This is such a moving story.
Scott Parrish had a dreadful childhood, never appreciated in his own right by his parents who certainly didn’t deserve to have him in their lives. The only way he could get attention was by playing up and getting into trouble . . . . until he met Sage Highwater. She’s the youngest sibling with four older brothers and she’s also experienced losing those she’s loved but she’s always been loved and recognises what is happening in Scott’s life, supporting him, listening and caring – things that he’s known no one else to do. Whilst the rest of Last Stand have written him off, he’s given an opportunity to escape – and he takes it. Now he’s returning for his older brother’s funeral. Will everyone still regard him as a troublemaker? How will Sage react? Will his parents acknowledge his service or still denigrate him?
There are so many threads running through this emotive page turner – skilfully interwoven creating a colourful tapestry bringing the community, events and dramas vividly into life. I found it an enthralling read, a story in which it is so easy to empathise with both Scott and Sage. It is definitely a favourite of mine and one that I have no hesitation in highly recommending. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series and other books by this author.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.
The spark is still there… and brighter than ever
Cowgirl Sage Highwater had some tough times growing up: she was the only girl in a family of five, and the youngest to boot. She lost her amazing father and her closest sibling on the same day. And two years later, the boy she loved down to her soul left her behind without a word.
Growing up, Scott Parrish had been the talk of Last Stand, Texas, and never in a good way. At odds with his family, he’d constantly courted trouble. No one seemed to care or understand him, except Sage. At seventeen he’d been given a chance to make something of his life. He’d seized it, but at the expense of leaving the girl he loved. Ten years later he’s back, but not to stay.
Is a few days enough for even a determined cowgirl to convince the bad boy-turned-hero to finally give their love a chance in the hometown he’s hated for years?
