Hunter's Prize, by Marcia Gruver
Since Addie is old enough to leave her family, she is ecstatic when she is passed a letter from a friend requesting a teacher to move to Texas to care for a special child. Today, such a child has a diagnosis of Autistic. Addie has never seen a child with such problems, and it takes all her skills to deal with Ceddy Whitfield.
Ceddy Whitfield’s parents learned to handle his issues, but when they are killed in an accident, he moves to Texas to live with an elderly aunt. Before leaving South Africa, he picks up a diamond. A couple of evil men realize that Ceddy is holding a valuable diamond in the rough, so they track him to Texas to steal it from him.
Pearson Foster’s family drowned in the hurricane in Galveston in 1900, since then he has drifted through life as a fortune hunter. He moves to Lake Caddo to find the wreck of the Mittie Stephens. Pearson, Addie, and Ceddy lives cross in East Texas, along with villains, townfolk, and Ceddy’s great aunt. Fun, engaging read for those who enjoy historical Christian romances.
