From the Back Cover
Alone in a strange town, can she find healing for her new home . . . and herself?
Seven years ago, orphaned and alone, Em finally arrived at a new home in Iowa after riding the orphan train. But secrets from her past haunt her, and her new life in the Western wilderness is a rough one. When her guardian is shot and killed, Em, now nineteen, finally has the chance to search for her long-lost sister, but she won’t be able to do it alone.
For Azure Springs Sheriff Caleb Reynolds, securing justice for the waifish and injured Em is just part of his job. He’s determined to solve every case put before him in order to impress his parents and make a name for himself. Caleb expects to succeed. What he doesn’t expect is the hold this strange young woman will have on his heart.
Welcome to the charming town of Azure Springs, Iowa, where people care deeply for one another and, sometimes, even fall in love.
About the Author
Rachel Fordham started writing when her children began begging her for stories at night. She’d pull a book from the shelf, but they’d insist she make one up. Finally she put her love of good stories with her love of writing and she hasn’t stopped since. She lives with her husband and children on an island in the state of Washington.
Rachel Fordham is a new author to me. But I must say I enjoyed the book very much. It was entertaining, kept my attention, and the characters were interesting. I hadn’t heard about the orphan trains before, so I guess you could say the book was educational as well. I look forward to reading more by this author.
The only “negative” think I could say would be that I didn’t care for the design of the cover, I don’t get the “cutting off the head of the person” idea. But that is just a personal preference.
I would give this book a four out of five stars.
Revell provided me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
