Summary

A young woman who's lost everything, and the wealthy rancher who must choose between his family's power and his conscience to help her.

Laura, a young single mother, is barely making ends meet working as a maid at the Friessen mansion. Until one day she is fired, the next day she is evicted, and two days later her son is taken away.

Wealthy rancher Andy Friessen can have any woman he wants, but when Laura is fired by his mother over something he was responsible for, his conscience gets the better of him and he steps in to help. The problem is when he goes looking for Laura he not only discovers she's been living in her car, but the state took her child away.

With Andy standing beside her through a courtroom fiasco, they must fight together to regain custody of her son.

...haunts you like a melody.


I feel like I know this story by heart. The Awakening haunts you like a melody. Laura and Andy are caught up in a whirlwind of heartache, deceit and power. There are moments when your mind wants to step away, but your heart won't let you. Moran digs deep and delivers every emotion with a purity that touches the soul. Reading Eckhart is often times like forgetting to tell your heart to breath. It's an automatic reflex.

This one just about broke my heart.

This was a wonderful story but a tad bit more unrealistic than I usually like even in a romance that I read for escape thus 4 stars instead of 5.

I do like it when not so nice characters from previous books get redeemed and Andy did manage to redeem himself rather well.

I’m a bit disappointed that his mother and father didn’t get what they deserve but perhaps that will be addressed in another book in this wonderfully complex family saga.

I cried many sad tears for what Laura went through but she was one tough cookie and I cried happy tears when she finally got her HEA.

I enjoyed Melissa Moran’s performance of the story. I think she did a great job with all of the different voices.

I’m looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.
