New York Times best-selling author Brenda Novak welcomes listeners to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner!
The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch's owner, that she's really her daughter? Cora's not sure she can do that, not unless she's confident the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner - Aiyana's adopted son and ranch manager - that decision becomes even more difficult.
Although Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora, he's always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there's something about the ranch's newest employee that isn't exactly as it seems. But if the feelings she awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, she might be just what he's long been waiting for.

This was such a poignant story. I don't often listen to this type of story, so it's hard to quantify.
I can't tell you why my favorite character got the designation without giving away a lot of the story. Suffice it to say, they were a secondary character who played a pivotal role in Cora's life.
The epilogue. I cried so hard, and felt so good, it's hard to explain!
I tried! I really did! I kept getting distracted! I finished it at 10 pm, the day after release day.
If you've ever felt a kinship with adoptive kids, or ever wanted to find your birth parents, you should read this book. I was the biological child of both of my parents, yet this book still totally slayed me! I loved the story, loved the voice-actress (who is easily a top ten in my world), and loved all of the back story Novak provided on her website.
Great read, good subject matter!
