She loves the land. Mattie Evans grew up in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Although her family has lost their ranch, she still calls this land home. A skilled young veterinarian, she struggles to gain the confidence of the local ranchers. Fortunately, her best friend and staunchest supporter is John McCray, owner of the Lightning M Ranch. They both love the ranch, and can’t imagine living anywhere but in the Flint Hills. He’s haunted by it. Gil McCray, John’s estranged son, is a pro football player living in California. The ranch is where his mother died and where every aspect of the tallgrass prairie stirs unwanted memories of his older brother’s fatal accident. Gil decides leaving the ranch is the best solution for his ailing father and his own ailing heart. But he doesn’t count on falling in love. Falling in love isn’t an option. Or is it? When Mattie is called in to save a horse injured in a terrible accident, she finds herself unwillingly tossed into the middle of a family conflict. Secret pain, secret passions, and secret agendas play out against the beautiful landscapes as love leads to some unexpected conclusions about forgiveness and renewal.

    " enjoyable yet predictable. A lonely veterinarian who loves the countryside meets a pro football player who can't wait to get away from the country side and back to the big city, at odds from the beginning. It's a story of sticking to your dreams but knowing when to compromise. Well written and I did enjoy this novel, I just wish more Christian fiction had unexpected twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 2/7/2013

    " The constant changing of thoughts got a little heavy and at times made the guy look a bit whimpy otherwise a pretty decent story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 9/21/2012

    " Oh my, this was not my kind of book, but that's what book club is all about; stretching yourself to try new kinds of books. I think this may be my third Christian romance book and it still isn't my thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 11/11/2011

    " This book was okay for Christian romance. If I must read Christian romance, then I prefer there to be something else going on -- some suspense, mystery, or interesting historical events. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tausha | 9/30/2011

    " I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It wasn't a "stay up all night to finish" type book but it was still enjoyable. It had a strong message of faith and forgiveness without being to preachy. Honestly....I think I liked it the most because I fell in love with Dusty ( yes, the horse). ;) "
