In a whirlwind romance, a lovely New York socialite marries a fêted, debonair author. But beneath the charm is a cheating husband addicted to hashish. Her dream marriage turns sour and the simplicity of her life runs amok when a handsome stranger, her husband's business partner, threatens her staunch loyalty to her wayward husband. When she faces the ugly truth about her marriage, her need to finalize her divorce sends her on a mad chase across the wilds of 19th century America with a handsome stranger where she learns the hard lessons of murder, kidnapping, and more, that almost destroy her.

I have to admit that I chose this book because Jane Oppenheimer was narrating. Ive enjoyed her narration in the past and this book is no exception. Since I've never read anything by this author, I was very pleased that this book exceeded my expectations.
The romance of Leila and Rork is a long journey of patience, trust and strength. They are both decent and honorable people who find themselves "between a rock and a hard place". Their love leads them on a course of danger, friendships, captivity and murder..
This book is a treat for those who love 19th century American history. The backdrop of this story spans from the civilized city of New York to the untamed west. I applaud the author for not shying away from including social issues such as substance abuse, domestic abuse, slavery and interracial marriage in this book. Including these issues made the story feel more authentic and the characters more real.
Note: This book does include sexual situations but no explicit sex. There is also some swearing.
I recommend this book if you enjoy a well written and narrated historical romance.
