Romance slowly blossoms between the town’s new schoolteacher and the son of her host family in Forgotten Memories by Penny Zeller, but the future Annie and Caleb hope for is in peril when the circumstances of their first meeting comes to light.
Reading this first in series book, it was a delight to find that Caleb is the son of the couple from the prequel novella, Love’s New Beginnings, and that the Eliason’s had adopted him when he gave up the life of an outlaw. Though not, of course, until after meeting Annie during a final, fateful robbery.
This heartwarming story of hope, love, and forgiveness shows that there are still struggles even after becoming a new person in Christ. Annie and Caleb’s story is a treat for the Historical Christian Romance reader. It also introduces the younger Eliason siblings that will be getting their own stories – and I particularly anticipate the erudite Charlotte’s romance as the thought of holding his hand, in Forgotten Memories, makes her shudder. Recommended.

Some memories are best forgotten…
The Wyoming Territory is rife with lawlessness and disorder, something Annie Ledbetter and her parents discover when their wagon train is robbed. Seven years later, Annie settles into her lifelong dream as a teacher in the small town of Willow Falls. When she meets handsome rancher Caleb Eliason through a humorous misunderstanding, she is quickly drawn to his kind heart and charming smile.
Former outlaw Caleb Eliason embraces his chance at a fresh start. Gone are the days of robbing stagecoaches and wagon trains. When he falls in love with the new Willow Falls teacher, he doesn’t realize they’ve met before—under much different circumstances. When his past comes to light, will it put the growing love between them at risk?
Can forgiveness and redemption heal two broken hearts or will the past keep them from sharing a future?
