Book blurb for Song of the Meadowlark by Sherri Wilson Johnson: 
When trusting others causes nothing but pain and rejection, and loving ends only in loss, what will it take to restore hope again?

Shamed by the uncovered truth about her missing husband’s secret life, Cora Buchanan sets out on a road trip for home to mend her broken relationship with her parents. While traveling through Georgia—through a town experiencing missing and murdered women—her car breaks down leaving her stranded. Cora stays at the struggling Southern Hope Ranch until she can get back on the road. While there, a bond develops between Cora and little Susie O’Reilly, who unexpectedly fills a void in Cora’s heart. Cora is abducted and then soon after learns the news of her absent husband’s murder. She finally journeys home but wants to return to Georgia to help save the ranch and to aid the family when the crimes hit too close to home. Will Rex O’Reilly, the bitter widower angry with God—and father to Susie—stand in her way?
