Publisher's Summary

Adventurers, families, outlaws were all driven west in the 1860s by a longing for endless blue sky along with wild and wide-open spaces. Tracie Peterson, from her own Montana home, paints an unforgettable portrait of this rich, rugged landscape, populated by strong and spirited characters. When Dianne Chadwick urges her family to move west to her uncle's ranch in the Montana Territory, she has no idea that her new life in the rugged frontier - and even within her uncle's home - will not be the idyllic adventure she expects. But first she has to survive the arduous wagon journey with the help of guide Cole Selby, whose heart seems to be as hard as the mountains he loves.

    Story
    "Good book; poor performance"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I always enjoy Tracie Peterson. However, I won't buy another book read by this lady. Her swallowing and smacking irritated me but when I heard her stomach rumble, that was it! Too bad for a good book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Another reader!


    Did Land of My Heart inspire you to do anything?

    Wish I could have gotten through it!


    Any additional comments?

    Please, please screen readers thoroughly. A good reader makes a difference!

    Story
    "Too little, too late"
    Would you listen to Land of My Heart again? Why?

    No. The romance between the main characters was too slow in developing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed the glimpse into the Virginia City mining days. The least interesting for me was the amount of time spent on the mother's drug addiction . The romance , or at least the attraction between the main characters should have been developed more on the wagon train trip .


    Have you listened to any of Ruth Ann Phimister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not listened to her before , but she did a good job. The characterization's were done well


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

    The scene where Cole's fiancé was shot down

    "Great Blessing, this book"
    If you could sum up Land of My Heart in three words, what would they be?

    Discovery, acceptance, practice


    What did you like best about this story?

    From the first to last words in this book, Christ Jesus and His redemption is displayed in novel which sets out perfectly a real life scenario. I want to listen to books that are Bible studies in themselves always for sure sticking to good theology, which this one does.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the end of the book, last chapter....Diane hitting home what Cole's heartache really was all about.


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

    Diane's uncle sharing his former life story.


    Any additional comments?

    This book and I'm sure the series (I am going to start book 2) are a must listen.
