Publisher's Summary

Kylie Wilde fought in the Civil War dressed as a boy and now she's homesteading as a man. But she makes one lousy man! When land agent Aaron Masterson comes to inspect her claim, he immediately realizes she's a woman. She begs him not to tell, but can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government, even if she really did serve in the war? Aaron is interested in the little spitfire from the moment her long hair falls from her cap, but when he tells her of his plan to stake his own claim, farther west and up in the mountains, she draws away.

Kylie's focus is to "prove up" her homestead, sell it for a profit, move back east, and live the rest of her life in civilization. But all Kylie's future plans are put in jeopardy when someone tries to burn her out. Who would attack her way out here? Aaron and Kylie suspect it's the local land baron - but Gage Coulter denies any involvement. He does suggest a way for Kylie to stay safe, though - marry him! More attacks scare Kylie near to death, and she can't face living on her own any longer. Should she tie her fortune to Gage or Aaron? Either choice will put an end to her dreams of a civilized life. And what if marrying doesn't stop the attacks after all?

    Story
    "Good story centered around homesteading era."

    Well told story with with a bit of mystery, old west action, and strong family values. I love the telling of how it was back then in early America, with all the struggles people endured.

    "Surprising"

    Surprisingly good. Clean read. Somewhat predictable but not too slow. Will probably read the next in series.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They were all very good!


    What does Barbara McCulloh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    When you hear the character speaking it's better than just reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book I'm sure you will enjoy it.

    Story
    "A fluffy listen"
    Have you listened to any of Barbara McCulloh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first McCulloh narration. I enjoyed it. I could hear her clearly and characters each had a distinct vocal persona.


    Do you think Tried and True needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Follow-ups are expected and allowed for with two unattached females at the end of the novel.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a light' amusing read.

    "Tried and True"

    The story itself is entertaining but the narration is just not to my liking. I really wish that the author would choose a different narrator.
