Description-


  • Bumping into her ex-fiancé shatters Millie Wilson all over again. Now that she's back in Montana to care for her dying father, her real burden is the secret she's never divulged to Hunter McKaslin.

    Millie can't blame Hunter for his anger upon learning he's a father. He's never gotten over opening his heart, only to have it broken. Yet Millie senses a new goodness in Hunter. Finding their lost dreams now seems possible--if forgiveness and trust can find a place in this fresh start.

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    "You always were good for nothing, girl." Her father's bitter voice grumbled through the small, unkempt house. "Get the lead out of your lazy butt and fetch me something to eat. I'm gettin' hungry."

    Millie Wilson straightened up, mop handle clutched in one hand, closed her eyes and prayed for strength. The Lord had to help her because she wasn't sure she could do this without Him. The call in the middle of the night, a doctor's voice on the other end of the line, her father's collapse and terminal prognosis. If only there had been anyone--anyone at all--to take over his care. "I have to go to the market, Dad."

    "You should have thought of that earlier," he barked from the other room.

    And I came back, why? She swished the mop into the sudsy bucket, wrung it out and scoured the last patch of kitchen floor. Marginally better, but it was going to take more than one pass over. She didn't want to think how long it had been since the floor had a proper cleaning--it would take a scrub brush and a lot of elbow grease to get out the dirt ground into the texture of the linoleum--a job for another time. Her back ached just thinking of it.

    "Millie?" A knock echoed above the hum of the air conditioner. A familiar face smiled in at her, visible through the pane of glass in the door. The foreman tipped his Stetson and rolled the tobacco around to his other cheek while he waited for her to open the door.

    "Hi, Milton. What's up?" She squinted in the bright summer sun.

    "We got problems. Paychecks bounced. Again." Milton paused a moment to gather his spit, turn aside and spew a stream of tobacco juice into the barren flower bed. "The boys aren't going to stand for this. They've got rent due and mouths to feed."

    "I know." Why didn't this surprise her either? She rubbed her forehead, which was beginning to pound. "I'm overwhelmed here. I haven't even thought about Dad's finances."

    "They're a shambles, that's what." Milton shook his head, his weathered face lined with a mixture of grief and disgust. "Work is scarce in this part of the county. No one wants to walk away from a job right now. I know Whip is sick, but if he doesn't take care of his workers, then we can't work for free. Those cows need to be milked no matter what."

    "Give me a day to problem solve. Can you ask everyone to wait? I'm here now, I've been here for two hours. Let me figure out what's what, and I'll do everything I can to make good on those checks."

    "We appreciate that, Millie. I know you'll do your best by us, but I don't know what the boys will go for." Milton tipped his hat in a combination of thanks and farewell before he ambled toward the steps. "Keep in mind that if things don't get better..."

    "I hear you." Someone had to do the work, and it took a team of men to do it. As Milton headed off back down the driveway, Millie wondered if she remembered how to run a milking parlor. That part of her life seemed a world away, nearly forgotten. Probably intentionally.

    "Put ice cream on that list, girl, and get a move on." In his room, Pa must have hit the remote because the soundtrack from a spaghetti Western drowned out every other noise in the house and kept her from arguing. The pop of gunfire and the drum of galloping horses accompanied her while she upended her mop bucket over the sink, stowed the meager cleaning supplies and made a mental grocery list.

    Time to blow this place. She grabbed her purse and the big ring of farm keys. She called out to her dad, not sure if he could hear...
