Some memories are best forgotten… 

The Wyoming Territory is rife with lawlessness and disorder, something Annie Ledbetter and her parents discover when their wagon train is robbed. Seven years later, Annie settles into her lifelong dream as a teacher in the small town of Willow Falls. When she meets handsome rancher Caleb Eliason through a humorous misunderstanding, she is quickly drawn to his kind heart and charming smile. 

Former outlaw Caleb Eliason embraces his chance at a fresh start. Gone are the days of robbing stagecoaches and wagon trains. When he falls in love with the new Willow Falls teacher, he doesn’t realize they’ve met before—under much different circumstances. When his past comes to light, will it put the growing love between them at risk? 

Can forgiveness and redemption heal two broken hearts or will the past keep them from sharing a future?

Review: Will their linked past bring them together or tear them apart?

An engaging western romance, set against the Wyoming plains, with strong themes of faith and second chances. I adored the humorous meeting in the schoolhouse. I loved how supportive Caleb's family was of him, and how they accepted him despite his past.

There was also a great secondary storyline, which I enjoyed as well. Annie's brother was such a nice guy, and I liked how he encouraged her. Annie is a likeable heroine, clever and up for a challenge. 

Overall, this was an entertaining read with wonderful characters and an engaging plot that kept me reading. Perfect for fans of western romance!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
