This book held a little bit of everything for me. I love a book that isn’t all fluff and love, but has a some meat to the plot. Barbara Goss has given this to us with Cassie and Silas’s story. The two have been in love for several years, and through some old baggage of Silas’s and some unfortunate events that take place, this couple perseveres. There is suspense, love, angst, faith, sadness and even some real worry about health throughout the book, bringing all emotions as you are reading it. It is a definite must if you enjoy books that are real and completely believable. I was enthralled and had to see how things would turn out. Signs of a good book!
Garrett L Whitehead is a new narrator for me, and I think he did a great job with this story. He sounds young, perfect for the age group of the characters and the western twang was fitting

This story touched my heart and the narrator was perfect!! Do not miss any of the Hearts of Hays series or for that matter anything Barbara Goss writes!! Hours of heartfelt entertainment and great lessons learned.
There are some twists and turns in this book that I did not expect at all. Barbara Goss has a tendency to do this, which is fantastic. You think you know what is going on, but boom, she throws something in that just makes you go “WHAT?!”
