More Than Meets the Eye

By Karen Witemeyer


Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at a young age and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes--one bright blue, the other dark brown--Eva has fought to find her way in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet the support of even one person can help overcome the world's judgments, and Eva has two--Seth and Zach, two former orphans she now counts as brothers.

Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler arrives in 1880s Pecan Gap, Texas, to confront Zach Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father's death. Only instead of finding a solitary ruthless gambler, he discovers a man not much older than himself with an unusual family. When Zach's sister, Evangeline, insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time their paths cross, Logan finds his quest completely derailed. Who is truly responsible for his lost legacy, and will restoring the past satisfy if it means forfeiting a future with Evangeline?

Book Takeaway:

My prayer in creating this heroine with heterochromia is that she will encourage readers who feel different and possibly rejected because they fail to fit into societal norms. I also want to remind readers of all types to look beyond the surface and seek out the hidden beauty in the people around them.

Why the author wrote this book:

Family is such an essential human bond, yet not all families are built on blood. Some are built through shared circumstances, hardship, or adoption. In creating the Hamiltons, I wanted to bring all three of these elements together to show the defining element of family—love. As Evangeline says, "No matter how many people reject or betray you, if you have even one person in your life that you can count on—really, truly count on—you can overcome any obstacle." That's family.
