Wyoming, 1870. When a man dies before his time, it’s usually because someone has killed him, and Finn Marshall now lives with the scars of guilt, having gunned down his friend, or so the story goes. He spends his life moving from place to place, hoping to shake off the guilt he’s encumbered with. Finn says he’s innocent. Trouble is, how to prove it?
When he visits widow Sarah Kernshaw, he isn’t prepared for the effect she still has on him. And riding out west doesn’t help, either, especially when she and her son Matty join him on the wagon train.
Sarah is delighted when she’s linked with Finn again, albeit on the dusty trail to Oregon. Even Matty dotes on him, a father figure. Falling in love with Finn Marshall is easy until he is forced to own up about what happened on that dark day… Now all she’s got to do is try and forgive him.
