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?

My Review


I love Forgotten Memories, by Penny Zeller. And it’s the first book in a new series. Yay! I enjoyed the blend of the rough old west setting and the nostalgic feel of the Little House book series. I could gush on and on about second chances, its sweet romance, small town setting, and memorable characters... 


The story focuses on Annie and Caleb, from childhood to young adulthood. They are both easy to connect and sympathize with. I especially connected with Caleb and adored his sense of compassion. And the secondary characters are just as charming and unforgettable, such as Reverend Solomon. 


I first read one of Penny Zeller’s books last year (Love Under Construction - a contemporary romance) and fell in love with her writing style and how she incorporates humor and fun with ease. This story, being a historical western, is a bit different, but carries the same tenderness and wholesome tone.


With themes of forgiveness, grace, and second chances, this story is sure to touch your heart. This wholesome tale is woven together beautifully and meaningfully with a strong spiritual thread.


First Line: A fleeting movement caught twelve-year-old Annie Ledbetter’s attention.

Genre: Historical Fiction/Christian Fiction

Content: Wholesome

Page Count: 327


Disclosure: #CoverLoverBookReview received a complimentary copy of this book.
