OVERVIEW

In the prologue readers learn of Em, a semi-conscious girl with an apparent gunshot wound, apparently near death. This confused young woman has undergone years of neglect by a man who was recently killed in an attack, an attack by three men who also shot Em.

Seven years ago, Em was a new arrival at a home in Iowa after riding the orphan train. Secrets from her past haunt her, and her new life in the Western wilderness is a rough one. Now nineteen and with her guardian killed, she finally has the chance to search for her long-lost sister, a project she will not be able to do alone.

The Azure Springs Sheriff is Caleb Reynolds, a man who is determined to solve every case put before him. But it is not necessarily dedication that motivates him but rather a desire to impress his parents and make a name for himself. But falling in love has never been part of his plan.

Christian Impact

This novel’s only references to Christianity are a few mentions of people praying.

This book is slow at the start, but gradually gets more interesting with much positive change in several of the characters. It does have a happy ending.
