Publisher's Summary

Childhood sweethearts Leah Starr and Johnny Whitehorse had nothing in common. She was a senator's daughter. He was the grandson of an Apache medicine man and the local "bad boy". But their passion made the rest of the world seem unimportant, until a cruel deception forced them apart. Years later, Leah has returned to her hometown, burdened with memories, familiar with struggle and hard work, but when she sees Johnny again, her strength is tested. Now one of the most powerful men in the country, Johnny has also returned home. His mission is to bring Leah's power-hungry father down in the dust. When their love becomes too strong to ignore, both must make the ultimate choice, between the obligations of duty, and of the heart.

    "Loved Listening."

    I bought this on the recommendation of other readers on audible site. Never read a book by this author before. When it ended I wished it would just go on and on! Reader read it very well. I would listen at night and go on for longer than I intended. Great bedtime story.

    "Interesting story"

    This is a difficult book for me to rate. For much of the story, I was uncomfortable with the actions of both lead characters. I was also frustrated by their lack of communication. As the story unfolds, you understand the characters better, and even sympathize, but both Whitehorse and Leah are very flawed and stubborn individuals and not always likeable.

    Johnny Whitehorse, as introduced in the beginning of the book, is selfish and opportunistic. His relationship with Delores is self-serving (for both) and put me off. The entire restaurant scene with Delores and Johnny, and Leah and her date is weird and unsettling. And I guess that's the watch-word for the entire book: it's unsettling.

    Sutcliffe gets on a few soap boxes during the novel, mostly about the plight of Native Americans and the needs of children with cerebral palsy. The monologues are informative and even moving, but feel forced.

    My last complain is the abrupt ending of the book. I'm not a big epilogue fan, but there is absolutely no denouement after the final climatic scene.

    On the plus side, the writing is excellent, and the author does an marvelous job giving the reader a sense of time and place. The descriptions were detailed without being wordy, drawing the reader into the sights, sounds, smells, and emotions. The main characters, while not always likeable, are very real, flaws and all. Some of the best scenes in the book are between Leah and her son--very beautifully done.

    Kate Reading's narration is excellent!

    "Whitehorse"

    WOW! I just finished this book and I must say that it was a very thrilling read. The characters were more than likeable and the interaction between each of them was great. The romance was outstanding and the story line was good as well. I also couldn't believe how much I laughed and cried with this book. If you're looking for a good romance, with heart wrenching scenes - this is it.

    "enjoyable story"

    This was well narrated. The various characters' voices were distinct in a natural way.
    The main characters were well drawn, although I did feel the subsidiary ones were difficult to visualise.
    The story moved along well, but some elements were raised then didn't seem to be developed, for example Leah becomes a vet at the race course, but my impression was she only worked there about a week.
    Not a deep story, but a satisfying listen
