Praise for The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series
"A beautiful tale. Intriguing. Inviting. Inspiring."
Cindy Woodsmall, author of The Hope of Refuge and When the Soul Mends
"Its always a joy to read a historical novel that isnt afraid to let its women escape the farm. Cripple Creeks cast of colorful characters play host to a new romance, as well as pulling back the curtain on a local family tragedy. This
sequel does more than simply tell the "next" story; it revisits the characters weve already come to love and creates a complementary depth to an entertaining new tale."
Allison Pittman, author of Stealing Home and The Bridegrooms
