Evelyn Lewis' secret dream of marrying her brother’s best friend is shattered when he leaves their home town to seek his fortune elsewhere. For six long years, she’s waited and wondered if he would return. After the shocking murder of her parents, her brother is the only family she has left. Refusing to accept a betrothal to a man she doesn’t love, she decides to take control of her destiny and confront her parents’ killer.
Growing up, Alexander Walker has known only violence at the hands of his cruel father. After the death of his mother, he embarks on a journey into the uncharted wilderness to test his resolve as a fur trapper and mountain man. When an impulsive decision leads him back to his childhood home, he finds more than he bargained for.
Amid the rugged Teton wilderness, fate suddenly throws Alex and Evelyn together. The quiet protective boy she remembers is now as strange to her as the world she’s been forced into. Wary of the hardened man he has become, Evelyn must put her trust in him in order to survive. Alex’s memories of Evelyn are of a pesky little girl, but he can’t deny his growing feelings for the beautiful and spirited woman she is now. His biggest obstacle in winning her heart may not be her uncertainty of him, but a fear that has haunted him all his life. In a primitive and brutal world, can Alex and Evelyn forge a love as solid as the mountains, or will the past come back to haunt them both?

Easy to read, fun and entertaining.
Another good story by Peggy L. Henderson. Sad that Larant and Whispering were killed. Looking forward to the next story in the series.
“Teton Sunrise” by Henderson
“Teton Sunrise” is one of those
historical novels that this reader
hates to see come to its end.
However, there are many more
adventures waiting to be read, by
Ms Henderson. She creates
believable characters along with
thrilling ‘edge of your seat’ adventures. This plot is so well
constructed that the book is just
so difficult to put down. So, if
you long for stories that exhibit
true love and devotion, along with
bravery and betrayal, then you’ll
fall victim to these memorable
characters. Thanks, Ms Henderson for creating characters
such as: Evie & Alex, Laurent &
Whispering Waters, along with their children too. Love the way
true stories are incorporated into
this romantic novel as well!!
