Time for another review everyone, and I will start off saying that this has become one of my new favorite books on my growing bookshelf!


Alice Chesterfield is a woman pursued. Having survived an attack that left her scarred and her father dead, she is never free from the fear and memories of the man who is responsible.  Texas seems to be an answer to Alice's prayers, and when she has the opportunity to relocate to a ranch near Dallas, Robert Barnett captures her attention. Unlike any man Alice has ever known, Robert doesn't worry about the obstacles that stand in their way--and he hardly seems to notice the scar she bears. But there are storm clouds gathering; devastating information about her family comes to light, threatening Alice's peaceful sanctuary. Disillusioned, Alice must learn to place her trust in God as she seeks a measure of peace for her future...and for her heart.

Alice has not had an easy time of it in the past. After her house being robbed and her father killed in the attack she was left to face the world with little money to her name and a scar on her face that bares the constant reminder of all she had lost and for everyone to see.

We all have scars from our past, some are invisible and others like Alice's can be seen clearly. Alice kept her head down in hopes to hide her scar, and thought that no decent man would want her with such flaws. Such as the cook where Alice worked part time tried to ask her out in a not so nice way, and when she said no he used her scar to hurt her feelings. Have you ever had to deal with that?

Alice also had her share of blessings, her friend Marty gave her a job helping around the house. Marty is the female lead from the previous book, and she and her husband bring humor and a lot of thought to the book, you'll love them

In my personal opinion the story is some ways seemed a little rushed, I wish the other had gone a little more into Alice's past, and the romance formed between Alice and Robert took hardly any time at all, I wish there had been a bit more between them. Now when I started this book I didn't know it was book 2, and that it does connect to the book before it, but it wasn't to hard to put the pieces together and that did explain some of what happened in the first book later on.

I would tell all of you more but i find that spoiling too much of the book in a review takes away the fun of reading a book, so I will leave all of you here. I highly suggest picking up this book series and nice cup of whatever your favorite drink is and just enjoy!
