I own this book and enjoyed reading it quite a bit. It is a Christian historical romance. I think that it has a lot more adventure and is more fast-paced than your average romance novel. The time went by very quickly because I was drawn into the plot right away. The writer had me hooked from the first page and I grew to really care about the main characters and like them. But the main antagonist! She drove me crazy! All in all, I think this book is definetely worth your while and you won't regret the hours spent reading it. Its is a keeper.
It's been awhile since I've read the Reardon Valley series. I really enjoy this author and don't know why I've waited so long to read another of her books. What drew me to this series was that it takes place soon after the Revolutionary War. I haven't read much of the late 1700's and first settlements to the west of the original colonies, though I've read quite a bit of wagon trains heading west beyond the Mississippi to Texas and beyond or northwestern area.
Annie is a true frontierswoman if there ever was one. Hard working, never complaining, not realizing her own worthiness. Ike is determined to leave her at the first settlement possible, but by that time she is too much of an asset to the wagon train, plus, he begins to have feelings for her. The other members of the wagon train had varied personalities, some likeable, some not so likeable. If you enjoy a Daniel Boone type adventure, then you will like this book.
