Welcome to Scrawl! Reston's indie bookstore.
This is book number 1 in the Silver Springs series.
Bestselling author Brenda Novak welcomes readers to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner.
The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch's owner, that she is really her daughter? Cora's not sure she can do that, not unless she is confident that the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner-Aiyana's adopted son and ranch manager-that decision becomes even more difficult.
Although Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora, he has always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there's something about the ranch's newest employee that isn't exactly as it seems. But if the feelings she awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, she might be just what he has long been waiting for.
