One Memory That Couldn't be Forgotten or Forgiven...
The winter of 1880 had closed in on the town of Copper Creek, blanketing the Missouri countryside in a sparkling expanse of white. The stillness of the season afforded Ruth Randolph the opportunity to reflect on the drastic upheaval in her life since her husband's passing that summer. But then, nothing much in Copper Creek had remained the same, since more than one secret had been exposed because of Michael Randolph's death.
Infidelity, intrigue, deception and mistaken identity had all been revealed in the light of truth. Yet, Ruth couldn't have been happier. After a long period of grief, she had finally made peace with the past. But when a letter arrives from her estranged father, Caleb Vance, a grudge left unresolved for more than twenty years forces Ruth to relive the darkest hour of her youth.
Once caught between an arranged marriage and a passionate romance, Ruth made her choice at the point of a gun and nearly died for defying her father's will. Since that day, nothing but animosity had existed between them. Determined she could never forget her father's injustice or forgive his cruelty, Ruth's initial rejection of his attempts at reconciliation unwittingly draw her into his deadly struggle for revenge with the man responsible for their rift.
Coming to realize how grossly mistaken she's been, Ruth's desperate attempt to spare her father and save the town from financial ruin leaves her life hanging in the balance. As a result, the path of a single bullet from a notorious gunfighter’s pistol becomes her only hope to prevent the cruel events of the past from happening again.
The Burden of Secrets Could Cost Her More Than Her Heart...
Jane Randolph’s residence in Copper Creek had not been long enough to know how many secrets were concealed behind its friendly doors or beneath its shimmering namesake. But during the summer of 1880, the arrival of two strangers begins to unravel the mystery of a hidden copper mine that had shrouded the town in legend for decades. Eager to dismiss the news as gossip, Jane’s encounters with the dashing architect, Thomas Mason and the town’s inscrutable new minister, Henry Kohl, begin to make her suspect there may be substance to the rumors.
Could a Twist of Fate Heal a Broken Heart?
Ben Kohl rode into Copper Creek amid the aftermath of scandal and disillusionment in the fall of 1880. Michael Randolph’s passing that summer had sparked an epidemic of doubt in Copper Creek that perhaps all was not as wholesome or honest as it seemed. But remedying this perception was not Ben Kohls’s aim. Rather, he intended to seek out the keeper of Michael Randolph’s darkest secret to release an even more shocking truth on the unsuspecting populace.
Caught at a Crossroads Between Truth and Lies...
The promise of new life had taken on special significance with spring's arrival in 1881. After a hectic year full of upheaval, changes abounded in every corner of the small Missouri town of Copper Creek. New buildings, new faces and new romances were transforming the rural community plagued by scandal since rumors of a hidden copper mine became deadly last July. But all that trouble was behind them now. Or so the people of Copper Creek thought, until one balmy morning in March, the stage arrived carrying a passenger with a decidedly disturbing mission.
