Now, five years later, in the winter of 1883, Noelle lives a quiet life with her aunt, uncle, and cousins. Her blindness has caused her to give up all her dreams of love, marriage, and children. On their way home from town during a blizzard, Noelle and her aunt are almost killed by a runaway horse, but a stranger saves them - a stranger Noelle soon realizes is Thad MacKaslin, who has returned to their hometown of Angel Falls, Montana. And although both Noelle and Thad try to deny it, they still have feelings for each other. Has God given them a second chance at love and happiness together?
This book was one of the most enjoyable historical romances I've read in a while. Fans of western and inspirational romances are sure to enjoy this story of two people who had given up on a future together but are given a second chance to realize their dreams. The love story was incredibly sweet and emotional, rather than so many romances which focus on the physical romance but neglect the emotional side of a relationship. I'd highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a sweet and emotional romance without all the graphic scenes.
Throughout the novel, Thad and Noelle reconnect. She does not trust him, but she tries to forgive him for the sake of peace, hoping their paths will rarely cross. Thad has other intentions, however. He's determined to prove to her that he is an honest man and that his love was true (and still is). Meanwhile, Noelle knows she cannot be his. She has lost her sight, and therefore, she believes, her value as a wife to him. Thad is a true hero, a man of integrity who cherishes the woman he loves and treats her with unfailing gentleness.
Yes, the story does become repetitive as mentioned in previous reviews. There is a lot of internal dialogue, and Noelle and Thad are constantly talking themselves out of falling in love with each other again (although it's obvious they never stopped loving each other).Read more ›
Long version: I cannot recommend this book to anyone, really. I suppose people who are interested in a Christian theme, in a gentle and chaste romance, may be able to more appreciate this tale than I could. However, that isn't to suggest that I need an explicit, non-Christian romance. I actually prefer a more chaste tale, myself. The Christian notes weren't particularly overbearing, either, but they also felt a little bit forced to me.
The main characters were basically likeable. They had values I can appreciate and respect. They both try their best.
But when faced with one another, it seemed as though neither had matured beyond the age of thirteen. I cannot tell you how many times one character would build up their love and hope and dreams, only to tear themselves apart, tear down their dreams, and remind themselves that they weren't worthy of the other character. I would accept a handful of times, total, between the two of them. I suspect I read two handfuls for each though out the entire story. It became painful to follow along. I think I skipped most of the last third of the book and started reading again 2 or 3 chapters from the end and from what I could tell, absolutely nothing had changed in either their relationship, or in the people and relationships around them.
That should not be possible. I should have felt like I missed some important piece of the story, because that's a lot of words and opportunities for ...Read more ›

Very enjoyable. Many many beautiful discriptable adjectives. Nice story line. I'm not sure the title did it justice, but
everything else was very fitting.
