Could a Twist of Fate Heal a Broken Heart...?
Ben Kohl rode into Copper Creek amid the aftermath of scandal and disillusionment in the fall of 1880. Michael Randolph’s passing that summer had sparked an epidemic of doubt in Copper Creek that perhaps all was not as wholesome or honest as it seemed. But remedying this perception was not Ben Kohl’s aim. Rather, he intended to seek out the keeper of Michael Randolph’s darkest secret to release an even more shocking truth on the unsuspecting populace.
That truth had been Olivia Kohl’s private heartache for more than twenty years. Abandoned by her husband just months after they’d taken their vows, she had subsequently lost their only child at birth. She had finally begun to enjoy life again when her younger brother, Henry, accepted his first assignment as pastor for the Copper Creek church. But when Ben claims the impossibility of being her son, all the sorrow of her traumatic past threatens to destroy her happiness once more.
He is adamant that Olivia’s aunt sent him to find her and explain the deception she perpetrated to keep them apart. But Ben’s desire to know more about his father sparks a storm of emotion leading to dangerous complications when he begins to show romantic interest in Michael’s grieving daughter, Rachel.
Forced to choose between telling the truth or preserving a beloved memory, Olivia plans to make a brave confession. But when a deadly subterfuge, designed to exact revenge on all of Copper Creek, ignites a catastrophe no one could have foreseen, it will take a twist of fate to mend more than one broken heart.
The Burden of Secrets Could Cost Her More Than Her Heart...
Jane Randolph’s residence in Copper Creek had not been long enough to know how many secrets were concealed behind its friendly doors or beneath its shimmering namesake. But during the summer of 1880, the arrival of two strangers begins to unravel the mystery of a hidden copper mine that had shrouded the town in legend for decades. Eager to dismiss the news as gossip, Jane’s encounters with the dashing architect, Thomas Mason and the town’s inscrutable new minister, Henry Kohl, begin to make her suspect there may be substance to the rumors.
One Memory That Couldn’t Be Forgotten or Forgiven...
The winter of 1880 had closed in on the town of Copper Creek, blanketing the Missouri countryside in a sparkling expanse of white. The stillness of the season afforded Ruth Randolph the opportunity to reflect on the drastic upheaval in her life since her husband's death that summer. Infidelity, intrigue, deception and mistaken identity had all been revealed in the light of truth. Yet, Ruth couldn't have been happier. After a long period of grief, she had finally made peace with the past. But when a letter arrives from her estranged father, Caleb Vance, a grudge left unresolved for more than twenty years forces Ruth to relive the darkest hour of her youth.
Caught at a Crossroads Between Truth and Lies...
