Summary

A Christian historical romance novel.

Widowed and with child, Emma Malcom is fleeing from the reward offered for her arrest. She’s innocent of the dirty dealings her deceased husband orchestrated, but the angry townspeople didn’t stop to listen to her defense before she narrowly escaped with her life. Now, she and her twin brother, Joseph, must battle the mountain wilderness of the Rockies to reach Canada and the clean start she craves. But when a fall from the rocky cliff leaves Joseph wounded and weak, could the strange mountain man they encounter be God’s gift to see them to safety?

Simeon Grant makes bad choices. His deceased wife and twin babies are lost to him now because of his reckless decisions, and the penance he pays by living alone in this mountain wilderness is only a small piece of what he thinks he deserves. When a city woman, heavy with child, appears on his doorstep with her injured brother, her presence resurrects the memories he’s worked so hard to forget. And when she asks for his help to travel deeper into the mountain country, he can’t help wonder why God would force him to relive the same mistakes he’s already suffered through. Or maybe taking these two to safety could be the way to redeem himself.

But when their travels prove more treacherous than he imagined, Simeon finds himself pressing the limits of his ability to keep Emma and her brother safe. Can he overcome the past that haunts him to be the man she needs? Will Emma break through the walls around Simeon’s heart before it’s too late, or will the dangers of these mountains be the end of them all?

Sweet clean delightful romance

What a lovely Christian historical story written with such emotions you can feel the sorrow, pain as one woman runs for her life leaving behind a dead husband only taking with her an unborn child and her brother. The author does a great job with detail of showing us how the wilderness is wild and dangerous as the characters have one set back after another. Emma has been through so much losing everything she owns because her husband was not a good man, the towns people feels she must have been in on it when in truth she knew nothing. Her brother takes her on the run trying to outrun the law and the reward on her head. Her brother has a bad fall leaving him unable to take care of her or his self when a strange steps in helping them. They want him to be their guide, there is no way he will take another woman into the wilds, but he is given little choice with one expecting woman and a man who can’t help his self must less his sister. This was a very emotional roller-coaster ride that is well worth your time. A great read with true emotions and faith.

Ms. Woodworth’s really brought this story to live for me as she pulled me in using emotion filled with sorrow, anger, hurt and pain along with excitement, danger and thrills. I had no trouble picturing the events as they unfold. Her character voices are wonderful as she held me spellbound from each character that is hiding something. Her tones are right on the mark keeping the listener on the edge waiting for the next shoe to drop. There are no volume changes, no background noise or any repeating of words. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. Her male voices were just as good as her female voices, you have no trouble knowing who is talking and just what they are feeling. Her character voices are just great as well as her normal voice is very pleasant and easy to listen to. The narrator really pulls you into the mystery as the romance unfolds under danger and deceit. You can feel the uneasiness of the characters as they work through the emotions of loss, facing the outcome and the heart break of the past. Ms. Woodworth’s has no trouble pulling of this very emotional listen that captivates you and holds your attention.

I really enjoyed this story from the start, the author gives you a wonderful story that is vivid you can picture the details she gives in each scene. My heart went out to Emma taking on a journey of this kind can never be easy but to be carrying an unborn child dealing with all the issues that brings has got to be trying to say the least. The fear of not knowing when someone will catch up with you, taking you back for the reward, wondering if your child will make it to take it first breath and if it does will it have a mother. Joseph story is just as heartbreaking he has lost so much and fears to lose even more as the love grows between him and Emma. I liked the plot, the characters, the mystery and how it all unfolds. The author knows how to pull on your heartstrings pulling you in keeping you hooked from the first page. The ending is wonderful I just about cried. The author gives a wonderful clean read with faith as the base and a growing romance coming in a close second.

A Journy of Heartbreak turn to Joy

Simeon Grant lost his wife and children due to bad choices he made by moving them from civilization to the wilderness. Now he lives alone so that his life will not affect anyone else.

Emma Malcolm is running from the sins of her dead husband and she needs to get up to Canada where her family can help care for her and her unborn child. Accompanied by her twin brother, the two venture off on their own only to find that they are no match for the wilderness. They are fortunate when they come across Simeon and his willingness to lead them to their destination.

These three broken hearts come together on an adventure of a lifetime. Through hardships of wild animals, the elements, and Indians can these three find a joy to replace the heartbreak?

Misty wrote a great first book in this series. It is not a western, but a wilderness book with plenty of action, suspense, and clean romance. Leonor is becoming one of my favorite female narrators. Her characters are rich and I love the way she performs both male and female voices. I look forward to book 2!

Heart Tugging Lovely Story ;-)

This is the kind of story that tugs at the heart right from the beginning and leads you through a journey of life lessons and love. It is a well written tale of love lost then found again. Truly heartwarming! I am looking forward to the next book in this series and hope that Leonor A Woodworth narrates the rest of the series. Her narration is perfect for this type of adventure.

Love's Healing Power

This was a beautiful story of faith, love, forgiveness, healing and new discoveries. While faith was most prevalent, the power of love to strengthen, heal, instill bravery and courage won over all.
The story was riveting, beautifully written, the characters fully developed, majestic scenery and skillfully narrated. I loved everything about this audible. book and would not hesitate to share it with anyone.

Sweet story

Traveling through rough terrain isn't easy and less when pregnant but Emma (newly widow)had no choice. Along with her twin brother, they by chance get the help to get to Canada by Simeon Grant who unwillingly agrees to help them when he notices that Emma is with child. It was not an easy trip with many mishaps that drew Emma and Simon together. A sweet story full of strength and courage and of course a happily ever after.

Christian Romance with a Powerful Punch

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. The mountain wilderness was the perfect backdrop to this emotionally charged romance. Simeon and Emma were relatable, deep characters with realistic problems. If you like brooding, capable mountain men and strong, virtuous women, (and some adventure to boot), this is a story for you!
