Publisher's Summary

A scandalous homecoming
When Amy Layton’s family learned she planned to steal her sister’s fiancé, Amy left home in disgrace. But in 1922, she returns to Powell Springs to escape the violent man she married. Despite the town’s gossip, Amy is determined to rebuild her shattered life with the boardinghouse she inherited…and little else.
A terrible secret
Deputy sheriff Baxter Duncan senses there’s more to Amy, his new landlady, than the rumors claim. Yet Bax respects her privacy. After all, a painful secret haunts him, too. And now that he’s found a future in Powell Springs, he refuses to let his dark and wretched past destroy everything he’s built.
A redemptive journey
As Amy struggles to make amends with her family, she finds a kindred spirit in Bax. But just as they begin to trust each other, a new visitor arrives in town—and this person knows enough to ruin them both. After so much pain, can Amy and Bax still fight for their dreams…and win?

Wonderfully written and great performance

I really enjoyed this series. It captures the essences if what life truely was in the early 1900 s
I really appreciated do the struggles of what people during that era experience such as epidemics, poverty, social expectations, etc. but lost importantly, remorse and the power of forgiveness and second chances. The power of love for spouse, biological family members and the families one creates from friendships. Alexis Harrington has become one of my favorite authors.

Not quite a 5

If you have read or listened to the other books in this series then you pretty much know what to expect. Though the story kept me interested I felt any twist and turns were very short lived. Loved the narrator. The series as a whole is great.
