  • About the book:It is 1878 and the Caldwells and Wainwrights have been feuding for decades. Still, Sarah Caldwell has misgivings when her father pressures her into distracting a ranch hand while he and her brothers rob the Wainwright place. When it becomes clear that hand is actually Cord Wainwright, Sarah realizes she needs to lay low. But Cord spots her in town and, with the sheriff away, makes a citizen's arrest, dragging her off to the Wainwright ranch until the sheriff's return. As the feud boils over, Cord and Sarah make a most inconvenient discovery--they are falling in love. Can they betray their families for love? Or will their families betray them?

    Against the beautiful and wild backdrop of the Rocky Mountains comes this sweeping saga of romance, betrayal, and forgiveness from beloved author Kathleen Morgan.

    My Review:
    I thought this was an okay Christian Historical Fiction book. I never really got Cord and Sarah's romance. There were several sensual scenes in the book that I thought did not belong and would not have been missed. Other than that the writing was okay and the plot line was interesting. For some reason I was happy when I finished this one and it was not a bad book. The main theme is forgiveness and it comes across without being preachy. If you like Christian historical fiction then you might like this one. :)
