It is 1886, and the government has given the US Cavalry control of Yellowstone. For widowed hotelier Kate Tremaine, the change is a welcome one. She knows every inch of her wilderness home like the back of her hand and wants to see it protected from poachers and vandals.
Refused a guide by Congress, Lieutenant William Prescott must enlist Kate's aid to help him navigate the sprawling park and track down the troublemakers. But a secret from his past makes him wary of the tender feelings the capable and comely widow raises in him. As they work together to protect the park and stand firm through injustice and tragedy, they may just find that two wounded hearts can share one powerful love when God is in control.

"What was it about men and danger? Did they all want to die?"
Kate Tremaine has been carrying a heavy load since the untimely death of her husband; managing the Geiser Gateway Inn, deep within the heart of Yellowstone National Park, was more than a full time job, especially for a single woman. Her staff was small but loyal, and her young son helped as much as she could expect, but could the U.S. Calvary provide an extra layer of protection against poachers and hunters; those who dared to breach the law for the sake of their own profit? When a unit commander agrees to trade knowledge of the park for minor property repairs, Kate and Lieutenant William Prescott reach the deal . . . . . of a lifetime.
"Nothing Short of Wondrous", indeed. The author's obvious knowledge of Yellowstone National Park, its amazing natural resources coupled with its rich history, makes this story interesting to readers on a variety of levels. Hold your breath as you imagine seeing the park's majestic geysers, steaming springs and imposing wildlife; tread softly along with William and Kate as they dare to share deeply personal secrets; and above all, celebrate the power of God's love and forgiveness as these two unlikely partners blaze a new trail toward a life filled with second chances.
