What readers say about Braver Than You Know:
★★★★★ "Katie Ardea's debut novel, Braver Than You Know, is a heartwarming tale of love, courage, and healing. After the first chapter I was hooked, and I found myself unable to put the book down! I wanted to know the secrets that Kimberley and Lincoln were hiding and I quickly became emotionally invested in their relationship." - Robyn, Amazon
★★★★ "I did not want the book to end. I felt that I knew the characters, they were believable and well developed. I love nature and I felt like I was truly on scene during the adventures. A great escape that I recommend..." - Deb,Goodreads
★★★★ "The main characters are realistic, relatable, and grow. Action scenes are balanced with quieter moments. One point of suspense later in the book is handled particularly well. Details of ranching, wildlife photography, and Canadian life on the prairies are interesting and impressive – Ardea either did a lot of research or has a lot of experience. I'm looking forward to the next in this series." - Tim, Amazon
