This is an excellently written novel that represents Sandra Brown at her best. This romantic mystery is also a wonderfully crafted western that takes place on a wagon train. The story unfolds with unexpected twists that involve people with deep and painful secrets that are central to the plot. The love story is sensuous, yet poignant. Ellen Archer's narration is superb, with convincing distinction among the characters. Great audiobook!
Loved the characters and that the story was set in wagon train. Sandra brown writes great passionate characters. I cannot wait the next book in series is available Another Sunset .
This book takes a young woman who has been abused and raped and throws her into a life with a man who seems okay but hurting.....only to further victimize her by raping her. I deleted the book at that scene, I couldn't bare to see her forgive and fall in love with him! This is not romance!
I have not read the print version but I thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.
When Ross realized how much he loved Lydia and why.
When Ross was taken to see Lydia and the Pinkerton detective gave them their chance to continue their lives together.
Hopefully, comprehensive and predictably
Include more detail with Victoria's interaction with Ross before her death to make her more real so that her father's emotional commitment is better understood...
Luke's teasing his brother about his desires
A train to rediscovery
Yes, I like Sandra Brown, but this story really pissed me off.
The description of the book makes it sound like a passionate romance, but although the sex is eventually passionate, the relationship is the furthest thing from romance. After a life time of rape and abuse, the young girl is forced to marry a hypocritical, egotistical man after becoming a wet nurse for his baby. This "passionate romance" is in fact full of abuse, including brutal rape, by this man who takes every opportunity to turn on her and accuse her of being a whore right along with the rest of the wagon train. One minute he's making love to her and all but professing his love, and the next he's calling her trash and blaming his life's problems on her. It's terrible and absolutely made me angry right to the last page. Nothing romantic about this twisted abusive relationship.
