A great, gutsy, down and dirty story of the early days when the West was settled. Wonderful ,resilient characters that evolve. Solid plot with lots of historically accurate info and detail about life, wagon trains, the role women played in the building of the west. Almost didn't repost this one.

typical boy meets girl and both have secrets in their past. If you like Brown though, this will be a good read.

I love stories about wagon trains as the pioneers travel to the west to make new homes. There are lots of hardships along the way, with many dangers and sometimes even death, but romance can be found in the most unexpected places. This book had it all. Great story.

Russet-haired, sensuous Lydia and proud, dangerous Ross Coleman are both running from the past. But thrust together on a slow-moving wagon train, they will soon be pulled into a maelstrom of danger and desire.

Lydia's baby is born stillborn. She's accepted onto a wagon train because she has milk to give to a newborn whose mother died in childbirth. The father, Ross, dislikes Lydia but is attracted to her. Excellent story.

I like most of Sandra Brown's romance novels but not this one. Frankly I had to quit half way through. The male character was so surly and unlikeable it was hard to take. I can't imagine what would make the guy act like a decent human being and I was tired of waiting. The female character had suffered a horrible childhood after her father died and her mother remarried and had brought her into a home where she was repeatedly beaten and raped. The story starts with a young girl in the woods alone, in labor, having a stillborn child, left for dead. Not exactly heart-warming material to start off and it didn't get any better. I did not care about what a gorgeous bod the man had and I was tired of the constant talk about the woman's big breasts. I just saw very little joy in this so-called romance and didn't want to further drag myself down so I quit.

good book. It starts off by pulling me in with wanting to know Lydia's secrets and once meeting Ross wanting to hear his secrets. Great Romance novel.

This book had me hooked from the first sentence. I found it very difficult to put it down and get some sleep so I could get to work the next day! Great writing and compelling characters. I don't know why I waited so long to read it; I'm a fan of Ms. Brown's and this book was originally published in 1985.

This was the first book of a 2 book series (The second is about Lydia's daughter) I thought the book was good, a few parts were a little rough but no different than real life I guess.

I read this book years ago because it was being raved about online but it didn't work for me. At all. I had some major issues with the hero who verges on caveman but I won't spoil it for the rest of you. This copy was found at a yard sale for the Humane Society.

I really liked this story. It is a little different because we meet the heroine Lydia giving birth and praying for death. The Hero Ross is kind of a jerk in the beginning because he didn't want to be attracted to Lydia because she was a "tramp". Overall it was a great read.
