Pewter skies, weary miles.
Crisp mornings, trail dust.
Starlit nights, chilling streams.
Campfires and the aroma of bacon cooking.
Hot coffee made to sustain a weary traveler.
Big skies and wide horizons.
It's all here in The Heart's Pursuit.
My all time favorite Robin Lee Hatcher novel will probably be A Promise Kept- the story of a woman and her family being reunited and her joy being restored- but I was sure eager to read this new one as well! The Heart's Pursuit is a Western, with a twist.
Bounty Hunter Jared Newman, meet Miss Silver Matlock. Time for the two of you to hit the trail.
She's looking for a betrayer and a thief, the man who jilted her and robbed her family. He's seeking a face that he pictures in his nightmares.
At surface level, they're hunting for stolen money and revenge, but that may not be what they really desire. Could a long journey and unexpected encounters along the way show them something else entirely? Something that's in their hearts and only reached by moving forward, not back?
This story opens up a Pandora's share of questions! What is justice, what is vengeance? What are we really thirsting for- closure on the past or proof of hope for tomorrow? Where is that Love that makes all things new?
