The author has written an amazing , riveting, emotional and hard to put down book. It captured my attention right away as the story flowed with ease and powerful characters. The emotions were raw and so intense I felt drawn into the story as I devoured every word.
Colt is a well known person on Wall Street. He has all the nice suits and the look of a winner. But as the stock market starts to take a dive, he makes a decision to go back to his hometown. He grew up on a huge ranch called the Double S. It won't be easy going home for him since he has some relationships that need mending. So begins the story of a modern day prodigal son. Will he be welcomed by everyone?
Angelina finds herself working as a housekeeper at the ranch. She is very hard working and family oriented. When she meets Colt it is almost like an explosion going off. He didn't expect her to be in the house and she wasn't expecting him at all. As they begin to get more accustomed to each other they begin to have feelings for each other. Angelina knows that she is hiding something about her past and it is just a matter of time before her secret is found out. Will Colt support her or will he feel betrayed?
The story delivers a very touching and realistic look at a family who has has unforgiveness to work through. The journey will sometimes be painful but can God heal their broken hearts and restore unconditional love? I loved how the author writes with elegance about restoration and true forgiveness with grace.
