Little Big Heart by Dolores J. Wilson

Popular author Dolores J Wilson has re-released one of my favorite books of hers, Little Big Heart.  It is a warm tale of love and healing.  The course of love never runs smoothly, at least not in a captivating story.  And this one is no exception.  There are obstacles, seemingly too high to climb, that must be hurdled before the hero and heroine can be together.  It is a vibrant journey of a read.
Ms. Wilson skillfully maneuvers through the plot which deals with the distant past and contemporary times.  She has a wonderful understanding of human behavior and uses it to make her characters come vividly alive.  You will relate to these people, laugh with them, and cry with them.  This is one of those stories that stay with you long after you close the book, sighing with satisfaction.

It is currently available in ebook form and due to come out in paper copy soon from Salt Run Publishing.  I'll post a note when the paper copies are available.
If you haven't discovered Ms. Wilson's work, you are in for a treat.  This one is rated four stars.
Widowed neurologist Dr. Daniel Lucas has a comatose Jane Doe patient. The only thing he knows about her is that she was badly beaten by someone and left for dead. And that he is strangely, inexplicably drawn to her. So drawn, he allows his young son to sit by the woman's bedside and relate stories of the old west once told to him by his deceased mother.
The abandoned wife of an abusive husband, Cassie struggles to maintain the small Montana ranch she and her young son call home. When drifter Daniel Lucas comes by she hires him on, grateful for both his physical labor and the support he lends against a greedy neighbor who wants her land. And although she is still legally bound to the man who deserted her and her son, Cassie finds a transcendent passion. A doomed passion.
Dr. Lucas' skill finally brings his Jane Doe back into the world of the living, and her secrets are revealed. Along with a brutal ex-husband who is coming back to finish the job he started. Is Cassie doomed to suffer the same fate twice? Or is love indeed strong enough to transcend time?
