Redeeming the Prodigal
Cross Family Saga, Book 1
A soiled dove at rock bottom. A mountain man broken and lonely. Can an unexpected encounter be their second chance at love?
Jo Bradford never thought she’d end up a fallen woman in a mining-town brothel.
But after running away from a family who loves her and falling into the clutches of a sinister outlaw, Jo found herself left with a devastating choice. Starvation or prostitution. After a brutal attack leaves her with an ugly scar, she’s cast out of the Parlor House, her only sanctuary from the outlaw gang she escaped from.
Gideon Cross blames himself for his pa’s disappearance.
When he decided to search for his father, he left Jo behind with hopes of returning for her. News arrived that she was missing, and Gideon was left broken-hearted. After years of grieving, he is finally ready to move on and start the family he’s always wanted, even if it isn’t with Jo.
When a twist of fate brings Jo and Gideon face to face again, can the grace of God mend their broken pieces and lead them to reclaim love or will their past failures be too much to overcome?
This gripping saga, full of heart-pounding adventure, will take you on an emotional journey of love and redemption in the majestic Rocky Mountains.
