Watercolorist Olivia Rutherford has shed her humble beginnings to fashion her image as an avant-garde artist to appeal to the region's wealthy art-collectors. When she lands a lucrative contract painting illustrations of Yosemite National Park for a travel magazine, including its nightly one-of-a-kind Firefall event, she hopes the money will lift Olivia and her sisters out of poverty.
After false accusations cost him everything, former minister Clark Johnson has found purpose as a backcountry guide in this natural cathedral of granite and trees. Now he's faced with the opportunity to become a National Parks Ranger, but is it his true calling?
As Clark opens Olivia's eyes to the wonders of Yosemite, she discovers the people are as vital to the park's story as its vistas--a revelation that may bring her charade to an end.

Susie Finkbeiner, author of A Cup of Dust, A Trail of Crumbs, and A Song of Home
"Yosemite National Park is as stunning and unforgettable as this books leading lady, artist Olivia Rutherford, in this lush, atmospheric blend of visual and natural art. Karen Barnetts deft prose sweeps each page with the same delicate touch as Olivias brush so that the 1920s-era park comes to life. Armchair travelers will sense every sight, smell, and touch thanks to Barnetts inimitable spirit of place."
Rachel McMillan, author the Van Buren and DeLuca series
"Capturing the grandeur of Yosemite National Park with words is a bit like harnessing the wind. Yet this talented author does just that. Karen Barnetts story drew me in on the first page, her descriptions of Yosemite took my breath away, and her well-developed characters kept me turning pages until the end. I loved Where the Fire Falls!"
Ginny L. Yttrup, award-winning author of Words and Flames
