Jane Haymaker is the heroine of my story, For Love or Money. Jane has had a hard time since her mother died. Her father is lazy, and he drinks too much. Jane and her younger brother, Ben, have taken care of each other. Now they’re grown, but they’re still finding it hard to deal with their father.
At the opening of the story, the family’s house is burning, and it seems likely that Jane’s father accidentally started the fire. She gets him out of the way and does what she can to save thebarn, since the house is already lost. Cue the hero—Crockett Hart rides to the rescue.
Jane has always looked up to Crockett. She went to school with his little brother, Hays, but Crockett’s the one she admired. Now he’s here and jumping into action. Jane’s heart is in tumult as she watches the family home burn and works side-by-side with the man of her dreams—the one she’s sure would never look twice at her.
Come visit Jane (even though she doesn’t have a kitchen table to sit you down at) and get to know her. I think, like Crockett, you’ll decide Jane is worth cultivating.
Jane receives several gifts after the fire. One that she treasures is Crockett's mother's Bible. In it, she finds a verse that says, When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Jane finds this verse a comfort in the aftermath of the fire.
Is there a special verse that has helped you through a difficult time?
