Nothing can be hidden that won’t be revealed.

When her father dies, Katherine Levinson discovers her parents have kept secrets that render her happy childhood a farce. She and her gravely ill mother face eviction, and she has no choice but to appeal to the brother she’s never seen, the famous cattle baron, Rhyan Cason. Over her gravely ill mother’s objections, they move to Nebraska and the sprawling cattle ranch, Sollano.

Instead of the warm welcome, Katherine expects, she and her mother are met with whispers and scorn in the little prairie town near Sollano. Gradually, the sins of her parents’ past surface

and Katherine begins to doubt her very identity. With her brother busy with cattle rustlers and her mother too ill to be bothered, Katherine turns to Colt Holliman, a soft-spoken neighboring rancher, for comfort.

Tired of waiting for the right woman to come along, Colt has promised to wait for Charley Ryder, an acclaimed female sharpshooter and equestrian acrobat with the Wild West Show, but it’s becoming clear Charley loves the show more than him. As his attraction to Katherine grows, he finds himself spiritually conflicted. How can he break from past commitments and follow his heart?

Then unexpected danger strikes, testing Katherine’s and Colt’s faith in God—and each other.

My Thoughts: This was a delightful novel to read, the storyline is based in Nebraska. Nebraska is known for their corn, beef , horses ,rodeos and sugar beets! I lived in Nebraska and this brought back some great memories for me. The author has done a phenomenal job of bringing the reader into the ranching life. I love that she brings in the Wild West shows as well, there is so much history from the west that people don't have any idea that living in the west is truly like and the author has given the reader a great glimpse of the history.


Katherine is such a loveable character, the reader feels her plight, her father has passed away, her mother is ill, there are bills to pay. What is she to do?



Katherine sends a letter to a brother she hasn't met which changes her life forever.


Katherine has many things to deal with, the lies that her parents told her, gossip, and of course love. How must it feel to fall in love with someone promised to another? will she repeat her mother's past?


It's not hard to fall in love with Colt. He is every woman's dream, including Katherine's but Colt is promised to Charley; who it seems cares more about herself than anyone else.


This is a novel full of love, mystery, and suspense. It also shows us what happens when the love of money and pride come into our lives. It also teaches us that we must lean on God for everything and to turn to him when times get troubled.


I enjoyed the author's writing and will certainly be looking forward to reading more from Elaine Manders.

This is the first book I've read by Elaine Manders. And I flew through it. It was a good story and an easy read. Sometimes it felt like it was more of a YA book because of the wording, but it was still a good book. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and really liked the main girl, Katherine. How she handled everything that was thrown her way and her spunk. There was a mystery as well that kept the story moving. She had a lesson of forgiveness and trusting God in your life that was sprinkled throughout the book without being too strong.

I did feel that they showed affection in public and around each other more than was normal for that time period.

I received this book from Celebrate Lit for an honest review. ( )

It would be awful to find out when you are 18 that your mother is close to dying and that the man you thought was your father might not be your father and you have two olde brothers that you didn’t know existed. I loved how this story flows. I loved the characters of Katherine and Colt. I also really enjoyed Carianne and Rhyan. This was the third book in the series and I have not read books one and two but I hope to read them sometime. You don’t need to read them to really enjoy this one. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

I love reading western stories and this one is filled with such great history that 1885 came to life. I loved learning about Katherine and how her life was going to change forever when she travels with her mother to Nebraska. It's not every day you find out you have a brother who just happens to be a very rich cattle rancher. Her mother is quite ill so hopefully she can get some medical attention when they arrive. I loved the mystery surrounding who Katherine's real father is. What secret did her mother keep from her that may cause friction when they arrive into town?

It was so interesting to read about the Wild West Show. I can remember watching shows like that when I was younger. The stunts that were done by the people on the horses were death defying. I couldn't believe how precise they were. The horses were obedient and beautiful. Charley fascinated me with her skills not only on a horse but with a gun. She was definitely a good shot and I would feel safe around when it is discovered that there is a thief trying to steal cattle and horses.

One of the most beautiful things said in the story was by Colt as he was consoling Katherine. He said, "Your name doesn't define you. Your parents don't define you. Your past doesn't define you. You're made in the image of God, and that makes you equal with everyone else. Never forget that." If only we could remember that when we feel shame or unworthy. It was a moment for me to realize that my insecurity needs to disappear and to hold my head up.

Katherine is surrounded by secrets from her past and the town is sure doing a good job of gossiping abut her. I loved the story between Colt and Katherine. Katherine is hesitant in showing her feelings to Colt. Will she learn to trust him? I loved the intrigue in the story and the author caught me by surprise with the story line. I began to wonder who could be trusted when a baby is kidnapped. The story has plenty of action and a lesson in trust, jealousy and believing in yourself and God.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )

This book does not have a dull moment, and just when you think things are calming down, nope!
This is the third book in this series, and the first that I have read, now I want to read the others, but although there were a few instances where things were mention, I did not feel lost.
The author has given us Katherine, a young woman that was torn from the world she knows when her beloved father dies, and then she finds out that her life was a lie, wow! What a tangled web, and the bombshells kept dropping.
This is just a taste of what happens here, and yes, she is rescued by a brother she doesn’t know, but that is just the beginning, and we see how these people wear their faith, and share their love of God.
Don’t get too comfortable, because the author keeps us on the edge of our seat, for a great read!
I received this book through Celebrate Lit Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
