Publisher's Summary

Cord McGraw never intended to take up the life of an outlaw, but desperation changed the course of his life. A one-time deal; that's all it was meant to be. He only needed enough to see him through until he got the pay owed him. Someone was counting on him, and he couldn't let her down.

Josie Pearson's heart went out to Sissy Edwards, the orphan girl she'd found hungry on the streets. When Josie decided to adopt her, she was turned down because she was unmarried, and Sissy was sent to an orphanage.

When they both feel like giving up, will a controversial new program become an unconventional solution?

This is the first novelette of the new Texas Wildflowers series by best-selling authors Leah Atwood and Susette Williams.

Wonderful listen

Another wonderful short by Leah Atwood and Susette Williams. I really enjoy this while I walk..it's just long enough, the characters are well developed and the story meaningful and a good listen. In this one Josie and Cord get together. Cord needs to be released from jail to help his younger sister and Josie needs to be married to adopt Sissy. They make their life together with a surprising ending! Looking forward to the next one.

Allyson Voller continues to narrate with precision and emotion. Love it!

Ugh!

I should've known better. I don't know why I expected anything. It was like it was written by a middle schooler and read by someone who does voices for the Sheriff Callie cartoon. Cringeworthy!
