About the Book:

Kat has always been a very strong person: strong-willed, strong-minded, strongly opinionated, extremely passionate, compassionate, and empathetic, and very loyal. All those attributes come into play when Kat’s mentor and grandfather dies and leaves the family ranch to her at a young age. Despite attempts by other family members to take the ranch from her, she manages to retain her ownership and watch the ranch flourish. But life for Kat hasn’t always been a matter of her getting what she wants. In fact, she harbors a deeply-kept secret less than a handful know all the details of. She will do everything in her power to keep it that way. Her college sweetheart and husband is taken from her far too soon and she returns to a relationship which can be described as nothing short of destructive for her. In an effort to avoid answering a question which continues to pop up, Kat moves to Florida to help her cousin with his company. She is introduced to a man who helps her understand there is so much more to life than work on the ranch, work on the construction company, and charity events – he reveals to Kat what a personal life can be like. Follow Kat as she uses her strength, faith, and family to make decisions which will ultimately direct the rest of her life. Watch as she moves from a life centering on the wants and needs of others to a life mor balanced between her own wants and needs and those of others.
