Some memories are best forgotten…
The Wyoming Territory is rife with lawlessness and disorder, something Annie Ledbetter and her parents discover when their wagon train is robbed. Seven years later, Annie settles into her lifelong dream as a teacher in the small town of Willow Falls. When she meets handsome rancher Caleb Eliason through a humorous misunderstanding, she is quickly drawn to his kind heart and charming smile.
Former outlaw Caleb Eliason embraces his chance at a fresh start. Gone are the days of robbing stagecoaches and wagon trains. When he falls in love with the new Willow Falls teacher, he doesn’t realize they’ve met before—under much different circumstances. When his past comes to light, will it put the growing love between them at risk?
Can forgiveness and redemption heal two broken hearts or will the past keep them from sharing a future?

This was a sweet romance and a fairly quick read. The story had a great premise and I could tell the author put a lot of attention into the detail of their writing. Two things stuck out to me though that really hindered my ability to get into the story. I’m quite sure it was in hopes of creating likable characters, but their flaws (specifically Caleb) lacked any real depth when their thoughts always seemed to be pure and any bad choices weren’t really choices at all. The other piece was the dialogue. It was too wordy and proper for natural conversations. It was still an enjoyable read though, and I did like the characters. I’d recommend it to those who enjoy lighter reads.
