Within My Heart

Within My Heart
by Tamera Alexander

From the book: Determined to fulfill her late husband's dream, Rachel Boyd struggles to keep her ranch afloat with the help of her two young sons. But some days it feels as though her every effort is sabotaged. When faced with a loss she cannot afford, she's forced to trust Rand Brookston, the one man in Timber Ridge she wishes to avoid. And with good reason. He's a physician, just like her father, which tells her everything she needs to know about him. Or so she thinks...

Dr. Rand Brookston ventured west with the dream of bringing modern medicine to the wilds of the Colorado Rockies, but the townspeople have been slow to trust him. Just as slow in coming is Rand's dream to build the town a proper clinic. When a patient's life is threatened, Rand makes a choice - one that sends ripples through the town of Timber Ridge. And through Rachel Boyd's stubborn heart.

From me: I always enjoy Tamera Alexander's novels. They are written well and the character's hold my attention, this novel was no different. I also love that, even though she writes in a series, each book can stand on it's own. You can start reading anytime you want, you won't get lost, but you will want to read the rest of the books before and after the one you picked up! Within my Heart is the third book in the Timber Ridge Reflections series and I'll definitly be reading the previous two.

Thanks to Bethany House Publishers for offering me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
