5.0 out of 5 starsA WESTERN WITH HEART!
Reviewed in the United States on November 23, 2017
This story centers around a man who tries to rebuild his life after having lost his wife and child during childbirth. After a stint in the army, he travels west where he meets and saves a family from disaster, and it is their relationship that forms the basis of this novel. The plot and character development are excellent, and you really feel the joy and pain that the characters experience as they endure the hardships that are so common in the 1860s. The one thing that impressed me the most is that in addition to being a Western, it is also a very heartwarming tale. This book is very well written, and I highly recommend it. Don't let this one slip through your fingers! Bravo!

I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced with a lot of action!! Lowell Volk has done a great deal of research in what it was like emmigrating to the West to make a new home. I loved the detail of how things were done each day yet it was not overdone with plenty of action throughout the book. There was some sadness but there was also hope. He portrays characters that no matter what obstacles they encountered their goals were attained. I have read 2 other of his Civil War Series which I would recommend also. I'm on the 3rd of that series now . Debbie
