Paperback

Mattie Evans, a young veterinarian in rural Kansas, saves a horse injured in a terrible accident. But she also finds herself tending the wounded relationship between a prodigal son and his ailing father. Love, conflict, forgiveness, and renewal drive the first book of the Seasons of the Tallgrass series.

^^Mattie Evans loves her work as a veterinarian almost as much as she loves the Flint Hills of Kansas.

^ ^And she has a special place in her heart for a gruff old rancher, John McCray, who has become a father figure to her.

^ ^So when John's estranged son, Gil, returns with thoughts to sell the family land and move his father to California, Mattie is drawn into a family conflict so deep that healing seems unlikely.

^ ^^ ^As layers of secrets are peeled away and old guilt resurfaces, Mattie struggles to understand Gil's past and wonders how she fits into his future.

^ ^Through the conflict, Mattie faces her own family's discord - complicated by a sister who has a few secrets of her own.

^ ^^ ^This contemporary love story, the first of the Tallgrass series, broadens the scope of romance novels to draw a compelling picture of regional beauty, personal conflict, and ultimate forgiveness.

She loves the land. Mattie Evans grew up in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Although her family has lost their ranch, she still calls this land home. A skilled young veterinarian, she struggles to gain the confidence of the local ranchers. Fortunately, her best friend and staunchest supporter is John McCray, owner of the Lightning M Ranch. They both love the ranch, and can't imagine living anywhere but in the Flint Hills. He's haunted by it. Gil McCray, John's estranged son, is a pro football player living in California. The ranch is where his mother died and where every aspect of the tallgrass prairie stirs unwanted memories of his older brother's fatal accident. Gil decides leaving the ranch is the best solution for his ailing father and his own ailing heart. But he doesn't count on falling in love. Falling in love isn't an option. Or is it? When Mattie is called in to save a horse injured in a terrible accident, she finds herself unwillingly tossed into the middle of a family conflict. Secret pain, secret passions, and secret agendas play out against the beautiful landscapes as love leads to some unexpected conclusions about forgiveness and renewal.

Great start to a series
4 stars By sarah, Feb 05 2015
A prodigal son type of story with elements of faith and forgiveness at its core. I enjoyed this novel more than I thought i would. Gill turns his back on his family's ranch after making a mistake and dealing with family tragedy. Mattie loves her hometown and the land - choosing to remain behind as her family move away to cities. 
These two meet and find they have to confront things that scare them most to move forward with their lives. 

Some excellent biblical truths are delved into in this book, reminding the reader that nothing is too great for God to forgive and provide a fresh start. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Loved it!
5 stars By Kimberly, Apr 28 2010
Really got a feel for the characters! I knew what would happen (it's one of those books when you can just tell who will end up with who! The blurb usually gives it away!) but I enjoyed the journey nonetheless!! Really made me think about what i would be willing to give up to follow God's plans, and how much it takes to let go of and forget the past. Stayed up until 3am reading!! Recommend :)
