He’s sworn to heal others, but at what cost to himself?

Step into the bustling streets of post-Civil War Philadelphia, where cultural injustice and class disparity run rampant. Amidst this chaos, Thomas, an aspiring doctor from the wilds of Missouri, struggles to find his place in a society to which he is unaccustomed. But when he meets debutante Emmaline Whitaker, she teaches him more than the social graces – she holds the key to his future. Only it is the independent, fun-loving Theodora Morse who holds his attention.

As Thomas navigates the complexities of high society, he must also confront his inner turmoil. When devastating news comes from home, Thomas is forced to use his waning faith to determine the desire of his heart. Will Thomas stand by his convictions and fight against the malaise of those around him, or will he choose the safety and comfort of his new life?

In this powerful Christian historical fiction, award-winning author Heidi Gray McGill weaves a poignant tale of love, sacrifice, and redemption in the City of Brotherly Love.

For Misty M. Beller, Lacy Williams, and Linda Ford fans, this standalone novel in the Discerning God’s Best series will capture your heart and leave you breathless. You’ll love this book if you enjoy gripping historical drama and compelling characters. Binge-read the entire series on Kindle Unlimited.

“Snowball fight!” Merriweather yelled like an Indian raider.

Thwop. Thwack.

Two well-aimed spots on each side of Crocket’s backside had him yelping.

“I’ve been hit. It’s an ambush. Initiate alert status. I repeat, ini—”

Crocket’s face registered surprise as another snowball hit his raised arm, making Teddy wish she’d visited the lavatory before heading outside.

Thomas hunkered down behind the base of the men’s snowman, its head threatening to topple from its body. “Prepare to meet your maker, ladies.” He came out from behind the creature, his arm already in motion. “Take no prisoners, gentlemen. This is war!”

Merriweather squealed and ducked behind the tree closest to the house. Teddy took over Merriweather’s job behind their snowman, making and handing snowballs to the two markswomen. Snow flew in all directions, and she laughed so hard she plopped down and held her stomach.

Ding-a-ling. Ding-a-ling.

Teddy looked to the street to see if the fire wagon was coming over the snow-filled street. The noise increased, and the voice of a very stern Mrs. Jones pulled her attention to the porch.

“You’ll have all the neighbors thinking there’s a brawl going on in my front yard with all that racket. Head in. Your cocoa is ready.”

One last snowball careened through the air. Thomas caught it. “You ladies could have shortened the war by a few years.”

Birdie threw her empty arms in the air. “That’s what I keep saying.”
