Booklist Review

Dr. Molly Whitcomb, summarily dismissed from her Georgia college after an ill-judged one-night stand with a fellow professor, journeys by rail and stage to tiny Timber Ridge, Colorado, and immediately compounds her error by announcing herself as a recent widow. Sheriff James McPherson, an upright but deeply compassionate man, welcomes her to town and installs her in his widowed sister's home, but attraction sizzles even as mistrust grows. Xenophobia, cattle rustling, and high unemployment rates precipitate violent clashes between townspeople, ranchers, and immigrants, while James and Molly journey toward a greater reliance on God. Alexander's latest Western-set inspirational is a complex romance set in 1879, continuing the Timber Ridge Reflections series (stand-alone novels connected only by location).--Welch, Lynne Copyright 2009 Booklist
