This book is one of my favorite books. Dorothy Wiley is an excellent story teller and I enjoyed every minute of it. Can't wait for the next one to come out as an audio book.
Alan Phillip Ormond does an excellent job of reading it with all the right emphasis in the right places.
Before there was Texas or Montana and couregous, handsome cowboys, there were fearless frontiersmen and women who started the story of conquiring the west through Kentucky. Set in 1797, just after the Revolutionary War, men and women risked their lives, fortunes and futures for the quest of going west.
The Wyllie family is just one of many with the vision of what "could be" in the newly formed country. Join Stephen, his wife Jane and their daughters along with his brothers as they venture west from New Hampshire to Kentucky where the grass is plentiful and ranch land is ready to be tamed!
I honestly started to listen to this book a bit skeptical, but after about 10 minutes I was hooked! Dorothy weaves an amazing story of love, loss, hate, revenge, passion and destiny. Alan Ormond puts it all together in a beautiful naroration reading!
I would HIGHLY recommend Dorothy's series and Alens performance. I cannot wait for book two to come to audible. While you wait for book two's audible, go to Amazon and purchase New Frontier of Love.
This book is so beautiful written it's hard to believe it's actually fiction! The terrors the Wiley family face and conquer make me proud to be an American and honored to be connected to the strong settlers and brave pioneers of previous generations! Wonderful, heart wrenching, and honest this book is amazing!
