Publisher's Summary

Like many small towns, Buffalo Valley is dying. Stores are boarded up, sidewalks are cracked, houses are in need of coats of paint. But despite all that, there's a spirit of hope here, of defiance. The few people still left here are fighting for their town.

Lindsay Snyder is a newcomer. She's an outsider even though she spent childhood vacations here. Now she returns to see the family house again, to explore family secrets, and to reevaluate her life. And soon after she arrives, she meets a local farmer named Gage Sinclair....

Lindsay decides to stay in North Dakota. Her decision marks a new beginning for Buffalo Valley and for her. Because in this broken little town, she discovers the love and purpose she's been seeking.

    "FIRST BUT NOT LAST!!!"

    This is my first novel by Debbie Macomber but it certainly won't be my last. It's also my first for narrator Carly Robins. DM and CR make a great pair! I never stopped listening once I started this novel. Loved the characters and the development of each one by Ms. Macomber. Normally I don't like endings that leave one hanging but because I know that this ending opens the door for the next in the series, I'm ok with it. I'm downloading the next in the series as we speak. So glad I found Debbie Macomber and rest assured that I will look for other books by her that are highly rated.

    Worth the credit???? ABSOLUTELY!!!

    "Hateful men"
    Where does Dakota Born rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I wasn't happy with the fact that the men were all so hateful to the women and some just mean, just not used to so much of it..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    "Not as good as her other books."

    I've listened to a lot of Debbie Macomber books and have enjoyed all of them with the exception of this one. The reason I say this is only because the men in the book were harsh to their women, very harsh at times. Maybe if I knew the reason Ms. Macomber wrote the book this in fashion, I could better understand. Some of the parts, especially about the young people and the new teacher were really enjoyable. So, with that said, it was an ok book that I struggled listening to but did finish.

    "Disappointing for this Macomber fan"

    I have been a Debbie Macomber fan for a long time. I really enjoyed the Cedar Cove and Rise Harbor series. But I'm sorry to say that this will be he second book I am requesting a refund if my credit for. I did finish the book, but was very disappointed I the constant fighting and making up and then more fighting between mist of the characters. I won't be seeing what happens to some if the characters because I will not be finishing the series. I will maybe read a new series from Macomber, but not this Dakota series. I read for enjoyment and this one just didn't do that for me.
