The Test of Devotion is a western novella about healing and redemption. Second chances and happily ever after get a rugged makeover against the backdrop of Texas in the 1850s. Teenage Viajero has always grown up confident in his abilities—the child of an outlaw, he knows the ins and outs of the west like the back of his hand. But he gets quite a bit more than he expected when he chooses easterner Henry Trevalyn as someone he wants to help. Henry has come to Texas looking for his former fiancé, who moved away after she believed him dead. When it appears that the missing Arabella has gotten herself into quite a predicament, Viajero finds that enigmatic and critical Jenny Forsythe will be his best bet for assisting Henry. She seems to disapprove of Viajero—sometimes trust and respect can be as hard-won as the West itself. And when it comes to exposing the schemes of Arabella's husband to the Governor himself, they’ll have an uphill battle even when Jenny decides to cooperate.
