Leaving Noah is a heartwarming tale of love, loss, second chances, and the power of the written word.
When a rodeo accident leaves Rock Creek Ranch shorthanded, Connie MacKay travels from South Dakota to Montana to visit her daughter and help with the neighboring ranch's cattle roundup. Raised on a ranch and comfortable in the saddle, she is determined to help.
After decades of working ranches throughout the northwest, Noah Parker heads home to Rock Creek to stay—maybe. That all depends on the reception he gets from family. When he arrives, the last person he expects to see there is Connie.
Several months earlier at Sarah MacKay's wedding, Noah and Connie shared a clandestine night together. Neither have seen nor spoken to the other since.
It's been a little over a year since Connie's husband's death, and no matter how attracted she is to the rough stock cowboy, she can't let herself get swept away by Noah's charm and old-fashioned cowboy ethics. Figuring out the next chapter of her life is her priority—and one she must do alone.
Noah has baggage of his own he's not sure he can get past, let alone heap on top of hers. He has known love, and lost love, and doesn't want to live out the rest of his days alone. He loves her, but following Connie to South Dakota is not the answer, so he tries another tack—old fashioned love letters designed to share his story, and perhaps woo her heart.
