A New York Times extended list bestselling author, Dorothy Garlock has won acclaim and awards for her unique ability to convey both the romance and reality of frontier America. Here she presents one of her most beloved stories, a tale of two outcasts who must learn to take a leap of faith--and take a chance on love. She had narrowly escaped the lynch mob that unjustly hanged her foster father. Now lonely Willa Hammer has nothing left--except her dog Buddy, her faith in herself, and the protection of a strange, secretive family. She joins their wagon train, headed west . . . never realizing that she is traveling to the wilds of the Big Horn Mountains, where a run-down, intrigue-ridden ranch and the arms of an untamed, hardened cowboy await her. Haunted by his past, Smith Bowman has the power to infuriate Willa and hurt her. But a love greater than the Big Horn can be theirs if they can surrender to the gentle giving of their hearts.
