While I found the premise and characters of this story interesting, I felt at times like I was reading an almanac, rather than Christian Romance. The details of wilderness survival and Ranch life were interesting, but it tended to get really bogged down in all the step-by-step details. Just about the time when I thought the story was about to get interesting, I hear the man's voice say "The End". I literally thought something must be wrong with the recording. So many loose ends, unanswered questions and unresolved conflicts... Plus, I have no idea what the moral of this book was. Usually you can walk away from a good book with a nugget of truth to carry with you. So much potential...and I really like the main character, but the end felt like the end of a chapter in the middle of the book, rather than the end of the book. I will be listening to the 2nd book in the series, if for no other reason than to feel like I actually finished the story, before moving on.
