A Gripping Story of Love, Loss, and Second Chances
When her husband disappears into a mountain snowstorm one morning, Kathryn Jennings is flung into the world of ranching, banking, and business. Penniless and pregnant, Kathryn is determined to keep her land as a legacy for her child. The man who offers her a job seems to have an awful lot of secrets, but she is desperate. Most disconcerting of all is the uncanny familiarity she feels toward the badly scarred ranch hand who works in the dark shadows of the horse stables.
Another T. Alexander masterpiece!
Tamera Alexander does it again—this book was another one of hers that I just could not put down until I finished it!
The characters, as always, are almost tangible and I found myself drawn in to their specific struggles and nearly feeling their hurts. (and joy!)
The plot tension was excruciatingly drawn out and she takes you on such an extensive journey through the pains and valleys of despair before igniting a brilliant light of hope that draws you in and keeps you hungry for more.
The romantic elements were subtle compared to some of her books, but the moments were sweet—although I had hoped for a few more “fireworks” after so much hurt leading up to the HEA moment.
There aren’t nearly enough romance stories involving already married couples, so I was delighted to come across this one, as it appealed more deeply to my current season of life as a not-so-newlywed woman.
Beautifully written, as I’ve come to expect from my new favorite author!
AMAZING and Unique Characters
I doubt that I've EVER read a romance book with such a unique main male character! Tamera is a very gifted author, who not only has continual twists and turns within her story but also describes things, whether about nature, the way of life back in those days or what her characters are feeling, making the reader feel as though they were there, walking in their shoes. I LOVED this book, which is the first of hers that I've read, and can't wait to delve into the book that follows it! I also read it to my husband out loud, who enjoyed it as well as I did. Great writing, Tamera!!!
What a heartwarming story that brims with tenderness, forgiveness, love, redemption, and a trust in the Lord that surpasses all understanding.
