Both this novel and the first book of this series (SUNFLOWER) won RITA Awards. Theres no doubt in my mind why they won in their particular years. This book completes the series by telling the story of Annika, daughter of Caleb and Analisa Storm. It is critical to read these books in order (Actually, WILDFLOWER is not part of this family saga see below).

Annika decides to cancel her Boston wedding at the last minute. On her way west to stay with her brother Kase and his wife, she is kidnapped from the train by a man swearing she is his mail-order bride. By the time Buck Scott realizes his mistake, Buck, his young niece and Annika are snow-bound in his humble cabin.

Annika is a product of her pampered Boston life and is shocked by what it takes to stay alive in such difficult circumstances as Buck exists. He is a mountain man who earns his living trapping animals for their food and fur.

Although she never lived in the soddie with Kase and her mother (book 1), Annika has enough of her mothers gumption to learn the survival skills that Buck is willing to teach her. Buck and Annika grow individually by knowing each other; they are both compelling characters.

Kase, his wife Rose and Zack Elliot return in this story. This story is a beautiful summation of the trilogy.
