A SWEEPING SAGA… AN EPIC ADVENTURE… AN ENDURING LOVE STORY. From the romance of early California’s ranchos and valleys of wild horses, to the stark beauty of New Mexico’s highlands, When the Far Hills Bloom weaves an unforgettable tale of heroism and loyalty, honor and betrayal.
Aislin Byrne harbors a powerful love for the wild, untamed lands of Rancho La Paloma. The threat of its financial ruin only strengthens her feelings and seals her resolve to save her home. But the fight to rescue the rancho will draw her into a drama rife with conflict and secret sorrow, and launch her on a desperate journey that will test her mettle…and change her life forever.
Throughout her quest, Aislin is haunted by the love of two brothers: Jamie, a natural authority figure driven to leadership and perfection; and Spence, a gifted horseman and healer who is more at home with wild horses than with people. But only one man can claim her. And it will take a daring scheme to save her beloved land before Aislin’s heart can choose…
