Widow Rachel Boyd struggles to keep her ranch afloat and provide for her two young sons, though some days it feels as though her efforts are sabotaged at every turn. When her cattle come down with disease and her sons’ lives are endangered, she must turn to Rand Brookston, Timber Ridge’s physician and reluctant veterinarian. While Rachel appreciates his help, she squelches any feelings she might have for Rand–her own father was a doctor and his patients always took priority over his family. Rachel refuses to repeat the mistakes her mother made. But when she’s courted by a wealthy client of the local resort, she faces a choice: self-sufficiency and security or the risk inherent in the deepest of loves.

WITHIN MY HEART by Tamera Alexander is an inspirational historical romance/fiction set in 1877 Timber Ridge, Colorado, Rocky Mountains. It is the third in the Timber Ridge Reflections but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with details, depth, fast paced and page turner from beginning to end. It has romance, trust,forgiveness, faith, tenderness, love, lost, struggles, broken hearts, courage, fear, and second chances. The characters and their story is heartwretching, heartwarming and down right amazing in their struggles to survive the harsh lands, keep their faith, and become a family in the Colorado mountains. Through hardships, struggles, sadness, and healing they continue to keep their faith.This is a wonderful conclusion to Timber Ridge Reflections. (Book One,From A Distance, and Book Two, Beyond This Moment).I would highly recommend this book. Once again, Tamera Alexander has delivered a tender amazing story of love, faith, family, belonging with vivid characters and landscape. This is a keeper and a must have. This book was received from the publisher for the purpose of review and details can be found at Bethany House Publishers.
