Trevor is the rescuer on the mountain. He has a need to protect and guard. Shaped by his past, he struggles to be more. He is the town of Redford's angel and he quickly becomes an angel for Natalie.
Natalie is new to the town of Redford, she is a sculptor looking for her place. Branded a "freak" by her sister-in-law, she struggles with an eidectic memory that seeks an outlet in clay. She quickly finds she's not the only one who needs friends, nor is she the only one that has problems.
The story begins with Trevor and his friend Whit tracking a pair of lost hikers. They are quickly side tracked when a mountain lion runs off with a toddler. They manage to rescue the toddler and find the hikers. In the process, it makes the news nation wide and attracts the unwanted attention from another 'admirer'.
Trevor learns of Natalie's (dis)ability and his need to protect/guard kick in. Along the way, he and Natalie find ways to support and help each other. Two beautiful souls that are put through the trials from each other as well as the unwanted.
A wonderful read, the story is very well written. It is a psychological thriller and romance intertwined that watches the characters grow into their own beliefs. With the antagonist using Paradise Lost to relate to, it adds an extra dimension to the story.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
