Dianne and Cole Selby have worked hard and now have the largest, most prosperous cattle ranch in the area, but for how long? Their family and friends are large, happy, close and safe, but can and will it last?
Evil lurks and continues seemingly unchecked in the form of Portia and Chester, a couple so greedy and jealous they will stop short of nothing, even multiple murders if necessary. They are determined to drive out the Selbys even if they have to lie, cheat and do horribly evil things. Chester has two of his sons working with him and of course his biggest asset of all is his wife (or is she really a liability?). A big surprise comes from two of the evil family's children. The reader will enjoy the challenge this brings.
Ardith has finally found love and happiness, but can she keep it? Takes Many Horses has a life changing experience as does the oldest Chadwick son, Trenton. However, probably the biggest, most suspenseful moment comes when Trenton suddenly is done away with very suspiciously.
Dianne is having a hard time allowing Cole to be the head of her home, the leader of the ranch. She is so strong willed that she has nearly cost them their marriage, but can she learn? WILL she even try? Tracie keeps the reader on the edge of their seats!
Tracie has managed to incorporate many different races, cultures and surprises in this book in spite of the historical and spiritual emphasis. The Indians still face problems and are now living on reservations to which many of them recoil. I can see several more books in this series.
Thanks again, Tracie Peterson.
