Publisher's Summary

With over two million copies of her books in print, Lori Wick consistently tops the Christian best-selling fiction lists. Delighting fans with her versatility, she transports readers sometimes to Victorian England, sometimes to the American frontier, and always into the minds and hearts of her characters.

In the summer of 1882, Dakota Rawlings, Texas Ranger, is still recuperating from an ambush that nearly killed him. Not yet fit for duty, the bored ranger eagerly accepts the opportunity to escort his boss’ beautiful daughter, Darvi, to the train station in Aurora. The trip won’t be difficult, and he’ll get to share his newly found faith with her. But Darvi is kidnapped from the train and held hostage, and Dakota must singlehandedly solve the mystery of her disappearance and stage a daring rescue. Surrounded by a world of shady quests for money and power, Darvi and Dakota inspire listeners with their burgeoning love and faith. Ed Sala’s expert narration evokes a sense of nostalgia as he brings this fragment of the old Wild West to life.

Not typical

I’ve read most of Lori Wicks books and enjoyed most of them. The absurdity of this story line was a disappointment. Without divulging the plot I’m not at liberty to go into detail, but suffice it to say a situation could have been resolved in a paragraph rather than going on and on.

Actually book 2 in series

Dak and Darvi are fun. The spiritual growth they experience in dealing with eachother as they learn to live their lives in a more Christ-centered way in insightful and pure Wick. The characters surounding them also make the story's magic more real.

A fun inspiring read that will make you think about those around you and how you interact with them.

Great story, really enjoyed

Did not like the narrator at all, but wasn't too distracting from a great story
