Publisher's Summary

Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at a young age and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes - one bright blue, the other dark brown - Eva has fought to find her way in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet the support of even one person can help overcome the world's judgments, and Eva has two - Seth and Zach, two former orphans she now counts as brothers. 

Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler arrives in 1880s Pecan Gap, Texas, to confront Zach Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father's death. Only instead of finding a solitary ruthless gambler, he discovers a man not much older than himself with an unusual family.

When Zach's sister, Evangeline, insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time their paths cross, Logan finds his quest completely derailed. Who is truly responsible for his lost legacy, and will restoring the past satisfy if it means forfeiting a future with Evangeline?

Always a treat!

Karen‘s books never disappoint me. This one was particularly uplifting and yet adventuresome and romantic. I love how the characters grow and change and inspire each other. No one is perfect, and all have an opportunity to see that and come to grips with that fact with hope and forgiveness. I particularly liked Evangeline and her refreshing honesty and transparency. She had such a thirst for life and such a thankful heart!

Cute Idea .. Not The Best Narration

As a huge fan of Karen Witemeyer work this one was my least favorite.. the idea is really cute as expected but the story .. hmmmm
so the story is about Evangeline who has a set of different colored eyes and that made her an outcast in the society except for her "brothers" Seth and Zac .. then she meets Logan who has a major beef with Zac but against all odds they fall in love .. what will happen then ?
I wasn't interested in Evangeline's story as I felt no chemistry between the two .. but Seth story was really adorable <3 .. SOO excited for the second book to know Zac's story yaaaayyy I just love this guy and he has a lot to deal with :D .. I guess I'll have to wait and see :)

As for the narration .. she was ok .. but Logan and Seth sounded like little girls that I had a hard time imagining them masculine because they sounded so tiny from the narration .. I wouldn't recommend this book if you are new to Karen Witemeyer books .. start with " To Win Her Heart " it was the best :)

Pretty good...

Good overall story. I felt like it started stronger than it ended. Every touch and glance is described to the extreme, but overall good.

I loved everything about this book.

There was a little bit of suspense, joy, heartbreak, romance and even attempted murder. The main female character has a willful spirit. Overall the main and most important theme throughout was about family and the need for a relationship with Jesus. I would highly recommend if you value those qualities or even if you don’t it could have a positive impact on your life if you truly open your heart to the message.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this story. It wasn't one of those stories you just can't stop listening to, but it was pleasant. The narration is ok, but the male voices either sound female or childlike and the Texas accents come and go.

Great story and fabulous narration!

Just get this one. Don’t hesitate. It is a wonderful experience to hear. I can’t imagine anyone not liking it. I usually give four stars on everything but this was over and above. Really enjoyable

Cute Story

A cute, fun listen! The beginning was a little sad, and made me cry but all in all this was a great story. Evangeline is such a sweet and special person that you spend the whole book rooting for her. I will definitely listen to this again.
