June 1st - 3rd

sons to tuberculosis and his wife in
childbirth, a Philadelphia patriarch sends his three living children
west in 1883 to make a new life in the clean mountain air of Colorado

with establishing a new arm of the family business-a business he
doesn't want. Readers will love The Homeward Trilogy, in which the St.
Clair siblings struggle to follow where the heavenly Father leads them.
In Breathe, Odessa arrives at a famous sanitarium seeking a
cure for the disease that killed her brothers. While Moira and Nic
establish themselves in Colorado Springs society, Dessa inches her way
back to health... and into love with a softspoken fellow patient,
rancher Bryce McAllan. When she witnesses a murder - in the very
hospital where she is recuperating - and other patients begin to die,
Dessa struggles to breathe again. She'd always expected to die young,
but now that she has a reason to live, can she hold on to her fragile
health to solve the mystery?
