Saint or Sinner?
Miss Emeline Wright risked everything to escape the monster who stole her innocence, her dignity, her pride. Now no one in her little home town nestled in the West Virginia hills must ever know what she was forced to do while a captive in the city. Her only chance is to make a go of her uncle’s failing farm, but how can a woman alone, in rough country, survive?
With unfailing courage and an open heart, Em wins over the townspeople who’ve judged her so harshly, taking in a motley crew of misfits who show up, one by one, to lend a hand. But it’s the quiet strength and unfailing love of a single man that will show her how to trust again as they  build a  home to last forever…

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 06, 2015 – Shoup's Green Valley series launch blends bitter and sweet in a sobering look at two honorable people who have been victimized. In 1881 Virginia, Emeline Wright is in college and in love, but her wealthy beau turns out to be a predator who kidnaps her. After a daring escape, Emeline makes her way back to her family's ranch; in her absence, the small town has transitioned into a thriving, populous mining mecca. Soon her uncle dies, leaving Emeline alone, impoverished, and vulnerable. When a man attacks Emeline, town newcomer Tommy Medlin intervenes. Emeline seizes the opportunity to protect herself and save her farm by offering Tommy a business partnership. Their hard work provides solvency, while love helps them heal from a collective history of beatings, bullying, and sexual assaults (which are described but never lingered over in a lurid or gratuitous way). Shoup moves assuredly through trauma, family discord, and romantic misunderstandings to capture lovely bits of Americana and a bygone way of life.
