Refuge: A Mountain Ranch Novel By Willa J Brand


Taylor is a mother on the run from an abusive husband, searching for a safe place for she and her young son. Convinced that her possessive spouse is hunting them, she is paranoid, exhausted and virtually penniless. Finding herself stranded in rural Montana, she is taken in by a couple who help her not knowing her past, and she is able to find work on their ranch.

She intends on staying only long enough to save the money needed to move on to a large city where she believes they will be safer. But as time passes friendships develop, as does a love interest, and Taylor struggles to hold on to her secrets. Inevitably, her past catches up with her and her worst fears will become reality.

My Thoughts:

I couldn’t wait to get started reading this book and read it in a day, it was perfect for me as it is like my dream job to work on a ranch with horses. I am a big animal lover and love horses, I use to ride them and now it is something I am really wanting to do again after reading this book. The story is about Taylor who is trying to get away from her husband that is abusive, she has a young son and needs to get as far away from her cruel husband as she can, I really felt for her, they end up on a ranch and it’s clear she loves it, she has lovely people around her, romance may be on the card for her, though she has secrets and just when things are settled something happens that turns her world to shreds. This is a sensitive topic that is written about and the author has done a brilliant job keeping it real but sensitively. What I learnt about this book is that you can run but you can’t hide.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
