BLURBThough she was only a child during the darkest days of Ireland’s Great Famine, Katie Macauley feels responsible for the loss of her family’s land and the death of her sister. Now a woman grown, Katie has left Ireland for America and the promise of earning money enough to return home again and plead for her family’s forgiveness. She arrives in Hope Springs, Wyoming Territory, a town sharply divided between the Americans who have settled there, with their deep hatred of the Irish, and the Irish immigrants who have come searching for a place to call home. Her arrival tips the precarious balance, and the feud erupts anew. Even in the midst of hatred and violence, however, Katie finds reason to hope. Two men, as different as they are intriguing, vie for her heart, turning her thoughts for the first time toward a future away from Ireland. Katie must now make the hardest decision of her life: stay and give her heart a chance at love, or return home and give her soul the possibility of peace.
When grief, pain and guilt have been the driving force in your life how do you learn to allow love in? Katie was a different heroine then I am used to. She was strong and fragile at the same time making for the inability to predict the outcomes of the situations. In the beginning of the story I was worried that it would be a boring and predictable read but Ms. Eden has quite the word weaving power able to grab and capture your attention. Follow Katie's journey and the adventure of learning to love.
