Publisher's Summary

Back by popular demand: The first novel in the romantic Orphan Train trilogy, Lily and the Major. It's the beloved historical classic about a woman who must choose between her family and her one true love, by number-one New York Times best-selling author Linda Lael Miller.

In his arms, she discovered how tender - and how bold - true passion could be....

Lily Chalmers wanted only two things from life: a farm of her own, and to find the sisters she hadn't seen since they were all little girls heading west on the orphan train. She certainly had no desire for a husband. Yet proud, innocent Lily had no idea what desire meant until she met Major Caleb Halliday, a man who could ignite her very being with a single touch.... a glance.... a whisper.

Sheltered in his arms, Lily rode the crest of a wild, helpless passion. And though she struggled against her own willful heart, she knew she could never choose between the dazzling man who had claimed her love so completely, and her bold, long-cherished dream.

Wearing female story line

So, I get it. Both lead characters are stubborn and the author’s spin was to convey submission via constant sex to drive out stubbornness in the female. However, I believe the author took it too far- to the point of female lead becoming foolish and silly....doing a disservice to the character that NEVER comes to a place of softening. I was worn out listening to her fool-Harding behavior. Just wanted the story to end so I could move on.

struggling with the characters

the storyline is fun, but I struggled to like the characters. Both main characters are overly stubborn & disrespectful of one another. Granted, I understand how or why their past experiences would make them broken, but I found myself exhausted listening to their persistent mela-dramatic power struggles.
