A beautiful journey of growth and love. Samantha does everything for her daughter, Audie. She is working very hard to build a life for them even though her pregnancy was unexpected. She does carry a lot of fear that she copes with by being fiercely independent to ensure she doesn't get attached. When she moves to Choteau to take a teaching position, she never expects to find a community that opens it arms and embraces her. This is very foreign to her. Jarod is stalwart, working the family ranch while dreaming of building a business to train rodeo horses. His chance encounter with Audie and Samantha suddenly has him offering to teach Audie to ride. For Jarod, he is surprised by the connection to the little girl and his attraction to Samantha. Jarod isn't looking for a relationship but finds himself wanting to spend more time with Samantha. Both of these people have past hurts that they need to deal with before they can embrace a new future. I loved the connections that are made throughout this story not just with Samantha and Jarod but how wonderful the community is represented.
