Publisher's Summary

Unspoiled by her beauty or wealth, Sarah Clarke travels an arduous journey by stagecoach to inherit the Arrow C cattle ranch left to her by the grandfather she never knew. However, the ranch foreman, a half-breed Indian called Storm, also claims legal ownership.

The rugged, impassioned young man arouses conflicting emotions in Sarah. Because her own father was killed by Indians, she is first frightened by Storm and his ranch hands. Yet fear quickly gives way to love as his tenderness and compassion stir her heart. Although Storm's kisses convince Sarah that he feels the same, he admits that he is betrothed to another. Infuriated, Sarah vows to stop Storm from entering a loveless marriage. But how?

Vividly evoking the danger and excitement of life in Texas in the 1800s, Forbidden Legacy is a captivating story of love, faith, and adventure.

Wonderful Legacy 🌼

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This story has grit, charm, and a lot of faith. It doesn't shy away from topics like racial prejudices and shows Christianity in an honest light. I especially enjoyed the character of Storm who is half Native American. I'm biased, however, because he totally reminded me of the love of my life who also happens to be half Native. This clean read is such a well written journey of life and love. I highly recommend. 💕

The narrator read fabulously. Every character was spot on. Looking forward to more of his narration. 👏

I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 😊

Finding Love

ALmost every story that the wonderful Barbara Goss writes, has so many wonderful messages that speak to the heart and soul. Although set many years past a lot of what this says is true today. That there are many prejudices where there should not be as we should all love one another.
Coming from wealth and a social life in Boston, Sarah Clarke takes a journey when she finds that her grandfather, who she had never met, left her a cattle ranch in Texas. Her escort is a half breed Indian called Storm. She is at first terrified of him and all the Indians that accompany their journey. But things begin to change slowly as the story unfolds.
With the wonderful spot on narration by Leon Nixon and the words of Barbara Goss, this story held me enthralled until the last page. Simply lovely.

Loving someone you can't. . . .

Sarah Clarke finds herself inheriting her grandfather's Texas ranch. There are a few problems though, one she is a city girl, two most of the cowboys who come to escort her to the ranch are Indians and her father was killed by Indians, and three, the "half-breed" foreman also claims ownership of the ranch.

Storm knows that he is the legal owner of the Arrow C ranch, he just cannot find the paper that states that fact. He wants nothing more than to find the paper and get rid of Sarah until he meets her. His heart quickly falls for this beautiful blond city girl as well as most of his cow hands.

Together Sarah and Storm fight prejudices, a long trip full of dangers both animal and human. The biggest difficulty for this couple is the connection they have for one another even though they both want the ranch for themselves no matter what.

I really enjoyed this book! It is one of Barb's best! Leon Nixon did a great job telling this story and his characters were wonderful! I look forward to listening to more of his narrations!

This book was given to me and this honest review is being given voluntarily.

Amazing story

Sarah has been told she inherited the Arrow C Cattle Ranch so she and her aunt are taken to her new home by a half-breed, Storm who has been running the ranch and who also thinks he has inherited it.
She has a fear of Indians and can't quite work out why she hasn't been attacked, scalped or even something worse by the ones she meets up with. Soon her attitude and understanding of them changes and she finds out for herself that they are a caring people.
Then she realizes that she has fallen in love with a man who is betrothed to someone else and the story tells of her utter frustration, newly acquired faith and handling of this awkward situation.
Throughout, Storm has been a pillar of strength and a very endearing person. Their relationship has changed and the feelings each has for the other grows and flourishes.
This amazing story of love and faith is written by Barbara Goss with such compassion that I felt quite emotional with each unfolding situation and loved every moment of it.
Leon Nixon was the perfect choice to narrate it and he was a pleasure to listen to.
An audiobook version was provided by the author at no cost and this is my honest and unbiased review.

Amended Prejudices

Sarah Clarke, a product of the elite society from the East inherits a ranch in Texas from her grandfather. She and her aunt begin a stagecoach trip to move to her new ranch, when they go as they go as they can, they are met by the ranch manager. She is informed by him that he and several of the ranch hands will escort her and her aunt on a trail drive to the ranch. She is very frightened by Storm as he is an Indian. She is even more scared when she finds out the party consists of Indians and a Mexican as she has nothing but disdain for these people. Of course along the way she becomes friends with most of them and her prejudices change, she also finds out Storm is a preacher. She develops feelings for Storm but he informs her he is to marry an Indian maiden. She can’t believe how her life has changed, she loves the ranch but is willing to give it to Storm so she doesn’t have have to see him marry another, who by the way is pregnant. This is a very intriguing story and you need it to see what happens to Sarah, Storm and Little Bird. Barbara Goss writes very captivating stories and Leon Nixon did a fine job narrating.

3.75/5 stars

Narrated by Leon Nixon
Run Time: 5 hrs and 2 mins
Genre: Christian historical-ish fiction
Summary:
Sarah Clarke travels with her aunt down from Chicago to Texas to take over the ranch her father left her. She’s in the company of Storm, who’s half-Indian.

Additional Comments:
• Things work out in the end, but the main character annoyed me for about 1/3 of the book. It shows some decent development but made that first section tough to get through. I almost outright quit listening.
• With stories like this there’s a man and a woman main character, but I was sort of surprised that a man narrated it, since most of it focused on Sarah. It’s fine. He did a nice job, just a surprising choice.
• Sarah and Storm’s relationship is kind of all over the place. There’s a bit of deception involved, but it didn’t bother me this time.
• I loved the mother’s way of fixing furniture.
• I liked the addition of the other few antagonists. Not sure their threads wrapped up as nicely, but it’s fine. Can’t win ‘em all.

Conclusion:
Barbara Goss writes formula Christian romance stories. You basically know what you’re going to get every single time. If they’re your cup of tea, you won’t be disappointed. Boy meets girl. One may/may not be Christian and a hot mess. By the end both are Christian and they’re either married or engaged to be married.

Enjoyed this

Author gives a good lesson about forming opinions about people based on their race, looks, etc. Also on learning to see the good in others and learning to trust them and God. Truly a heartwarming read/listen. Author Goss has a way of making us examine ourselves and any preconceived prejudice that we may hold.

The narrator did a very good job bringing the story to life.

Emotional clean love story

I really enjoyed this story of adventure, perils of the settlers, racial prejudice and acceptance, betrayals, and most of all romance and love. Barbara Goss does an outstanding job of character development. When Sarah first goes out West she has several prejudices concerning people who aren't as sophisticated as her. But with her aunt's guidance and her experiences we see a great change in Sarah. Storm is a big influence in her life. I wish he was in my life. Leon Nixon does an amazing job of portraying the emotions and personalities of these characters. He is so much fun to listen to and brings the characters to life. I highly recommend this Audible book.
