Hidden Trails by Bonnie R. Paulson
This is a tearjerker from start to finish. Drake is resentful, frustrated and unsure of how to get what he has always wanted, namely Stefanie. Stefanie is stubborn, impulsive and naive. Drake struggles to give both Stefanie and Emma what they need, but neither is inclined to take it. Stefanie is determined to save her home at any cost, but her pride prevents her from accepting Drakes help. They have always been in love with each other, but neither said anything, and are still afraid to. But Drake is a sweet guy who gradually wins Stefanie over. The twist at the end of the book was dramatic and unexpected. I am emotionally invested in this family and look forward to happier times.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
