I liked the book, I liked the series. Now that I have read the entire series, I have moved to the Jesse Stone books.

A very nice portable Kipling. Just right for reading on that long train trip to the frontier in the service of the Queen.

One must remember that the book is not a story, it is simply a collection of disjointed recollections. Other than collecting a lot of recollections of old me, and some women, it adds nothing to make the Custer story. ;

Guys this is a book by and for women. Don't bother. The author ran out of airspeed and ideas about the sametime. The ending is lame and limps to a close.
