For decades the town of Copper Creek had been shrouded in legend. Was the friendly Missouri town named for the stream coursing along its eastern border? Or did its identity originate from nearby copper deposits hidden long ago by the mysterious miner? Amy Kent knows the truth. But after a twenty-year absence, setting the record straight about her father’s hidden bonanza is the last thing on Amy’s mind. Rather, the chance to punish the men responsible for their bitter exile from Copper Creek has finally given her the courage to return home and change the town’s future forever.
In the spring of 1872, Amy rides into Copper Creek with anger in her heart and deceit upon her lips. In search of Michael Randolph, she is denied a reunion by his absence on business and decides to wait for his return. Meanwhile, she faces mounting complications from old friends and new residents alike. But perhaps the most disturbing obstacle to her plans for revenge is the town’s handsome doctor, Luke Owens.
Torn between a private vow and her growing admiration for the rural physician, Amy’s dilemma is further complicated by a longstanding mystery linked to her father’s closest friend. But in order to unravel the secrets of the past and seize her chance at retribution, she’ll have to choose between love and hate. Her decision will irrevocably alter her life by revealing that the mysterious miner’s true legacy is more than just a lost mine of rich copper ore.
A prequel to the Copper Creek Series of novels, The Mysterious Miner’s Legacy, goes back to Copper Creek’s early beginning to tell a tale of heartbreak, faith, courage, and redemption. With insight into the lives of pivotal characters from the original series and introductions to new members of the town, this novel adds more depth and color to an already compelling family saga.
