Ten years after her parents were killed, Evelyn is once more homeless. The orphanage that was her refuge and later her workplace has burned to the ground, and only she and a young orphan girl have escaped. Convinced this must be related to her parents’ murders, Evelyn flees with the girl to Mesquite Springs in the Texas Hill Country and finds shelter in the home of Wyatt Clark, a talented horse rancher whose plans don’t include a family of this own.
Can Wyatt keep Evelyn safe from the man who wants her dead? She will do anything to keep Polly safe. After the orphanage burned and killed everyone, the only thing Evelyn can do is run.
The characters are well developed. I love that when Evelyn was faced with challenges she kept moving ahead with Polly. A sweet romance and chilling mystery that kept me up late at night turning the pages as I followed Evelyn and Polly’s story as they made their home in Mesquite Springs.
