captures the spirit of America\'s past while she ignites our emotions with a wonderful story of love and adventure
This was a very good read for me. She makes all of her characters come alive.
This novel spins a wondrous tale of an unforgettable Texas heroine. Katherine Simon has never stopped loving her childhood sweetheart, not even after he comes home from war determined to marry another woman....her pretty, pampered sister, Karin. But all will change with the cry of "GOLD" from California....a call for a reckless young man to make his fortune and for an irrespressible woman to make a daring journey of the heart.
I recomend all of Elaine Coffman's love stories! Especially this one!
Unrequited romances are some of my favorite themes, however, For All the Right Reasons was far from satisfying. This painfully slow, drawn out tale made me want to knock Alex's and Katherine's heads together; Alex because he was so blinded by his infatuation with the sister, and Katherine, for waiting for Alex so long when she could have had Adrian, Alex's gem of a brother. The story was just frustrating and was spread over too many years. Disappointing at two stars.
Katherine Simon is a woman of the earth. Passionate and strong, she belongs in the arms of one man: Alex Mackinnon. But Alex has set his mind on Kathrine's sister, Karin, a woman who toys with his heart---and crushes her sister's hopes. And while Alex's twin brother, Adrian, dares to dream that Katherine might someday be his, he knows taht Katherine can love only one man. As a drama of desire, despair, and reckless longing unfolds, Katherine and Alex Journey into the depths of an untamed country to follow a dream and discover love at last ... for all the right reasons.
