Left wounded by a marriage cut short, Suzanna Wilton leaves city life to take up residency in a tiny Nebraska town. Her introduction to her neighbor Paul Rustin is a disaster. Assuming he’s as underhanded as the other local cowboys she’s already met, Suzanna greets him with sharp hostility.
Though Paul is offended by Suzanna’s unfriendliness, he can’t stop thinking about her, which unsettles his peaceful life. A hard-fought friendship slowly kindles something more, but just as Paul’s kindness begins to melt Suzanna’s frozen heart, a conflict regarding her land escalates in town. Even in the warmth of Paul’s love, resentment keeps a cold grip on her fragile heart.
Will Suzanna ever find peace?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Author and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
Jennifer Rodewald is amazing! I went into this book with an open mind and heart, as I wasn’t quite sure what I would get out of the story. Ms. Rodewald is a new-to-me author and I tend to be cautious when I start their books. Boy, was I ever surprised! The emotions that filled me after reading this book! It definitely had all the feels.
I felt all of Suzanna’s emotions. Her heart ache, her struggles, all of them were mine. I could relate to her well created, complexity of character. My walk with God hasn’t always been an easy one, and I feel that with Suzanna and her life as she comes to terms with the events of her life. Like she could learn to trust in Him just a little more and her walk in life would be easier. I loved that. Being able to relate to the main character is one of the bonuses of a well written book.
Let’s not forget Paul! I loved him. Bless him, he was truly a wonderful, God fearing man and as he learned more about Suzanna, I could feel the turmoil in his heart as he struggled with what to do! I just wanted to hug him!
I’ll tell you now that you need to grab a copy of this book. You’ll be taken on a roller coaster of emotions as you follow the story. The characters will make a permanent home in your heart and Ms. Rodewald’s writing style will leave you in awe. I definitely give this book high praises and 4.5 stars worth of recommendations! I can’t wait to read another amazing book by this author.
