Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of my favorite of Joan's books, and i have read many. I'm definately in love with her Hawk's Way series and can't wait for more. This was the first historical of hers that i read and i absolutely loved it. I am a big fan of historical novels and but this one was one of the best. I love the western themes and i thought the family situation in this novel was great i laughed so much i was in tears. Patch was definately a favorite character and i loved the novel about her also. I wish i could give such high recomendations about some of joan's other historicals but i can't stand the ones about Earls and Dukes, i guess they're just not my thing. But this book is great for anyone who loves historicals, the old west,or joan johnston, or all of the above, Happy reading

This was my first western by Joan Johnston. It was good reading. The characters were so real. You could not help but feel Patches pain at the new family. She was a great charcter I can not wait for pay day so I can buy her story. Joan is now one of my top five authors.

Patch stole center stage! 8 Jan 2001
By Michelle Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although, the story is a good romance and has good character layout, I think Seth's daughter, Patch stole the center stage! I was more interested in learning about Patch and Ethan - The Outlaw, then the main characters. I think I'll pick up The Outlaw's Bride and find out what happens between the two...wink.

ONE OF THE MOST DECENT BOOKS THAT I HAVE READ 12 Sep 2006
By M. Hartmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
DECENT - no premarital sex [PMS]

As has been said, Patch stole the show. She sure was determined to defend her father, Seth Kendrick, against anyone who considered him a coward. <g>

Seth soon realized that his daughter needs the influence of a woman to help tame her down.

The mystery behind Ethan Hawk, who had shown up about 6 months ago, his friendship with Seth, and the advent of the Masked Marauder teased Patch. Was Hawk the Masked Marauder?

Where did he disappear to at times in the night? Where did he keep the big Black Stallion.

And when Seth found out Patch's knowledge of his visits to Dora at the Medicine Bow Saloon "to satisfy his manly lusts" that was too much, he knew she needed to be taken in hand.

Molly Gallagher has a son, Whit and a daughter, Nessie that she fails to tell Seth about. Of course Seth failed to tell Molly about Patch.

She needed a home for herself and her children - but what a hoot! Patch, 12 and Whit, 10 were bound and determined to hate each other and their parents marrying. There was trouble in the offing. And boots in the river.

Pike Hardesty was mean as a rattlesnake on a hot skillet and the reason that there was no law in Fort Benton. [hey, I could find that place on an old map] Learned a bit more about the Missouri River - didn't know it ended up in Montana.

Pike had it in for Seth and his daughter. He was also the hired killer for Drake Bassett, the man that was selling rotgut to the Indians. The Masked Marauder was working at putting Bassett out of business. Pike's job was to kill the Marauder.

This is a great plot all the way around - plenty of action - plenty of passion - loving or otherwise - keeps you in thralled with the characters - We need more authors with this quality.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED with no reservations -

A Wonderful Historical Western Romance... 28 Sep 2014
By terrylynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wonderful historical romance.... first released in 1992, it has made an appearance on the bookshelves of Target, Walmart, etc recently and of course is always available on Amazon. I picked it up because I love Joan Johnston and a good western historical romance and I got exactly what I was hoping for... a great read with great characters and a romance you can root for!

Determined to keep her young son from going to sea on a whaling ship, widow Molly Gallagher accepts the offer from a man in Montana to become his mail order bride. Dr. Seth Kendrick doesn't know that Molly is bringing two children with her, but that's ok because he also neglected to mention that he has a very tomboyish daughter who is against this whole marriage idea and who doesn't hesitate to make her unhappiness known. But through all the difficulties these two face with their kids plus trouble in town and Seth's determination to protect everyone the best he can, they know their little family is worth fighting for... even if both Seth and Molly have determined never to love again after losing their first spouses. The relationship between Molly and Seth is a work in progress and it's satisfying to watch them slowly but surely fall in love again.

It's just a great read with everything you need to stay engaged from the first page to the last... romance, danger, humor, family and learning that love can be even better the second time around. Five stars for Joan Johnston and The Barefoot Bride.
