"The Betrayal" by Robin Lee Hatcher

The latest historical romance from award-winning author Robin Lee Hatcher and the second book in the Where the Heart Lives series, Betrayal will take readers to the high desert of western Wyoming, through the crags of the Rocky Mountains, and into the hearts of two seekers learning to trust God's love no matter the circumstances.

It's the turn of the twentieth century and drifter Hugh Brennan is a man well acquainted with betrayal. Hugh finds himself drawn to the attractive widow, Julia, yet when he looks into her eyes, he recognizes the same hurt that haunts him.
Julia Grace has little reason to trust men, but she's going to have to trust someone if she's to keep her ranch from the clutches of her dead husband's half-brother. Is it possible God had a hand in bringing Hugh to her door?

Robin Lee Hatcher's latest romance is not just a fluffy read.  Julia Grace has a tough row to hoe, and none of her options look good: should she give in to the threats for her land and sell out, losing everything, or should she trust her new hand Hugh and risk her heart?
Most of us have been heart in some sort of relationship at one time or another, and it's never easy to take a chance and reach out again.  Hatcher's realistic look at the struggle to trust again can teach a lesson to all of us.  
Julia Grace isn't the only honest person in Betrayal's cast of characters.  Hugh hasn't had it easy, either, and Julia Grace has some good neighbors.  This team worked together well and added a lighthearted edge to the story.  
Betrayal is a special book because at the root of it all, this story is about overcoming the odds.  Each character is written with kindness, love, and grace, for a seasoned story that's full of heart.  
I received a free copy of Betrayal in exchange for an honest review.
