During the Battle of the Wilderness, Union Major Chase Whitlaw shoots a Rebel soldier, just as they're both cut down by a terrible explosion. As the Reb lies dying, he begs Whitlaw to return a locket to his wife, Libby, in New Mexico and tell her he loves her.

Chase half-heartedly agrees, until Libby's picture in the locket becomes his touchstone, helping him to survive his injuries.

In New Mexico, Chase finds Libby in desperate straits and offers help instead of truth.

Libby's horse ranch, plagued by unexplained accidents, is failing. Until the arrival of the war-scarred stranger, a neighbor's unwelcome offer of marriage was the only way to save her son's inheritance.

But now, she has Chase. Working side-by-side, their passion becomes undeniable until Chase's truth is revealed.

Now, Libby must decide: forgive or say goodbye forever.

Based on a true story and written by Hannah Howe, author of the Amazon #1 Sam Smith Mystery Series, Saving Grace, "the courtroom drama of the year."The Western Mail2 August 1876Sensation in the Charles Petrie Case!Readers may recall that a young banker, by name Mr Charles Petrie, with every opportunity of succeeding in his profession, and commanding a not illiberal income, returned home after riding his horse to dine with his wife, Grace, and her companion Mrs Quinn. During and after dinner he had nothing to excite him save the receipt of a letter which somewhat annoyed him, and that his wife consumed rather more wine than he considered to be good for her health. Immediately after retiring to his room he was seized with symptoms of irritant poisoning, and despite every effort made on his behalf, he succumbed to its effects. An inquest was held, which vexed the minds of the Coroner's jury to a degree without precedent in Coroners' Inquest Law, and an open verdict was returned. However, the matter will not rest there, for after questions in Parliament, a second inquest has been called under suspicion that Mr Charles Petrie was murdered.* * *Who poisoned Charles Petrie? Dr James Collymore, a man familiar with poisons, a man harbouring a dark secret that, if exposed, would ruin his career; Florrie, the maid who supplied Charles with his bedtime drink; Bert Kemp, a disgruntled groom, who used poisons in his work, who four months previously had predicted Charles' dying day; Mrs Jennet Quinn, a lady's companion with a deep knowledge of poisons, and a deep fear of dismissal; or Grace Petrie, Charles' wife of four months, a woman with a scandalous past, a woman shunned by polite society.With crowds flocking to the courtroom and the shadow of suspicion falling upon Grace in the shape of the hangman's noose, could dashing young advocate, Daniel Morgan, save her?
