Wild Card (Paperback)
Jennie Hansen's latest action-packed novel is as full of twists and turns as the road to Galveston and Frank's new life. Set in turn-of-the-century America, this epic tale is as vast and sweeping as the plains of Texas . . . and beyond.
Filled with breathtaking suspense, Frank's story is one of misunderstandings, betrayals, heartaches — and deadly secrets. Bound together with an assortment of unsavory characters on the wrong side of the law, yet separated from them by his differing ideals, Frank finds himself in a race against time to save lives, even scores, and heal old wounds.
A timeless tale of the struggle between good and evil, and of one man's journey to find himself — and God.

I really enjoyed Jennie Hansen's 'Wild Card'. Set in the wild west, Jennie takes us through the life of Frank as he learns what is really inportant in life and how to forgive himself. Make sure you have plenty of time to read as you won't be able to put this book down!
