About the Book

Caroline Fyffe returns to the windswept prairies of Wyoming with a beautiful story of rekindled love…

Wyoming Territory, April 1882

Thomas Donovan spent eight long years in prison, convicted of a crime he didn’t commit. Finally released, he returns home to Logan Meadows, Wyoming, to discover his parents long buried and his neighbors wanting nothing to do with him. Suddenly the fresh start Thom longed for seems downright impossible—until a spirited beauty from his past becomes his unlikely champion, and the walls around his injured heart begin to crumble…

Hannah Hoskins was brokenhearted when Thom Donovan was sent away. While the rest of the town was quick to brand him a no-count thief, Hannah always knew better. Now the boy she once loved has returned home a man—a man whom Hannah’s suitor, the town’s deputy sheriff, is determined to destroy. When a crime spree starts anew, suspicion immediately falls on Thom, and it’s up to Hannah to prove his innocence, earn him a second chance at life—and win them both a second chance at love

What People Are Saying...

“Complex characters with honest emotions. Like her previous books, Fyffe brings the ring of truth to her stories,”

– Mary Beth Magee,

“Totally enjoyable,”

– Gale Pace, Books, Reviews, Etc. 

“I like a Western theme in novels and this one is easily one of the best I have read in quite awhile. Kind of reminds me of Lavyrle Spencer’s books with that setting. There is strong, sympathetic storyline and once you start this one you’ll find it hard to put down.”

– Valerie Wood, Author and Sports Journalist

“An easy read with believable characters.Lots of suspense in the development of the story. After reading Book 1 I could not resist Book 2.”

– Lois, Amazon Review

“The book series is just a great escape into the wild west. Told Hallmark style. Most of the town people are honest hard working families building a new community.”

– Kindle Customer, Amazon Review

“This was one of the best novels I have read in a long time! The author’s writings were clear and well put together. The book moved along, wasn’t boring for a minute and I had a hard time putting it down. Loved it!!”
