Unbridled Hope by Loree Lough. Christian Romance Fiction. Paperback.
Callie Roberts can't shake her sense of guilt for the steamboat boiler explosion that killed most of her family and permanently deafened her younger brother. Micah Neville can't escape feeling obligated to protect the reputation of his cousin Dan. When he "inherits" a baby boy from a woman who claims Dan is the father, Callie steps in to help raise the baby and keep up the facade. Will the condemnation of friends and family draw them closer or pull them apart?
