Publisher's Summary

Ty Elliot returns to his home after an absence of two years, knowing full well the danger which threatens him each hour he lingers in the old cabin in the mountains. But with his father on his death bed and his younger sister exhausted, Ty knows he must remain for a time at least. When his father makes a strange request and begs his returned son to "find her", Ty promises but is bewildered. Who is he to find? How can he set about the task of honoring his word? The only clues the dying man can give his son are a broken locket, a small photograph of a woman, and a few last whispered instructions: "Take care of your sisters." In confusion, Ty turns to his father's childhood friend, Carson, for advice. Would the older man be able to help Ty and his sister, Sally? How much time did Ty have at the cabin before "they" found out? Join Ty, Sally, and Carson on their journey in search of the missing sister. The dangers they encounter, the hardships they face, as well as the friendly homes they visit, will keep you listening. Set in the untamed west of the mid-1800s, this is a story the whole family will enjoy.

New Favorite

Oh, oh, oh, this book! So, so many heart-eyes! <3<3<3<3<3<3

I know I keep saying each new (to me) book by Rebekah is my favorite, but this one absolutely takes the cake. Okay, yes, still 'so far,' but it's smashed the 4.5 star mark and is demanding a full five. Maybe five and a half. (It's only getting five, for obvious reasons, but don't tell it that.) ;)

Specifics? You want specifics? All the little heart-eyes aren't enough? Okay, fine. Let's start with a plot that pulled me in from page one and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way. Not that the action was (always) that intense, but the lingering mystery, the unanswered questions, the eagerness to reach the end of the quest had me groaning any time I had to put the book down to focus on something else. (Thankfully, I was listening on audiobook, or I'd have been in real trouble.)

And the characters! (Insert all the heart-eyes!) Ty was so gentle and loving and protective under his rough exterior. Sally was a great mix of necessary ruggedness and girlish softness. Carson was such a wonderful friend to both of them. And the minor characters? So fun and diverse and well-differentiated! The German blacksmith and his Mexican frau/senora had me absolutely rolling! So much fun!

The descriptions kept me grounded solidly in the setting without making me want to skip over them. I mean...not that I'm ever tempted to do that. *ahem* Moving on. I never felt pulled out of the story by any words, phrases, or ideas that felt too modern for the time. And believe me, that's a serious compliment! Actually, I can't honestly name any element of this book that I think could be improved.

This was just such a wonderful story! Deep but simple. Gripping but gentle. Real but beautiful. Not only did I laugh out loud multiple times, I actually cried happy/sweet tears--and that's extremely rare for me! I can guarantee I'll be reading it again. (And again. And again. You know the drill. :D)

P.S.-- And lest I forget, the audiobook narrator was wonderful and really kept my attention and interest. Two thumbs up on the performance as well!

Content--some violence, including gunplay, and injuries, but not excessive or overly descriptive; a non-descriptive kiss; a man tries to force a kiss on a girl
