Chet Leonard’s life was forever changed when his 17-year-old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.
Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious 15-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King’s Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of becoming involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.
When octogenarian Anna McKenna returns to King’s Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet may discover that true love has no end.

While part of the book (Chet and Kimberly) is very predictable.... the other part... the part that surrounds Anna McKenna (aka Nana Anna) is not so predictable. This is a sweet tale of three lives that are entangled by life circumstances.
Robin's ability to tell the story of two, almost three, different love stories ... intertwined and separate-- is amazing! They are all beautiful stories in their own right. Robin draws you in to the modern tale with the struggle of Chet and his two sons who are just trying to eek out a living on their ranch. Kimberly is reeling and trying to find her way after her husband dies and leaves her deep in debt and trying to adjust to a new way of life while her teenage daughter deals with the upheaval in a rebellious teenage way. And then there's Anna. Anna is the heart of the story and has such a beautiful background filled with sorrow, acceptance, family, love and hope. Her story alone is worth this read!!
This is the first book in The King's Meadow Romance series and I am looking forward to the books to come!
