Overview

1851: Niagara Falls, New York The evidence has been well hidden—the Thayers were confident that it was safe from the clutches of the ruthless Murphy Gang. But it has all been in vain. The lawless group is closing in on the family homestead, and seven-year-old Penny is given only one instruction: Run. After two long years eagerly anticipating her fiancé’s return, twenty-year-old Julia Barrett is ready to make a fresh start with Adam Wolcott—even if it means putting her dream of traveling west with the Mormons on hold. But when Adam’s return is overshadowed by the unexpected arrival of a young orphan girl in desperate need of help, Julia is drawn into a dangerous mystery that will threaten all she holds dear. Charged with the protection of little Penny, Julia quickly finds herself relying on the help of Tom Harrison, an endearing young man who has long admired her from afar. Torn between two suitors, Julia soon uncovers a shocking trail of corruption and deceit—a discovery that pulls her inescapably into the race to locate telling evidence that Penny’s family gave their lives to protect . . .

Family ties and a touch of magic woven together make this story a delightful read! Living in an idyllic Niagara Falls town in the mid-1800's, Julia Barrett and her family helped hide and move slaves along the Underground Railroad, seldom encountering anything more dangerous than the occasional slave hunter. That is until members of a gang from far-off Missouri upset everything, all the way from the aristocracy of the town to innocent families. Romance, murder, extortion, arson, and counterfeiting combine in an enchanting story.

BETRAYED has twists and unexpected turns throughout the entire story. I love how the writer entwined the richness of the historical time and events into her writing. The characters were totally believable and I felt attached to each one of them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a little romance, mystery, history and a great storyline. Rhonda has once again proven herself as an excellent writer. Jane Still author Mothers Daze and Crazy Daze of Motherhood.
