Widow Rachel Boyd struggles to keep her ranch afloat and provide for her two young sons, though some days it feels as though her efforts are sabotaged at every turn. When her cattle come down with disease and her sons’ lives are endangered, she must turn to Rand Brookston, Timber Ridge’s physician and reluctant veterinarian. While Rachel appreciates his help, she squelches any feelings she might have for Rand—her own father was a doctor and his patients always took priority over his family. Rachel refuses to repeat the mistakes her mother made. But when she’s courted by a wealthy client of the local resort, she faces a choice: self-sufficiency and security, or the risk inherent in the deepest of loves.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An entertaining romance that will warm your heart and stir your faith. Without being preachy, Alexander guides readers to the foot of the Cross. The reminder that life holds no guarantee on happiness, but we must continue to keep our hearts open and trust God will resonate with readers.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Alexander crafts a pleasing and well-written romance that is filled with adventure and intrigue. Subtly weaving in the main character’s steadfast faith in God, the book is full of faith and full of life. Readers who enjoy romantic novels but also want to feel inspired will definitely enjoy this satisfying read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Alexander exposes pain and loss, then paints a picture of true redemption and trust. In her iron-willed characters we find the rugged individualism and courage that the people of the American frontier are known for, and fans of inspirational historical fiction will be moved by how friendship turns into desire.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 2/17/2014

    " I think this was my favorite book of this collection so far. It took my a little while to get into the story, but by the middle I was hooked and wishing for all good things for these characters. It's always a nice change of pace for me to read a good historical romance/fiction. This is one of my favorite kinds of books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Olivia | 2/12/2014

    " I am having a difficult time reading this book. It's outside of my normal genre. The writing seems stilted and heavy and I can't read more than 30 minutes at a time. There seems to be so much writing spent on the characters inner thoughts that I find myself skipping whole paragraphs to get on with the story. In one scene, an action occurred, then three pages of intropection from the characters before the action continued. Sorry, but just not my type of writing. "
