a heart broken, a life mended, a love ignited

After Cade Walker’s gambling spirals out of control, Rose walks away from her marriage—and straight into motherhood by adopting Daisy, her cousin’s biracial daughter orphaned in a Typhoid outbreak. Heartbroken and overwhelmed with the task ahead of her, Rose returns to her hometown of Tall Pine, Colorado, where she seeks the comfort of friends and family. The one person she doesn’t ever expect to see again is her husband, Cade—but when he comes riding in to town, her world is once again upended. One her way to Tall Pine, Rose encounters Meg , who lives under the abusive rule of her stepfather as the cook at his hotel. Before she knows it, Rose has convinced Meg to escape with her to the safety of Tall Pine. Away from the blows and anger of her stepfather, Meg is looking forward to a tranquil life—that is, until she meets the town doctor. Meg immediately recognizes him from the hotel, and though she has long admired him from a distance, she knows she can never be worthy of his love.

When cattle thieves, murder, and shadows from their pasts threaten all that Rose and Meg hold dear, they must find the courage to forgive, to heal, and even to love again.

a heart guarded, a secret revealed, a love discovered

When the beautiful and coddled Abigail Silver is sent from her parents’ lush Texas ranch to the untamed wilds of Tall Pine, Colorado, her mother is hoping that Abigail will learn independence and self-reliance. What Abigail finds among the Colorado mountain people is a community built on hard work, faith, and family––she also finds the handsome Pastor Will who, much to her dismay, seems only to have eyes for Esther, the community’s midwife hiding from a dark past. Fiercely protective of her young son Michael, Esther’s determined not to let anyone ­close enough to hurt them––even if that means sacrificing true love. But when the Texas Ranger Joseph Silver, Abigail’s brother, shows up, Esther’s past is unearthed and her heart is exposed. Abigail and Joseph’s brash Texas manners rattle the people of Tall Pine, but ultimately the brother and sister may be an answer to prayer the townspeople didn’t know they needed.
