I am certainly not a romance novel kind of guy, but I found this to be an exciting western saga with touches of romance. It's certainly not your typical "cowboys & indians" book. I recommend this book for anyone who likes horses or the 1800's frontier.
Three of the main, male characters - Ian, Jamie, and Chase - are the types who love to have fun, stand for what's right, and are willing to fight for those they love. They are smart, funny, strong, courageous, and faithful. Two of the female characters - Faith & Jenny - are my kind or women! They are smart, determined, caring, strong-willed, yet considerate.
Without giving away the plot twists let me say that there are plenty of surprises in this book. To some I said, "Oh, no, not that." To others I said, "All right! Way to go!" The book has plenty of laughs and touching moments. There is not a lot of foul language or sexual content; but there is some.
From the beginning I liked the forbidden courtship of Faith & Ian. As the courtship blossoms to love they know that they must escape if they are to remain together. Their daring escape & marriage seals their commitment in their hearts. Starting a new life together brings good times & bad, but they persevere which causes their love for each other to grow stronger. Then along comes the children...
Twins Jenny & Jamie are handfuls taken individually, but together they feed off of each others' excitement & humor. They care for each other like few other siblings. They pester each other at times, but will defend each other to the last breath. Fate brings their relationship closer and closer.
Chase is the truest of friends. He is like a brother to Jamie & Jenny. Chase becomes attracted to Jenny, but he is reluctant to make it known because of his sense of honor and because of his commitment to true friendship - or maybe he's just one of those guys who needs to get a clue. Chase stays with them through the good times and bad - even the very bad times.
This novel beautifully describes the awkwardness of courtship, the love of romance, the bonds of friendship, the thrills of adventure, the sorrows of tragedy, and the joys of triumph.
There's plenty of good guys & bad guys. I think it would make an awesome movie.
