Publisher's Summary

Needing to leave Sterling Orphan House at 18, Rose Sterling is to take toddler, Katie Hudson, to her father who works on the King Ranch in New Mexico Territory. She thought her biggest adventure would be getting there on the wagon train, but she was wrong.

Will Hudson can’t believe he has a daughter. His wife had left him for a gambler, and he’d been trying to cope ever since. He doesn’t make the best impression on Rose Hudson at first, but he sees how much his little daughter loves and depends on her. Can he adjust to fatherhood, or will he always be a disappointment to the women in his life?

Letty Sawyer is terrified of Indians since they killed her adoptive parents. When she ends up on the King Ranch, can Gray Fox show her that all Indians aren’t alike, and he would protect her with his life?

Orphan Finds a Home

A baby was dropped off at the door of the orphanage since the mother was dying. The mother’s last request was for someone to take the baby to her father. Rose, had reached the ripe age of 18 and must leave Sterling Orphanage, so she is given the task of presenting the man with a baby he didn’t know existed.

Will Hudson’s heart never healed after his young wife ran off with a gambler. He fills his days with work and has no plans for his future. He turned his back on God and abandoned the house he built for his wife.

When Rose arrives with a baby in her arms, she tells him that Katie is his daughter. How can he trust that this child is his?

I loved Rose’s strength and heart of love for those around her. Will is a genuine, broken-hearted hero who understandably battles with forgiveness and trust.

There are great side characters in this story. This is book 2 in the Cactus Creek series, but it’s thoroughly enjoyable as a stand-alone too.

Well done.

A situation that was unknown to the father, and with these two homeless now. Will he be able to open his home and heart to these two. Good narration added to this story I enjoyed. Given audio for my voluntary review

Great listen

I really enjoyed this book, it was a great continuation to the series. I like how the author tends to break some of the stereotypes that are out there amongst people and also that there's a nice dose of faith in the book.

Narrative was ok, however, I did feel like Will's voice was a little whiny.

I received a free copy of this audio book from the author and I am voluntarily leaving this review.

Christian Historical Romance

Christian Historical Romance

This story was even better than book one! The Christian messages were powerful! The stories varied and intriguing. And two romances instead of only one! There were several phrases spoken in Spanish that I wish were translated to English though.
The narrators were the same. I did enjoy have the two narrators! But my opinions were the same as book one, except there was stilting for Grey because English was his second language, but there shouldn't have been stilting for Letty's character except possibly her first meetings with Grey, because of her fear and unease.
Again, 5 stars for the story and 4 for the narration.
