Artist Sessa Chambers may never recover from losing her prodigal son. Even as she grieves the tragic decisions that led to his death, and left her with a toddler to raise, she’s asked to work on her dream project—restoring carousel horses for the Smithsonian. But she can’t do it on her own…


Dr. Trey Brown can't pick up a scalpel again. Yes, he acted in self-defense, but the events of that awful night haunt him. He was trained to save lives, not take them. When he goes to the young man's widowed mother to apologize, she’s not at all what he expected. For one thing, she’s not as alone as he thought—not with the fearsome ladies of the Pies, Books, and Jesus Book Club in her corner. For another, she’s beautiful, and being in her presence is more jolting than any eight-second bronco ride from his former rodeo days. Before he knows it, she’s captured his heart as easily as they capture the fireflies gracing Sessa’s Texas ranch.


How can they overcome their past to embrace a future together?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book What a neat story. It shows the struggles in life. It shows forgiveness. It shows depending on God. It shows how you can grow. It was just a terrifically well-written story. Read it, you will thoroughly enjoy it I was given this book for my honest review

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Healing and Forgiveness This was truly a story about healing and friendship and finding new purpose in life. To me, it wasn't a straight-forward romance, as it was about so much more. The secondary characters had as much to do with the story as the main characters! I love the name, Sessa! It really fit the heroine and the author wrote her struggles and triumphs beautifully. Life had thrown her so many curve balls but she got through them with the help of her family and friends who stuck by her - even if they were a little "stifling" at times! I admired her greatly for taking on the raising of her newborn granddaughter when she didn't even know she existed! Then, there is Trey....the hero. He is the man responsible for killing Sessa's son, even though it was self-defense. He's a doctor and it's so hard for him to come to grips with this event and all that's happened. With Sessa and her community behind him, he learns to forgive himself and start a new life. I loved his acceptance of Sessa's granddaughter and how cute he was with her. There was a lot of humor in the book also. A wonderful summer read! ***I was given this book to review by the publisher for an honest review, which I've done
