When John Rankin’s wife Annie dies, leaving him with two children to raise, he’s not quite sure how he can do that and run a working cattle ranch, too. Annie’s domain was home and hearth, and her dying put a hole in his day-to-day rancher lifestyle—far beyond the one she left in his heart.

But his heart is only one of his problems when ten-year-old Callie rebels. Missing her mom and unsure how her life is unfolding, Callie pushes back at every turn and John is unsure how to help her. Then his friend, Buck McGinnis, introduces him to Abby Cooper. Buck thinks John should seek the counsel of a woman for advice dealing with a moody pre-teen female. Suddenly, life becomes even more complicated.

The Parker Ranches, Inc. series launches with this short novella, The Rancher’s Second Chance, establishing the patriarch of the family, John Rankin, and his second chance at love and healing his family.
