Image of Angel's End (Berkley Sensation)

Holby’s Americana western features the grittiness of the old West, the gentleness of sweet love and the inspiration of believing in the goodness of mankind. Blending these elements seamlessly, while adding a dash of charm with the addition of animals and children, Holby enchants longtime western aficionados.

Cade Gentry is on the run, gut-shot and near death, when he wanders into Preacher Timothy Keys’ camp. The kindly minister cares for Cade, and when he is brutally murdered Cade follows his dying wish to take care of the people of Angel’s End. When sheriff’s widow Leah Findley brings home an unconscious man in need of care, she discovers he is the town’s new preacher — far too young and handsome to ignore. As he heals, Cade is drawn to Leah, but a man of God can’t have such wanton thoughts. When Leah contracts measles, and they are quarantined, their mutual passion explodes. Now, armed with faith in their newfound love, all they have to face is the danger from Cade’s past. (BERKLEY SENSATION, May, 321 pp., $7.99)
