I enjoyed the storyline and the characters, I had read Granite Man and wanted to catch up on the MacKenzie family. Love the descriptions of the land, ranch and mountains. She really makes the scenes vivid in your minds eye. I am finding that I don't like the continuous litany of self doubt and reasoning that was expressed on nearly every page. We readers aren't stupid and don't have to read it over and over to keep us in the know.
I have recently discovered Elizabeth Lowell's stories, thankd to this wonderful site. This was not one of her better novels.It seemed to lack substance. Still a good story but not as good as her newer ones. Istill plan to read all others in this series.
