Image of Endless Heart

Beth Williamson, writing as Lang, pens a winner with this tale of the Old West and its diverse inhabitants. She weaves intense friendships with new loves and dastardly bad guys. Her protagonists are flawed but help heal each other as they find a second chance at love.

Lettie’s first meeting with Shane is unforgettable: He vomits on her shoes. He’s a former soldier, now vagabond drunk, who lost his wife and child, then set out on a path of dissipation. Lettie nurses him into sobriety and back from the vicious beating someone had given him. Lettie comes with her own baggage. A second wife in the Latter Day Saints community, she was severely abused by her husband. Neither wants to face the fact that they are drawn to each other and find it strange they’ve been having the same lascivious dreams. When a trip to Benson for supplies throws them into each other’s arms and a dangerous situation, they realize they are meant for each other. But there’s a rocky road ahead.
