By Eric C. Taylor
Clay Kurtz, a retired United States Marshal and widower, decides to become a full-time rancher on his inherited land. It is a dream fulfilled, but his loneliness sometimes overwhelms him.
One day while out riding his horse in a nearby valley, he meets a mysterious, older woman named Lauren, who eventually asks him a favor that will change his life forever. Lauren requests that Clay go to San Francisco, find her long-lost niece, Laurellen, and tell her about an inheritance she knows nothing of. He must also make sure she comes back to Wyoming with him.
Driven by an unexpected sense of loyalty to Lauren, Clay arrives in San Francisco and soon realizes that there were a lot more forces at work in his intersecting path with Laurellen. Things beyond his control begin to happen, things that shape the future for Clay and everyone around him.
Can Clay get the quiet retirement he wants? Will he ever find out the truth behind Lauren?
