Though grateful for the blessing of her daughter, Carissa Lowe has accepted that widowhood is her lot in life. Bound by fear and mistrust, she feels incapable of opening her heart again.
Tyler Atherton has never forgotten Carissa. When he discovers she’s living with her sister on a nearby ranch, his life becomes intertwined with the lovely widow’s. And Carissa’s daughter, Gloria, seems determined to wrap herself around his little finger. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.
Challenged by mounting hardships, can Carissa and Tyler preserve their fledgling love in a land as unforgiving and vibrant as the people who call it home?

We enjoy listen to books while traveling. Dee Henderson book have really captured our interest.
Yes - I like it
I listen in my vehicle and on my breaks at work so listening all in one setting is not an option me. My down fall for listen at work is sometimes I don't want to stop a story, because I just can't wait to see what is going to happen
I like Christian stories, I actually look for Christian authors - wish there were more out there. Actually it doesn't always have a Christian spin on it but I don't like stories with cussing in it. We hear it so much in our society that we don't even think about it anymore. No one cares
This book is like reading a prologue for the first 50% of the book. The beginning is nothing but a primer on how to be a rancher's wife; cooking, cleaning etc. It could have been a much shorter book.
No. There are many fine books of this genre. Tracie Peterson is an excellent writer and I could recommend many of her books.
There was a little more of the "God talk" than Peterson usually has in her Christian books, so that was a little overdone.
I am a non-believer and really can not relate to strong Christian preachings. I wish that this book had been listed as a Christian romance. The story line was ok, there was very little indication that this was a Christian lit early in the book, but it gets really thick towards the late middle to end of the book. Which is disappointing because I had so much time invested in the story. Praying and scripture turned me off, but if this is your thing, then it would be enjoyable. I did try to ignore the Christian overtones in order to finish the book, but I will be getting a refund.
