New Mexico--Fiction; Historical fiction, American; Romance fiction, American
For handsome, hard-riding cowhand, Heck Benham, life is as solid as the New Mexico countryside he loves, as predictable as the annual spring roundup. Yet, all that changes when Mrs. Ruth Reynolds moves from back east into his homeland and his heart.
The stark contrast in their lives is played out in a territory that is, itself, coming into its own. As Ruth and Heck face a trail of pivitol, life-changing decisions, their love is challenged at ever turn. What will it cost them before they find what is most important in life?
With strong characters, true-to-life emotion, gentle humor, meticulous attention to detail and historical accuracy, Liz Adair paints a passionate tale of love and learning, of romance and redemption. (Publisher website)
