Cinch up your saddles and hang onto the reins for another poignant glimpse into historic Texas from Texas author Celia Yeary.
A woman on the run lands in Trinity Hill, Texas, under an assumed name. Kathleen Parker adopts the identity of a woman she met on her travels, said woman handing over her Mail Order Bride contract to Kathleen without a qualm right before she ran off with another man.
Josiah Freemont, a widower with three children eagerly greets his bride, Gwendolyn Shoenberg. Kathleen, aka Gwendolyn, travels with Josiah and his family out to his new ranch. She hopes the remote location will further hide her from the vengeful man from her past. Meanwhile, Josiah and Kathleen get to know each other.
Trust is paramount in Josiah's book. All goes well until Kathleen/Gwendolyn's past catches up with her and endangers the entire Freemont family.
An engaging novella about two lonely hearts.
