Genre: Historical Romance
Desperate to save her four-year-old sister, Jenna, from the clutches of the man who would exploit her extraordinary gift of the sight, Sophie Dolan kidnaps her. When she spies the advertisement in the paper for a schoolteacher in Tanglewood, Nevada, Sophie takes Jenna and flees.
For Sheriff Ridge Hawkins, everything is black and white. There are no shades of gray, until he collides with 24-year-old Sophie and her daughter. From then on, his fairly staid life is a whirlwind of emotions and change. Having lived with ridicule and disdain all her life for her gift of the sight, Sophie believes the fresh start is just what they need.
Dismayed to find the schoolhouse rundown and the Sheriff a man to be reckoned with, Sophie takes the town by storm, and she and Jenna soon win everyones heartsincluding that of one ex-gunfighter.
Generously peppered with laughter, poignancy and multi-dimensional characters, Kathleen Kanes vibrant and remarkable storytelling skills shine in this beautiful, heart-touching love story. Sophie and Jenna not only find a home in Tanglewood, but the townsfolk welcome them into their hearts with open arms, and Sophie and Ridge discover that with faith, trust and love, any thing is possible.
