When her father's debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson's family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah's family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she's fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.
This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman's past.
With a fresh, charming installment in the Love Blossoms in Oregon series, Ferrell (Wishing on Buttercups) returns readers to 1860s Oregon, tackling matters of faith, family, and forgiveness. Leah Carlson is a young woman used to doing a man's work on her father's ranch. It's just been the two of them since the loss of Leah's mother and the desertion of her younger brother. Taking care of her alcoholic father has left little time for anything else, until fate intervenes in the form of young banker Steven Harding. Steven has spent his life taking care of his mother, only to feel adrift when his long-missing sister is reunited with them and his family is once again complete. While vacillating wildly between overly dramatic and deceptively simplistic, this tender tale reinforces recognition of the necessity of trust and the unbreakable bond of family.

Dreaming on Daisies
Miralee has a wonderful way of writing a spell binding story intertwined with several other character stories. Her books are very difficult to put down.
