Mallory's life is changed completely when she leaves her hometown of DC to head to Texas with her new husband and step-son. They arrive in Moses Lake to find conditions that are the polar opposite of what they expected and what they are use to. Can Mallory learn to trust or will she die of loneliness in this forsaken town?
I'm not sure how to describe this book. It has a bit of romance, some intrigue and mystery, and plenty of southern charm. It's small town living mixed with politics and city life. It was interesting from the very beginning and kept me entertained the entire way through. It has elements that will probably speak to almost every reader. My favorite parts were the ones that focused on Mallory's decisions to work with what she had and learn joy in her circumstances. When I checked out the reviews before reading the story I noticed several talked about the disjointed plot line. It was there, for sure, but not bad enough that it distracted me from enjoying the story.
I received this book free of charge from Bethany House and Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
