About to lose her ranch, widow Sarah Winborne decides to marry and then divorce later after she saves her home. She has heard that the Randolphs have some of the best and most trustworthy ranch hands, so she travels to their ranch with her two children to investigate.
She meets two hands who would fit her requirements and ends up marrying Salty, who helps her rebuild the ranch. Constant contact with each other and everyday problem solving bring them closer until they finally come together. Just as they begin to find their footing, ghosts from Sarah’s past and a menacing neighbor interfere with their happiness. (LEISURE, Sep., 380 pp., $7.99)
