Newly married Carina DiGratia Shephard longs to make a home for herself and her husband, Quillan, in the rugged mining town of Crystal, Colorado. Quillan, however, has turned away to confront the haunting pain of his troubled childhood. Out of her loneliness, Carina opens a restaurant and through its success soon attains the independence and identity she has long sought. When Carina is attacked in retaliation for her kindness to the destitute families of miners, everything changes. Will Quillan exchange his bitterness for the forgiveness of God in time to save their marriage?

Critic Reviews

"Heitzmann's adventurous Westerns provide a crossover appeal with historical romances and belong on the shelves next to Stephen Bly and Brock Thoene." ( Library Journal)

Amazing series!

The second book in the Diamond of the Rockies series will not disappoint! I highly recommend all three books plus Secrets, Unforgotten, and Echoes. The narrators for both series do a fantastic job!

excellent read, narrator could have been better

the narrator's soft, sweet voice didnt match the spitfire attitude of the heroine. She'd be a great narrator for a different character, just not right for this book!
