Heath's "Texas Trilogy" ended more than 20 years ago, and now a new generation of principals take the stage in this follow-up novella. It's been six years since Faith Leigh, daughter of Texas Glory's Dallas Leigh, has set eyes on her foster brother, but Rawley Cooper has returned from his wandering cowboy ways to help with a family crisis. Faith never forgave him for leaving her the night after they shared a passionate kiss, and she greets him at the train station with a fist to the face. They're both still secretly in love with each other, but Rawley's dark childhood makes him feel unworthy. Faith, in turn, harbors a shameful secret that she fears will make Rawley take off again. Their reunion is interspersed with cameos from the characters of the original trilogy, as well as glimpses into the changing world of small-town Texas in the early 1900s.
VERDICT Fans will welcome this novella that revisits the Leigh family decades later while enjoying the emotionally satisfying love story between the two likable main players.
