Image of Her Hesitant Heart

What’s better than a cowboy hero? A soldier hero! Kelly’s latest western is an emotional, uplifting, delightful romance about two wounded souls who find love and comfort in each other. The scenery is authentic, the characters admirable and the plot engrossing.

Susanna Hopkins is a divorcée looking for a home and a second chance, which she hopes to find at Fort Laramie as the new schoolteacher. But, to save face, her cousin lies and says that Susanna is a war widow. The only one who knows the truth is the fort’s post surgeon, widower Major Joseph Randolph, who becomes her only friend and supporter. But forts are like small towns, and lies are soon uncovered. Susanna loses her job, her hope and almost her life — but Joe refuses to let her give up, and, in saving her, saves himself. (HARLEQUIN, May, 288 pp., $6.50)
