Excellent book! This book begins the Calder series; Stands a Calder Man is #2, This Calder Sky is #3. I have not read the 4th yet, but I loved these 3 and have them posted. The series follows the next Calder generation and their struggles and triumphs. These are not "happily ever after" romance books, the series does have some heartache.
I have been a fan of Janet Dailey since...a long time. I started reading the Calder saga because love series. But I continued to read volume after volume because tis is one of the best stories I have ever read. I laughed and cried and commented out loud because I felt like I was really apart of this well told story. I recommend this to any one who enjoys, romance, suspense, westerns, and a great read that draws you in.
