About the Book
Brody McQuaid is struggling with the demons of war, so he focuses on saving wild horses that are being hunted by ranchers in South Park. He loves his little niece but otherwise does not have time for romance or love. Savannah Marshall has escaped to South Park after running out on a wedding planned by her father, and she is drawn to Brody’s compassion for the horses. But soon the past catches up to both Brody and Savannah and they are forced to deal with the problems that have been haunting them.
About the Author
Jody Hedlund is the author of over thirty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award. She lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!). When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.
I am always so impressed with Jody Hedlund’s ability to create characters with depth, struggles, and emotions that make them seem so real. I loved Brody and Savannah’s story! Brody is aptly named as he has that brooding quality to him, haunted as he is by the war. The romance was so well written and their relationship was heart tugging and believable. I also loved Savannah’s heart both for horses and for Brody; her compassion and love is so sweet. Beyond the well-developed characters are an intriguing storyline, fascinating history, and wonderful spiritual truths that make a well-rounded novel characteristic of this fantastic writer. I have so greatly enjoyed this series and I am looking forward to the next one! Highly recommended!
