Beyond This Moment

Paperback, 396 pages
This is the second book in the Timber Ridge Reflection series and as I read the first one, the story just flows. Molly Whitcomb stepped from the train and pause to look around, she waited to get her luggage as she had something she had to do before she left on the stage for the last part of her journey to Timber Ridge Colorado where she was to begin her job as the new teacher. She had worked to get her dictatorial degree in languages, and was working at Franklin College as a professor when beyond her control after her father died she was let go and was sent to Timber Ridge to set up a new school where there never had been one before.
Molly had no idea what would happen to the stage as she was riding over the mountain passes.
When she finally got to Timber Ridge and started teaching, she had a really hard time with the city council as everything she did was under a microscope. She had secrets from her past and was living a lie, as she let everyone believe that she was a widow. She meet the young handsome sheriff James McPherson and they both had a past that they were not telling. Molly had a time with the council and her students, but she found a way to teach that had the entire country coming to see.
The new hotel was being built that was right at the surfer springs and they were using Italian immigrants to do the work, but they were not being paid much and she wanted one of the little boys to come to her school but he was not allowed the same as the black little son of Josiah Birch, he was introduced in the first book. She was teaching them on her own time but the council didn't like that either. She could speak three languages and was a big help in translating the Italian from the workers and she helped them. Will Molly ever do anything to please the council? Will she be able to teach the children or will she be replaced? What is this secret she is hiding?
