Summary
From "New York Times "bestselling author Janet Dailey comes a captivating story of a man who's given up, a woman who won't let go, and a race to find a treasure that could bring them wealth and so much more...
Something More
Life in Glory, Wyoming, population fifty-one, isn't exactly exciting. The dusty old town isn't even on the map. And for rancher Luke McCallister, that's just fine. Broken by tragedy, the stoic cowboy spends his time at his Ten Bar Ranch or down at Ima Jane's Rimrock Bar, trying to avoid the gossip being served along with the food and drink. But the everyday quiet of his life is shattered when he finds a human skull--and possibly the key to Glory's oldest mystery.
It was one hundred years ago that a band of outlaws were said to have buried their gold in Glory. The one surviving bandit took the secret of the treasure's hiding place with him to the gallows. Angie Sommers knows the story cold: that man was her great-great-grandfather. She's come to Glory to see if the old legend of the gold is true, and she wants Luke to help her find it. She even has incentive: a possible clue written by the dead man himself.
Luke has no interest in chasing after pipe dreams. He's seen the damage too much hope can bring. Still, he can't deny that Angie makes him feel things he hasn't allowed himself to feel in years. Something about her sweet, trusting nature, her honest eyes, and unshakable belief makes him feel alive again--and that could be dangerous. For someone else is determined to stop Angie, someone who would do anything for the outlaws'gold. Now, bound by the thinnest of ties and shadowed by danger, Luke and Angie set off in search of a mystery as romantic as the west itself on a journey of faith that will take them into Wyoming's rugged, treacherous terrain and even deeper into the heart's tender graces...
"The passion, spirit and strength readers expect from a Calder story--and a Calder hero--shine through. . ."

"Dailey's pacing, narrative, characterization and dialogue are all handled with verve and grace."

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: ""A skeleton discovered on the Ten Bar Ranch in eastern Wyoming and purported to be her long-lost grandfather sets Angie Sommers on a treasure hunt for the gold her train-robber ancestor supposedly hid there, and for which her grandfather was searching when he disappeared. Several inhabitants of Glory are equally desperate to claim the treasure for themselves, but Angie hires grief-stricken Luke McCallister, the Ten Bar's owner, to guide her. As the quest continues, it seems no one but Luke, still mourning the loss of his wife and child several years ago, is unaffected by greed and ambition. In a departure from her many romances, Dailey's mainstream tale of a moribund town's struggle to survive, fighting despair with faith and trying to reconcile their needs and desires with the demands of hospitality and neighborliness, is curiously gripping."--"Welch, Lynne" Copyright 2007 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Known for her popular Calder saga set in Montana (Calder Storm, etc.), Dailey turns her attention to the Ten Bar Ranch, near Glory, Wyo. (pop. 51), run by a young, laid-back widower, Luke McCallister. Still grieving over losing his family four years earlier, Luke, who swigs whiskey to dull the pain, isn't particularly rattled when a skeleton turns up on his property. He is surprised, however, by his attraction to redheaded Angie Sommers, an Iowa school teacher who comes to Glory after being notified that the remains appear to be of Henry James Wilson, her long missing grandfather. Henry James's grandfather was Ike Wilson, a train robber executed on the gallows: the skeleton's presence on Luke's land suggests that Ike's missing treasure may be there, too. Saddlebags Smith, a local gold-hunting eccentric, warns the two that "lookin' for that gold will make you crazy," while Luke's ranch hands and another townie complicate matters. Veteran tale-spinner Dailey depicts ranching life with a sure-handed, affectionate humor. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
