Caleb McCain knows that the time will come when Belle will remember her real name. He also knows that when it happens he will have to back away and let her grasp her old life. He doesn't know how he will be able to let her go, but he will. His job pretty much demands it.
Belle begins to remember bits and pieces of her life, including her name. She is no closer to knowing who hurt her but every day she recollects more, including a fiancé. With that in mind, Belle knows she has to face her fears head on and go back to her hometown.
SON OF TEXAS by Linda Warren made me feel warm inside because of its nurturing aspect. I felt Caleb's pain at the thought of losing the woman he has come to care so much about. Belle's pain was just as heartrending because she cared so much for Caleb and did not want to hurt him. All in all, a poignant, gentle, enjoyable afternoon read.
