Mace Nichols is an ‘I’ll die with my boots on’ cowboy. Old-school. Tough, silent and honorable. Which is why he’s leaving his wife, Jenny. She has helped him build his dream—the Montana ranch they loved. Now he can’t give her the family she’s always dreamed of, so he has no choice: he needs to set her free. It makes perfect sense to him.
It doesn’t make a bit of sense to Jenny! She loves her stubborn, bull-headed husband. She admires his courage, his tenacity and his determination to always Do The Right Thing—even if, in this case, it is the stupidest thing he’s ever done.
Mace is right—Jenny has always wanted a family. But she wants a family with Mace! How can she convince the most honorable, stubborn man in the world what really matters in life?

THE COWBOY FINDS A FAMILY by Anne McAllister
The Cowboy Finds a Family by Anne McAllister, book one in her Cowboys of Horse Thief Mountain, was an enjoyable tale of a stubborn, silent, and honorable cowboy who thinks he knows best; even if his decision destroys his marriage and his world.
Mace Nichols and his wife Jenny have been in love forever; marrying shortly after Jenny graduated from high school. Jenny gave up her dreams to help Mace build his, a Montana ranch they love. When Mace learns that he unable to give Jenny the family she’s always dreamed of, instead of manning up and figuring out how they can move forward, he decides the best choice is to set her free.
Jenny does not want to be set free. She still loves her stubborn, bull-headed husband, with his tendency to always do the right thing; even if she believes this is the stupidest thing he has ever done. Mace is correct in that Jenny has always wanted a family, but she wants that family with Mace. It took the words of a ten-year old, that Mace let in, before he was able to realize that families came in all sizes, shapes, and way; that you could definitely love a child that wasn’t made by you.
Ms. McAllister wrote a sad, emotional tale forcing her characters to look outside of their feelings. She provided a wonderful tale, rich with emotions, and secondary characters giving Jenny and Mace a chance to create the family they want. I highly recommend The Cowboy Finds a Family to other readers.
