Review: THE FIRE IN EMBER by DiAnn Mills

"Award winning author DiAnn Mills masterfully tells a tale of faith and love..."

Deputy John Timmons was in the right place at the right time when he stopped the lynching of a young boy accused of being a horse thief.  He took the frightened boy to the horse’s owner and worked out an agreement to pay the owner for his aggravation then brought the ragamuffin home to the 5T ranch to work off the debt.  John soon learns that the boy, Bert, is really a petite 17 year old girl running away from her dark past.  It isn’t long before the whole Timmons family is charmed by Ember, aka Bert, especially John.

Meanwhile, the Rocky Falls area is being plagued by cattle rustlers and Ember is suspected of helping them.  John and his family want to believe in her even if she won‘t tell them what she is running from.  However, the murders and stolen cattle make the ranchers nervous and even John starts to question his trust in the woman he is beginning to love.

Award winning author DiAnn Mills masterfully tells a tale of faith and love in THE FIRE IN EMBER.  Readers met the Timmons clan in Ms. Mills’ previous book, A WOMAN CALLED SAGE, and now learn more about this loving family as they share their faith with a lost soul and help turn her life around.  This smooth flowing yarn is filled with adventure and intrigue set in the wide open spaces of Colorado.  THE FIRE IN EMBER engages the reader from the first harrowing hanging passage to the last haunting song from Ember’s lips.
