Leah Carlson is keeping the home (or I should say ranch) fires burning while her ne'er do well father is drowning his sorrows-- one bottle of booze at a time. Things are about at their breaking point when Leah takes matters into her own hands and asks the bank for a loan.
Young professional Steven Harding has the pleasure of making Leah's acquaintance at the bank, but must deny her request. Not the best way to start a relationship...
In true Miralee Ferrell style, every character must come to grips with challenges from personal to spiritual growth, to major hurts from the past that will require tough decisions and some good hard looks at lives lived and mistakes made in order for resolution and (hopefully) redemption to take place.
I liked how Miralee focused on the male characters' past hurts that have led them to respond in believable ways such as drinking, anger, or just plain shutting off potential relationships.
I admire the heroines of the past who through sheer grit and determination kept their heads when life and love hung in the balance!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Miralee and her husband, Allen, live on 11 acres in Washington State. She loves to minister to women (as a certified Lay Counselor with the AACC) or through her writing, riding her horse, working in her flower beds and playing with her dogs—her 7 lb, long-haired Chihuahua, Lacey, spends a lot of time on her lap while Miralee is writing. Miralee speak at various women’s functions and has taught at writers’ conferences. She’s been writing since 2005, and her first book released in 2007. Since then, she’s had 10 more books release, both in women’s contemporary fiction and historical romance, and she’s had the honor of being a best-selling and award-winning author.
ABOUT THE BOOK
When her father's debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson's family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah's family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she's fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.
This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman's past.
