Description

When Dani sets out to uncover her father’s past, she also discovers her own future.

Raised by her mother, eighteen-year-old Dani Lancaster only had six weeks to get to know her father, Sam, before he lost his battle with cancer. It was long enough to love him, but not long enough to get to know him — especially since Sam didn’t even know himself.

In this two-book bundle, Dani meets and loses her birth father, and then sets out to uncover his real past.

Truths I Learned from Sam
Despite initial misgivings, it’s the best summer of 17-year-old Dani’s life. Staying in a small community while her mother honeymoons in Europe, Dani finds her days filled with riding, reading, rodeo, and romance. Life couldn’t get any better. Then, suddenly, it couldn’t get any worse, and she discovers that bad things can happen to good people.

In Search of Sam
Determined to discover her dead father’s past, which was a mystery even to him, eighteen-year-old Dani Lancaster heads into B.C.’s Interior. Her search eventually leads her to a tiny rustic community, charming in its own way but full of secrets. Here, Dani’s digging reveals more than she was searching for.
