A snowboarder-turned-cowboy, his maid, and their forbidden relationship when they get snowed in together...
Professional snowboarder Sterling Maughan has sequestered himself in his family cabin in the exclusive mountain community above Gold Valley, Montana after a devastating fall that ended his career. Lost, with no direction and no motivation, the last thing he wants is company.
But Norah Watson has other plans for the cabin. Not only does she clean Sterling's cabin, she's a counselor at Silver Creek, a teen rehabilitation center at the base of the mountain, and she brings her girls up to the cabin every twelve weeks. She senses that Sterling's lost more than his chance at another gold medal, and she feels a pull to help him. She doesn't have much to give, as she's the full-time caretaker of her mentally ill mother and her three half-brothers, but for Sterling, she invests the time.
When Sterling finds out there's a job for an at-risk counselor at Silver Creek, he asks Norah to drive him back and forth. He learns to ride horses and use equine therapy to help his boys—and himself.
The more time they spend together, the more convinced Norah is to never tell Sterling about her troubled past, let him see her house on the wrong side of the tracks, or meet her mother. But Sterling is interested in all things Norah, and as his body heals, so does his faith. Will Norah be able to trust Sterling so they can have a chance at true love?

After the Fall
Good book about failure and pain and working through differences. It shows no matter what happens in the past something good can still happen to you and you should never give up faith.
You never know how strong you are until you are tested.
Absolutely love every Liz Isaacson book I have read and this is no exception. Sterling and Nora are strong characters that deserve equally strong mates. These two come from different backgrounds but their faith and how they look at life are what keep them moving forward in life and love. I like how Liz addresses personal struggles in each of her books. I only wish this one would have addressed the outcome for her mom and younger brothers before it ended. Another strong, clean love story.
