A Note from MK

Dearest Reader, 

Hattie's story brought together two people who understand loss, hope, and fighting for what you believe in. Carson and Hattie are perfect for each other, and they represent both hope and justice during a time after which so many had suffered. They are strong, beautiful people whose courage I admire greatly. I can't wait for you to meet them. You'll have a chance to meet many characters from this unique Montana town, but for now, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into Crooked Creek.

Be well, be kind, and enjoy!

~ Mk
