In this heartfelt and poignant follow-up to Earlene Fowler's national bestseller, The Saddlemaker's Wife , Ruby McGavin returns to the small town of Cardinal, California, where a year ago she brought her husband's ashes back to his family's ranch, and discovered safety, peace, and a love...

Ruby never thought she'd return to Cardinal, but she's hoping the place and people who gave her so much can give her brother Nash--who's been drowning in drink in Nashville--the fresh start he so desperately needs.

Saddlemaker Lucas McGavin is thrilled that Ruby has come back. He hasn't given up on his love for her, despite the awkward fact that she is his brother's widow, and he's well aware that this may be his last chance to win Ruby's heart. When Nash starts drinking again and ends up in a devastating accident, Ruby decides she must find her estranged mother to help with an intervention. Two states away, Etta Walker harbors a horrible secret that keeps her from reconnecting with the children she deserted so many years ago.

As they struggle with the present and confront the past, Ruby, Lucas, and Etta learn the power of forgiveness...and reach for a new future filled with hope, grace, and love.
