Calves dotted the fenced-in fields, as did the new foals tottering on long, shaky legs as they ran alongside their mamas. It was spring. A time of renewal. Cat felt it in every facet of her being. A short distance ahead, she noticed an old car on the side of the road. When she passed, she saw it was empty and thought nothing of it. But no sooner had she passed than she realized someone was on foot on the shoulder ahead. Most likely the driver of the car. It wasn’t Cat’s habit to pick up hitchhikers, but the person on foot was a young teenage girl carrying a small suitcase, so she changed her mind.

Not for anybody. And she was ready to put as much passion into a family as she had into avenging her father’s murder. All she needed was the chance.

That blue was echoed by the bluebonnets blooming in the pastures and along the roadsides.

He was a proud man who didn’t play favorites, and he was not influenced by people with money. This morning, he’d had a fight with his wife, Conchita, a flat tire on his car and had burned his tongue on his first sip of coffee.
