The Letter Left (Healing Hearts Ranch #1), by Angela Ford (author), Carly Kincaid (narrator)

Books to Go Now, July 2020

Raine Willows grew up with her grandfather, Jack Willows, who taught her to be kind and generous, and to help others. At eighteen, she left his Montana farm for college, the big city, and a career in nursing. That also meant leaving Luke Daniels, her first love, who joined the army, and served overseas in some major combat zones.

Seven years later, Jack Willows has died, and Raine is back for his funeral, believing that the farm was sold a few years ago. Instead, she finds that her grandfather never sold it, but left it to her--and Luke, having left the army after a disastrous mission in which he lost all but one other member of his unit, has been living there, taking care of Jack.

What follows is a very sweet short story about two people finding each other again, and finding their way forward into a new dream and a new life. It's gentle, positive, and upbeat, while acknowledging the bad in the world, some of which these two characters have in their own pasts.

I won't claim this is great literature, but it was a very good thing to listen to, while I was dealing with quite a few frustrations in my own life.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
