Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?
Chet Leonard’s life was forever changed when his seventeen year old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.
Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious fifteen-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to Kings Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of become involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.
When 84-year-old Anna McKenna returns to Kings Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet’s families at last discover a love without end.
Hatcher crafts a lovely installment of the Kings Meadow Romance [series] and readers will want more of the Idaho ranchers. This will be a huge hit for those who like ultimate adventures into the wilderness. It takes us into the healing power of horses and God’s ability to create community where it is most needed.
~ RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars)
In this uncomplicated, appealing love story, Hatcher takes readers back to Kings Meadow, Idaho (setting of A Promise Kept), where Chet Leonard, rancher and single father of two teen boys, agrees to assist newcomer Kimberly Welch’s daughter, Tara, in training an unbroken horse. Kimberly and Tara have recently left Seattle, where Kimberly believes they belong. But her husband’s sudden death has left them destitute and insecure, and his massive debts were a bitter surprise. Kimberly’s friend Janet takes her in and recommends fellow church member Chet as a mentor to Tara, whose own attitude has, predictably, plummeted. Chet’s old family friend Anna has returned to the ranch, also widowed after a long, loving marriage. The story of Anna’s loving influence on four generations of Leonards acts as counterpoint to, and guide for, the Welches’ acclimatization to Kings Meadow. Details of the Idaho mountain community’s kindness, and of the development of strong relationships among members of that community, make this a feel-good novel well worth reading.

Hatcher’s contemporary romance explores the hope of overcoming loss when life changes forever. This novel will appeal to women who believe in a second chance at having a family, at finding a love that lasts forever.

Love Without End, the first book in the new Kings Meadow Romance series, again intertwines two beautiful and heartfelt romances. One in the past and one in the future together make this a special read. I’m so glad Robin wrote a love story for Chet who suffered so much in A Promise Kept (January 2014). Kimberly, so wrong for him, becomes so right. Not your run of the mill cowboy romance–enriched with the deft writing and deep emotion.

In Love Without End, Robin Lee Hatcher once again takes us to Kings Meadow, Idaho in a sweeping love story that captures the heart and soul of romance between two people who have every reason not to fall in love. With an interesting back story interspersed among the contemporary chapters, and well drawn, relatable secondary characters, Hatcher hits the mark with her warm and inviting love story.

Love Without End, Book One in Robin Lee Hatcher’s new Kings Meadow series, is a delight from start to finish. The author’s skill at depicting the love and challenges of family has never been more evident as she deftly combines two love stories—past and present—to capture readers’ hearts and lift their spirits.
~ Marta Perry, author of The Forgiven, Book One, Keepers of the Promise
Some stories sweetly grab me from the first pages. Love Without End by Robin Lee Hatcher did just that. A slow dance of overcoming loss, daring to breathe, and opening to love, the characters welcomed me to their world, and I didn’t want to leave. A welcome escape into a world where healing happens through the lens of time and history. I highly recommend it!
