From the back cover: Nell Holstrom wanted no part of her grandfather’s barren gold mine that had taken the lives of her mother, father, and younger brother; even if there may still be hidden wealth inside. Instead, she went to Denver and took a job as housekeeper at the old Stone Hill Inn.
Asa Stone was barely more than a boy when his father dragged him and his brothers to fight with Colonel John Chivington. But Asa refused to participate in the raid on the peaceful Cheyenne and Arapahoe; and when the smoke cleared, his father and brother lay among the slaughtered. Besieged by guilt, Asa wandered the West for years before returning to Denver to rebuild the old inn he’d inherited.
Together, Nell and Asa work hard to restore Stone Hill. But when disaster hits the inn, Asa retreats into despair and Nell is forced to return to her family’s mine. Asa faces the hard fact: He’ll never be the man Nell deserves. Can he overcome the dark secrets of his past? And will Nell still love him when she learns the truth?
Asa Stone owns the old Stone Hill Inn. Nell answers the ad Asa places for a housekeeper. Together they are working to build the Inn back to its former glory. Just like in real life there are ups and downs so these two experience ups and downs as well. Here is the situation: both of them have trauma, both of them have secrets. Both of them need to have a healing if they are ever going to be able to move on or even finish the project on the Inn. You might not think it but this is a really interesting story filled with twists and turns you just do not see coming. Ms. Lough has managed to weave the romance between Asa and Nell in such a way that it just captivates you. She makes you care for all the characters, secondary or not, and their journey. I recommend that you don’t start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep.
