When John Harper arrives in Roswell to settle his Uncle Douglas’s estate, it’s to find he is not welcome. His name seems to bring fear and loathing to the townspeople. Yet, from his correspondence, his uncle lauded himself as a champion for the New Mexico Territory.

Darcie Malone is appalled when she finds her mother rented a room to the nephew of the man she blames for her father’s death. Oh, not through weapons, but through stress and worry. Douglas Harper drove her father into his grave, and for that, no restitution is possible—not even with the man’s nephew—no matter how attracted she might be to him.

Will Darcie allow the love of God to bring about forgiveness and reconciliation? Can she ever see John as a man who desires to make amends and a future with her? AMAZON
