"This is a thoughtful and compelling story of burgeoning romance between people who're past the first flush of youth.

  I found it so refreshing to read a story that tackles this subject in a sensitive, realistic, 

  but still romantic style." Allie

A novel inspired by the works of Jane Austen

Cathryn McNeil wants to believe in happily-ever-after, Jane Austen style. But a twice-divorced children's therapist stuck in a small prairie town is an unlikely heroine. She has resigned herself to the company of her animals and fictional heroes until she meets polo player Jack Stone at a funeral. Their mutual love of horses sparks hope, but he acts more scoundrel than hero.


With her heart still buried in a graveyard of loss, it seems too late for adventure—or love.

When fate offers a second chance, can she conquer the challenges of nature and human folly

to free herself from the past? Or has she misread too many novels?

If a lady, of any age, is to become a heroine, something surely must occur to send adventure—and a hero—her way …

A story of seasoned romance, horseback adventure, friendship, and family drama rolled into one

life-changing journey.
