In this contemporary evangelical Christian romance, competent writing mostly overcomes some plot cliches, yielding an enjoyable novel. Spoiled rich girl Noelle St. Claire flees her wealthy daddy's estate in New York after breaking off her engagement to his protégé and junior partner, Michael Fallon, whose impetuous actions have pushed Noelle over the edge. She lands in Juniper Falls, Colo., at a ranch owned by Rick Spencer, a man dedicated to his horses and to God. Noelle is immediately pursued by Rick's charming rogue brother, Morgan-but something is haunting her, and she pushes him away. As the pampered Noelle wrestles the demons of her past and crafts a new identity for herself through her art, she finds that her fear of God is rooted in something traumatic that her mind refuses to remember. She doesn't find healing and resolution until the end of the tale, when she revisits the Catholic cathedral of her childhood. The novel offers some humorous moments in the interactions between the characters, and lovely nature details about the Rocky Mountains. Portions of the plot will seem familiar to regular romance readers (city girl flees home to encounter rugged cowboy in the mountains; damsel in distress is rescued by same), yet a few plot twists keep things interesting. Both Protestant and Catholic readers who like their romance with a large helping of faith will find much to enjoy in Heitzmann's light novel.

"Part contemporary romance, part modern Western, and part suspense fiction, this work will appeal to both female and male readers." -- Library Journal, Feb. 1, 2003

If you are a doer of the Word, you'll be able to have much to say to the main characters as they go through the pages of the book. My only criticism would be that usually such a selfish, coarse, and unprincipled person as Micheal would not take the course of action that he did at the end. I certainly recommend this book to anyone.
to evaluate what molds our lives and how someone who knows nothing about God or Church may perceive what we believe.
The mystery in the first lines captures you interest as you try to piece together the truths of the one who is running. It also shows
how we can effect the lives of those around us as she finds a place to hide but it is a place where the owner is a christian.
I recommend this book highly.
That said I love horses and mountains so what is not to love about this book. The story keeps you guessing about which brother she will love but in your heart you know.
Kristen Heizman is one of my favorite authors and she did not disappoint this time.
