“OMG!! This book was soooo great. I bought it this afternoon and just could not put it down until I finished. Poor Wade, who lost his whole family at such a young age. Rachel, who lost her father on the wagon train during an Indian attack.” ~~ Trish
“Enjoyed this book immensely. Author did a very good job of bringing the reader into the story. Seemed to authenically represent the 1800's male mentality of a women's place is society, and how the Rachel truly proved the men wrong time and again. Rachel and Wade had true depth of character. Strong characterizations through out the book.” ~~ Lovin’ Reading
