Sarah’s Secret, A Western Tale of Betrayal and Forgiveness
Bev Scott, Author (historical fiction)
Follow the paths of Sarah and Sam, the two key protagonists, as they tell their stories of trust, secrets, and betrayal in the old West. Their pioneer spirit helped to fuel the expansion into the Western territories of the United States. The two are historically on their separate journeys, yet they remain intimately connected. Through the fictionalized Western frontier tale of Sam and Sarah, the author, Bev Scott, was inspired to reveal rumored secrets from her family history. In the 1880’s, Sam, who is irresponsible, lonely and untrustworthy has abandoned those he loves until he seeks redemption and marries Sarah. After Sam’s death in 1911, Sarah struggles to find the inner strength to overcome loneliness, poverty, and illness, to support her children. After a perilous journey by wagon from New Mexico to Nebraska, she learns of Sam’s betrayal. Will Sarah find forgiveness in her heart and the resolve to accept her new life alone?
