When fragmented images and unfocused panic force Noelle St. Claire to flee her wealthy, sheltered life in New York, she gains sanctuary on a ranch in the Rocky Mountains. There Noelle finds solace in the breathtaking scenery she paints. But as the attentions of two brothers, Rick and Morgan Spencer, breach the wall she hides behind, the past she yearns to escape becomes a menacing threat from which she can no longer hide. Award-winning and bestselling author Kristen Heitzmann has skillfully created a story resonating with emotion and depicting a poignant spiritual journey.
I loved this book. Noelle has a horrible past she is trying to stay one step ahead of that keeps catching up with her. She runs straight into a love triangle! In the Rocky Mountain foothills she comes to a ranch and meets Rick and Morgan, brothers and both interested. Rick is a Christian cowboy and Morgan a non-Christian business man. Noelle wants neither but both at the same time. She is just settling down into some sense of safety her past comes flying toward her and shatters the comfort she was beginning to feel.I love that the author tackled so many touchy subjects and did it in straightforward but tasteful way. The characters were wonderfully developed and REAL. They didn't come off as some of the other religious fiction that get immediate answers to their prayers. They HAD to have faith to get through difficulties and just believe God was there for them without a miraculous sign, but with a strong true faith. Also the author didn't shy away from giving Noelle realistic reasons for not wanting anything to do with faith and good arguments against it! The suspense was nonstop, romance wonderfully suspenseful, and the whole package was just great!
I rate this 5/5! Very inspiring book...you won't be able to put it down.
