Betrayal Book Review
Betrayal by Robin Lee Hatcher is a historical western novel set in a ranch in Wyoming. Julia Grace has had a rough past with memories that seem to creep into her mind every day. Being a widow with a ranch and cattle to take care of hasn't been easy for her over the winter and the cattle will need to be moved.
Hugh Brennan happens along Sage-hen ranch in need of rest and time for his horse to heal. Hugh offers to help around the ranch in exchange for food and a place to sleep at night. Julia takes him up on the offer and they end up driving the cattle after a few mishaps. That isn't where the story ends as someone is trying to take Julia's ranch, no matter what the cost.
This novel is actually the second in a series the first called Belonging which is about Hugh's sister. I hadn't read Belonging and Betrayal can be read as it's own novel. Hatcher also has a new book to the series planned called Beloved which follows the life of Hugh's other sister.
I liked how the viewpoint in the story started with Hugh and his strong faith in the Lord. This isn't my favorite book written by Robin Lee Hatcher but it is still a sweet story.
"I received this book for free from Zondervan Publishing through their Booksneeze program. This is my honest opinion of the book."
