Will moving to a small Montana town keep her daughter safe?
Samantha Deveaux and her eight-year-old daughter, Audie, move to Choteau so she can take her first teaching job. The small town on the Rocky Mountain Front is only a temporary stop, and she intends to stay a stranger, so nothing can lead her ex, a man just released from prison in Tennessee, to track her down.
The town embraces her and Audie, her daughter's teachers and classmates providing care and compassion for the girl with Asperger's. The church community is warm and welcoming, the hub of many rural small towns. Samantha settles in and makes friends, including rancher Jarod Beck.
But Jarod is focused on running the family ranch and building a rodeo training business, and Samantha discovers her ex isn't going to give up the search for his daughter. A disagreement about a horse puts a further wedge between Samantha and Jarod.
Her dream of a miracle to guide her to a new life is dashed. Now she has to face reality or put her daughter in danger. Or is there another possibility?
A warm and touching story about learning to trust again. If you enjoy contemporary women's fiction with strong characters and a dramatic setting, then you'll love Finding Home.
Fate brought Samantha to Choteau, Montana and Jarod Beck. Will that same fate tear her away?

A beautiful journey of growth and love
A beautiful journey of growth and love. Samantha does everything for her daughter, Audie. She is working very hard to build a life for them even though her pregnancy was unexpected. She does carry a lot of fear that she copes with by being fiercely independent to ensure she doesn't get attached. When she moves to Choteau to take a teaching position, she never expects to find a community that opens it arms and embraces her. This is very foreign to her. Jarod is stalwart, working the family ranch while dreaming of building a business to train rodeo horses. His chance encounter with Audie and Samantha suddenly has him offering to teach Audie to ride. For Jarod, he is surprised by the connection to the little girl and his attraction to Samantha. Jarod isn't looking for a relationship but finds himself wanting to spend more time with Samantha. Both of these people have past hurts that they need to deal with before they can embrace a new future. I loved the connections that are made throughout this story not just with Samantha and Jarod but how wonderful the community is represented.
