Amy Deerson is a woman of faith with a passion for helping children, and quilts. Amy is stunned to see the man who left her 10 years ago come back into her life, but she doesn't back down and does what she can to help him and his sister.
Nash Bolton retired from bull riding to raise his 4 year old sister. Their mother was a drug addict, and little Ruby needs stability so he decides it's finally time to go to the place he swore he'd never return to because of how he left, and the girl he left behind.
Amy is unsure about Nash, but she doesn't have to think twice about helping Ruby. Nash is a great brother, and will do anything to help Ruby. Nash and Ruby have a special bond, he knows what she went through because he lived it, he hates seeing her struggle with the same habits that he had to break.
I loved Amy's faith, and she does her best to live it despite her painful past. She struggles to to the right thing, and was relatable.
Nash admires Amy for how far she's come, he knows that he couldn't be good enough for her, but he supports her dreams and appreciated her helping with Ruby. He is a rough tough cowboy, who loves his sister dearly, and is willing to put aside his pride to do what is best for her.
Ruby grows so much under Nash and Amy's care, she tries new things, and comes to trust Amy. Amy also must face Nash's past in order to help Ruby, and in so doing comes to understand the man who hurt her better.
This is one of the best contemporary books that I've read in a long time, and it definitely had me wondering why I'd never read Jill Kremerer before now! Highly recommend this tender romance about fighting for the ones you love, and forgiveness that brings healing in a broken world.
