A story with all the elements of a great western . . . a wagon train, a flooded river, gun fighters, Texas Rangers . . . and the girl . . . When Ruthi..Show More »e MacNeil survives the ill-fated river crossing that leaves the rest of her party dead and is rescued by Luke Stone, she could never imagine how her life would change . . . and Luke, headed home to Texas, following the Civil War, has one thing on his mind: Reclaiming the ranch stolen from him and avenging the murder of his father. I fell in love with the gentle, yet honest writing style of Mary Connealy in Swept Away . . . and with the folks making their homes and lives in Texas . . . there is an under girding of faith and conviction in Luke and his friends who are fighting to reclaim his ranch . . . and Rosie (Ruthie) who has been abused and used by the family who took her in after her parents died, is finding that she can once again trust people. An element of subtle romance does not overshadow the overall story of life and comradeship in the emerging settlement of a young and growing Texas. An excellent listen.
