"The story unfolds in rich origami layers of revelation and connection as Bryce and those around her confront their losses, the impact of grief, a historic family ranch's threats, and the arrival of a stranger who poses yet more issues at a vulnerable time in the family's world.
__Midwest Book Review

Guided by a profound quote that echoes through the Pioneer Ranch family, "There are three layers to a moment-your experience, your awareness of the experience, and your interpretation of it," Bryce must reinterpret her past as the family chooses their true legacy. Are they the historic ranch they fought so hard to save or are they the "blood and paint" they'd become?

An accomplished showjumper and veterinarian, Bryce is haunted by the loss of her brother, who'd tormented her. She strives to reconcile her grieving parents as their historic ranch faces existential threats, just when a shocking stranger arrives, resurrecting nightmares. Can he compel her to confront her demons, fulfill her potential, and repair her relationship with her father? Her marriage is buckling under the weight of mounting problems, pushing costly solutions. And a new man who holds the keys to the kingdom is determined to change her life. Might he succeed?

The Three Layers of a Moment is an absorbing, thought-provoking feel-good drama that explores love, transformation, holding oneself accountable, and the intricate play between past, present, and future. Bryce must balance on a razor's edge, as the family's unbreakable bonds are tested beyond measure. Will they allow the weight of the past to define them, or will they define themselves?

Each book in The Pioneer Ranch Saga can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the larger series.
