Comes The Winter (Sawtooth Range)

Adult; Romance; (Market)

Avalanches, isolation and snow blindness were stark realities for those daring to remain in Idaho’s Sawtooth Range through the harsh winter months. For city dweller, Lena Sommer, the warnings seemed exaggerated.

In the fall of 1886, Lena leaves behind a life fraught with disappointments and loss only to arrive in Sawtooth City and find the man she’d pledged to marry has been killed. To return east is unthinkable; to stay is ill-advised, but she resolves to remain and manage the man’s lodging house despite the warnings. More than her stubborn nature influences her decision. From her first glimpse of this mountain valley, she falls captive to its wild beauty. Feeling she has at last found a hearth to call her own, she eagerly puts down roots. Sharing her love of literature with her lodgers before a warming fire, she builds a family of lonesome souls, where dreams awaken.

However, one man stands apart, disturbing her peace with ominous warnings to leave before winter comes. Evan Hartmann knows from personal loss that winter snows bring to these mountains both unimaginable beauty and death. He is also a man conflicted, because as much as he’d like for Lena to leave the mountains, his heart longs for her to stay.

 

Reviews
Lena Sommer and Evan Hartmann are both grieving lost loved ones when they meet in 1886 Sawtooth City, Idaho, in this pitch-perfect third Sawtooth Range historical (after High Valley Promise). Mail-order bride Lena hopes to leave tragedy behind when she travels west, but when she arrives in Sawtooth City, she learns that her hoped-for husband, Mr. Nash, has died. When Lena decides to stay and run Nash’s boarding house, his boarders—including fellow mail-order bride Jessie Leach, whom Lena befriends—agree to help her. Only quiet loner Evan disagrees, and he warns Lena that she should leave soon, before winter arrives. The two butt heads, but Lena is determined to learn the ways of life in Sawtooth and find a connection with Evan, who intrigues her even as he pushes her away. Where loss has driven Lena to fierce, near reckless independence, it leads Evan to caution. Rich descriptions and entertaining characters bring to life the beauty and struggle of life in the 19th-century West. This cozy tale grounded in the everyday will surely delight historical romance fans. (BookLife)
