$19.99

Paperback
:Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at a young age and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes--one bright blue, the other dark brown--Eva has fought to find her way in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet the support of even one person can help overcome the world's judgments, and Eva has two--Seth and Zach, two former orphans she now counts as brothers.

Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler arrives in 1880s Pecan Gap, Texas, to confront Zach Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father's death. Only instead of finding a solitary ruthless gambler, he discovers a man not much older than himself with an unusual family. When Zach's sister, Evangeline, insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time their paths cross, Logan finds his quest completely derailed. Who is truly responsible for his lost legacy, and will restoring the past satisfy if it means forfeiting a future with Evangeline?

Fun Christian Western Romance

Evangeline, Zach, and Seth Hamilton are an unlikely family. In fact, they aren't a blood family. They created themselves from the ruins of a long-ago orphan train. Now the family farm in the small town of Pecan Gap, Texas. They've built a life for themselves.


Evangeline is a remarkable character. She has different coloured eyes-one brown, one bright blue-and has been ostracised by the townspeople. And she has a pet pig. She's adventurous and brave and caring, and has somehow managed to develop a strong Christian faith.

Logan is the first person who hasn't commented on Evie's eyes, and that makes him special. He's also a great character, a man with a goal who will stop at nothing to achieve that goal. But is it the right goal? Evie doesn't think so.

Logan is clearly the hero, but Zach and Seth are noble characters as well. Zach has sacrificed his own dreams to raise and support Evie and Seth. Seth has his own health issues which make life difficult. But they're a great team.

I think I've read all Karen Witemeyer's novels. I love her writing-her characters, her humour, and the way she seamlessly weaves in the Christian faith. Recommended for all lovers of Christian historical romance, especially westerns.

Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

Brilliant!!!!!
5 stars By Jacqui, Jul 02 2018
I found this a very difficult book to put down. My emotions were gripped and I was drawn in from the prologue. This is a book about deep love and shows how it can lead to both good decisions and unwise ones.  It confronts the question of what God's justice looks like too. This seems like it would be a depressing book to read but the depth of the characters make it a really great book.  Evie, the main character brings such joy and light as she reflects God's love and her faith to others. I can't wait to read Zach's story which I hope is the next book.
