Past her prime? Or just getting started?
At 56, Silver Fellowes was living her dream. A great apartment, a decent social life, and a career she loved as a high-powered executive with an elite PR firm.
. . . until the day a 20-something bombshell replaced her.
She finds refuge on her late father's abandoned ranch, some twenty miles west of Diamond Gulch, Texas. Under the starlit Texas sky, she struggles to regain the confidence she once possessed.
Time heals the emotional bruising, but she fights the restless spirit urging her to rejoin the human race.
Ash Ericcson—tall, blue-eyed, and younger than Silver—is captivated by her ageless beauty.
Together with eclectic friends friends Rosalee and Smokes, Ash watches Silver take on a crooked deputy sheriff who is trying to steal her ranch.
Patty Wiseman will have you cheering for the spirit of this woman who discovers that the power of age and experience always has the upper hand.
"The characters in this fascinating mystery / romance come to life on the pages as Mrs. Wiseman gives each of them a part to play. I love the way Mrs. Wiseman wove the characters into the plot, letting some of them heal with Silver. I recommend this for everyone who enjoys mystery and romance with well-defined, interesting characters who overcome past problems and hardships."
"This is a tale about a mature woman tackling one of life’s unavoidable terms…getting older. Silver, (pretty name and great for the story) will realize her true worth is not in the circumstances of what society throws at her. I admired this strong woman’s sense of adventure and faith in the unknown. I also loved her sidekick, a mule she buys named Joey; a sweet touch to the tale. A wonderful read with a solid moral of “you can’t keep a strong woman down no matter what life throws at her.” It will lift your spirits and encourage you to press on when your path grows dim and discouraging. Great job, author Patty Wiseman."
"I believe there are millions of women out in the world who will be able to relate to Silver Fellowes’ story. I should know because I’m one of them. Once a corporate high-flyer, confident, powerful, and in control—that is until Silver (and I) hit our fifties and for different reasons our lives fell apart. This dealt a huge blow to our self-confidence and we came away in shock, not quite knowing how to relate to such sudden and huge changes. Although I live in a different country and my experience has been different to Silver’s I feel as if I’ve been on a journey with her in this wonderful novel written by Patty Wiseman."
"A great read with a group of strong, lovable characters whose stories resonate to so many in today's world, especially the world of an older professional woman who has put true love at bay for her career for so long. As usual, Patty doesn't disappoint the reader with plot twists and unpredictable surprises. I was riveted to the screen to finish the story. Now that I have, I hope there is a sequel in the making. I'm willing to bet Silver and the people of Diamond Gulch have more tales to tell!"
