About The Author


 Passionate might best describe Liz Tolsma. She loves writing, research, and editing. Her passion shone through in her first novel which was a double award finalist. On any given day, you might find her pulling weeds in her perennial garden, walking her hyperactive dog, or curled up with a good book. Nothing means more to her than her family. She’s married her high-school sweetheart twenty-eight years ago. Get her talking about international adoption, and you might never get her to stop. She and her husband adopted three children, including a son who is a U.S. Marine, and two daughters.

My Review


 

A time split read, stretching from the 1830's to present time! Centered around a cat's eye ring, with a mysterious engraving.

We soon learn how this ring brings this read together, and we are there for the journey. The ring belong to two strong Christian women, Josie and Kayleigh, women who treasure this ring, but loose a lot in the process.

This story is set in Texas and we are with the brave souls who fought for independence, "Remember The Alamo", along with a young woman with a stalker, and the ring.

The author gives us some sweet romance along with a deep mystery that kept me page turning!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
