized, at the beauty of it. Would those tresses feel as soft and silky as they looked, slipping through his fingers?

As Nora began to rearrange her hair into a knot, Colin realized she could turn at any moment and discover him gawking. He beat a hasty and rather silent retreat to the front door.
Colin Ashby, in A Hope Remembered, is caught between doing what will honor his dead brother’s wishes and his father’s demands, and what his heart wants to do. He’s supposed to be charming Nora Lewis, the pretty American who’s inherited the nearby sheep farm, to get her land. But from their first meeting, he realizes this task might prove to be his downfall.

On page 69, he’s offered to show Nora around the village in England’s Lake District, in hopes of convincing her that she doesn’t want to stay there. But then, in a chance moment of seeing her with her hair down, he’s reminded again that what his father wants and what Colin wants are fast becoming two different things.
