Life isn’t fair, which is the reason young widow Bryanna Brennon has trouble with it. the heroine of Cheyenne Sunrise finds it hard to make peace with the injustices she sees. Why did her mother and younger brother have to die on the journey from Ireland? Surely her father, who had dreamed of a better life in America, shouldn’t have had to settle the remainder of his family in the slums of Manhattan. And Ian—after helping her escape poverty, why had he changed into someone capable of using his fists on a woman? She’d watched it all unfold, suffered every sorrow, and come away with a question burning within her.
She’d learned at her mother’s knee that God is good. Why then would He allow the innocent to suffer?
On a wagon train traveling into the vast American West, Bry badly needs to believe that God cares what becomes of her. Maybe that’s why she clings to her friend, Maisey’s faith, resenting any sign it might waver. Maisey has every reason to turn her back on God. The fact that she doesn’t gives Bry hope.
Drawn despite herself to Nick Laramie, the half-Cheyenne trail guide, Bry yearns to be in his arms. Yet, making herself vulnerable to a man again isn’t part of her plan. She wants to start a new life on her brother’s ranch in Montana Territory, and her attraction to Nick presents an obstacle she’s determined to overcome. Nick seems to feel the same about her, which isn’t fair. The handsome trail guide’s efforts to avoid her only make him harder to ignore.
Unexpected events force Bry to rely on Nick for life itself. Can she also trust him with her heart? Bry’s journey carries her through the pages of Cheyenne Sunrise to a resolution that answers her every question.
