Twenty years ago, tragedy struck not only the Everest family but the Kelly family as well, when Victoria’s husband and son were killed in a horrific car accident on their way back from a business trip to purchase equipment for their ranch.
David Kelly hit them after losing control on a treacherous icy highway, killing Victoria’s husband and son instantly. David, who survived the accident, stayed in intensive care for many months and to this day, he has had limited movement in his left leg and arm due to the accident.
Victoria, Rosemary, and Hope Everest are all loving, independent, headstrong, intelligent women, but it’s Victoria Everest or Grams, as she enjoys being called, who keeps her family together through her love for her family and her extraordinary faith in
David Kelly has never forgotten the accident or what he did. He’s still ashamed and asks God each day that he blesses the Everest women. He has never told his son Peter that he killed two people on that horrible night.
It’s twenty years later and Hope Everest has found the man of her dreams in Peter Kelly. Once Victoria meets Peter, she knows that the past has come back to haunt her family, but with her faith, she will bring these two families together.

This is a story of strong, brave, resilient women. A message that is so important for women, especially in the military. Sometimes, we are called upon to be more than just an Airman, Soldier, Sailor, Marine, or Coastguardsman. At times, we are the compassionate listener or tough “motherly” voice. This book allows the reader to experience examples of strong, godly women who persevere and ultimately never lose faith.

A Mother’s Heart” featuring three strong willed women whose faith in God and each other is tested is a delightful story that any mother can relate to. Many years earlier, a tragic accident leaves Victoria, the matriarch and her daughter-in-law, Rosemary widows. Together both women successfully raise Hope and maintain the family business until a secret is discovered about Hope’s fiancé that threatens to destroy the family. The author takes you on a journey that encourages you to remain faithful and trusting in God’s plan.
