The Hired Man by Lynna Banning
A home for the drifter
Cordell Winterman is haunted by his mistakes - and the years spent paying for them. Broke and hungry, he takes a job as a hired man on Eleanor Malloy's farm.
Eleanor needs help. Desperately. Her kids are running wild and the place is held up by spit and rust. But as Cord helps her set her home to rights, Eleanor realises she doesn't just need this enigmatic drifter with hunger in his eyes...she wants him too!
