THE WAY WEST FOR RACHEL SINCLAIR LED STRAIGHT DOWN THE AISLE
And into the arms of a man she barely knew! But Cord McPherson had taken her and her brothers in when trouble struck along the trail. And Rachel believed in her heart that this marriage of convenience would grow into a bond more precious than gold.
An instant family wasn't something Cord McPherson had planned on acquiring, but the sight of Rachel protecting her brothers told him she was plenty strong enough to be his bride. And he was good and ready to make their promise to each other last a lifetime.
This is one of those books that a reader can sink her teeth into with a complex plot that satisfies. The two main characters, Rachel Sinclair and Cord McPherson are two intelligent, mature adults who have good chemistry together.
Rachel is responsible for two younger brothers; their parents died on the trail from Pennsylvania. Cord, and his Civil War hero brother, Jacob, share a large ranch. Jake came home from the war without legs and has spent the past three years feeling sorry for himself (he was a concert pianist).
When the town finds out that Cord hired Rachel to be the ranchs cook and laundry lady (and there is no other female to serve as a chaperone), the ministers wife sits them down for a serious chat.
The secondary characters are also interesting. When Rachel and Cord get together, their happiness affects others in ways they could not have imagined. Carolyn Davidson weaves her magic so that the reader cares about these characters and their problems.
Wonderful book great love story
