After years on the trail, Marshal Wyatt Caradon finds himself at a crossroads. He's brought countless men to justice, but he questions what lasting good his life has accomplished. When his path intersects that of young Robert Ashford, Wyatt glimpses himself, years ago, in the boy's pride and arrogance. He also sees a boy without a firm hand in his life. His well-meant attempt to help Robert brings him face-to-face with the one situation he never wanted to encounter--and the one woman who holds the key to helping him find his future.
Set against the rich, untamed backdrop of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, The Inheritance is the first historical from WOMEN OF FAITH FICTION, and is a journey that explores the depth and breadth of a parent's love, the inherent risk in learning to trust, and the cost of laying down your life for one you love.

I've loved every novel I've read from Tamera Alexander, and I'm convinced that she can't write a bad book. McKenna, Wyatt, Emma, Mei, Chin Li, and even Robert were characters that I cared about and rooted for. The Inheritance has it all-- top-notch writing, plenty of action, some mystery, a beautiful love story, and a spiritual thread woven naturally throughout. I stayed up well past a respectable bedtime to finish this book because I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it for readers who love quality historical fiction!
