about this item
Beloved bestseller Sandra Brown continues to expand her literary repertoire by conjuring Depression-era Texas for this sweeping historical romance. As the head of a boarding house, single mother Ella Barron spends her time seeing to the needs of strangers first, her troubled son Solly second, and herself a distant third. When a visitor named David Rainwater arrives in search of lodgings, the hard times compel Ella to admit him against her better judgment, and the repercussions of her decision begun to ripple through the community. As farms get foreclosed, tempers flare and a cold-hearted local named Conrad Ellis assumes the duties of law enforcement, which gives him control of the town. Suddenly, Ella's only ally may be the man who many blame for starting the trouble--David Rainwater.
A romantic historical novel from bestselling thriller-master Sandra Brown, about an independent woman who runs a boarding house in Dust Bowl Texas.
