Drawn from Wyoming Territory for the first time in his life, Jake Costner sets off to find his destiny, leaving his love behind in Logan Meadows.
Learning that his saloon-girl mother has known all along who sired him, Jake takes his fate into his own hands and travels away from the only family he's ever known. Unaware of what awaits him at the end of his train ride, Jake discovers not only a dying father, but a surprise that will change his life forever. More is on the line than returning to Logan Meadows, where Daisy Smith awaits the wedding he's promised. Given new awakenings, bitter sorrow, and a daring escape, will Jake return a whole man? Or will the happiness he and Daisy have been building for the last two years be lost?

I have had a soft spot for Jake since he was introduced in Where the Wind Blows (Prairie Hearts #1). In spite of the abuse and hardships that Jake endured in his childhood, he did everything he could to better his life. I really admired his bravery when he decided to join Chase and Jessie when they relocated to Logan Meadows, Wyoming. It turned out to be the best decision he made because the move gave him a fresh start. He was able to find love, family and a sense of community in Logan Meadows.
I have to admit that I was fearful for Jake's well-being when he set out on the journey to meet the father who refused to acknowledge him until he was on his deathbed. There were certainly some shocking twists but Jake demonstrated his strength of character and Christian values while he was away from home.
Although this is a novella, it is just as action packed as the other books in the series. Be sure to set aside time to listen to this audio-book in one sitting because you will be unable to put it down once you start.
In my top five. It is definitely one of my favorites and one I will listen to again.
Where Wind Meets Wave is very similar to the writings of Debra Holland. It is a lovely step back into time when friendships and loyalty are strong and the character of a man means something.
Hearing the narration is like watching a movie in my head. It just makes the story more alive and colorful having someone else read the story.
Definitely Jake. A man like Jake would surely have great stories to share.
I did enjoy this addition to the Prairie Hearts Series so very much and as always wait eagerly for the next book.This author is without a doubt one of my favorites! She writes stories with such heart, and with strong plots!
Absolutely loved it!
Jake, of course. The audible feels like you get to know his true character and his soul. He found the father he didn't know, he now had a real last name, he has sisters he didn't know about and with his marriage to Daisy, a new life. I could hear his happiness and character as a man while taking on new responsibilities.
Excellent narration! His voice adds real emotion and sincerity to the book itself. I loved hearing the voice of Jake and the sweetness of Daisy. His inflections gave more meaning to the storyline. I could listen to the book again (and probably will).
My reactions went from smiles, laughing and feeling good, to the depth of the grip in my chest when Jake rescued Dalton. Then I had to wipe my eyes when sweet Adaline took her spot in the pew at the wedding. She and Courtney will make perfect new citizens in Logan Meadows.
The voice of Jake at the end of the book was perfect; "may your horse always be fast, your steak hot and juicy and your bed soft, and may all your dreams come true." Then the sweet voice of Daisy trying to get his attention. They are now newly weds. Got my Kleenex once again.
