The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them -- her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage -- and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love, and their belief that God can work through every circumstance, survive?

I love, love, love the characters in this book. Becky Wade has a knack for taking fictional characters and making their lives, emotions, feelings, actions and reactions so real. I love that her characters spoke and acted like real people. They listened to country music, they said things they shouldn't, they acted so normal. Meg is such a sweetheart. I liked her gentleness but I also liked her gumption. She has to deal with real problems, like panic attacks, that many people shrug off as not serious. Bo Parker is a perfect gentleman and reminds me a lot of my husband. He is kind, good, sweet, but fiercely protective of those he loves.
The message of the story, once Bo and Meg grasped it, resonated deep in me. Even when you don't feel like He is, God is with you, leading you down the path He wants you to go. Our job, as Christians, is to wait on the Lord, trust in Him, and let Him lead us. It's so hard to do, especially when you can't see what's up ahead, but God knows.
Overall, I loved this story and look forward to reading more in the Porter Family series.
