She has a secret she’s kept for over ten years. Going home, Jordan realizes she can’t keep this secret much longer. She has to face her fears and tell what she’s been hiding.

I enjoyed reading about Jordan Masterson and Zachary Rutgers. They were high school sweethearts torn apart by life’s struggles and different ambitions they had for

I give this book 3 stars for being a sweet, clean, read. It was very, very, repetitive though and could have been about 100 pages shorter.(Although, it is only just over 200 pages as it is.) It was just okay for me, but I do appreciate the cleanliness and the message of forgiveness that is taught throughout.

I put this down as a Christian Romance because God and forgiveness is mentioned, but it is far from being preachy.

Margaret Daley did great job with this book. Highly recommend reading it.
A cowboy and his family plus a smart kid. Lesson on forgiveness is one of the main point. A good read!

For those liking cowboy stories, here is an excellent one. It was a restful one to read after reading so many suspense stories. It was enjoyable and I highly recommend it.
