I liked this story. Our heroine, Josie, is left in the carriage of the local widowed store keeper by her single mother and raised with much love. She is loved by everyone and I like this angle vs the underprivileged always being shunned. Ms Luck gives us a wonderful alternate view of life in the west. Josie meets the man of her dreams and eventually they marry but its a time span until that happens. He, our hero, comes to town to build a railroad, leaves and then returns. He is caught up in the politics surrounding the railroad against his wishes and eventually is freed from it to come back to Josie. This story is set during the time of President Grant, freed slaves, and the developing West.
