I found it a great read. I really didn’t like Ellie to start with - she’s so sure her way is the right way and everyone else should do as she wishes. Thomas is also stubborn and he doesn’t want everything handing to him, he expects to work hard to earn his way in the world and to enable him to earn the respect of others. Such stubborn folk mean the story is going to involve plenty of drama and I wasn’t disappointed. The author’s fluent writing style takes the reader back to the 1800s with her characters and into this very different era. The angst and turmoil following the death of Ellie’s father and how Thomas reacts is brilliantly portrayed, making it easy to relate to Thomas in his endeavours. It is a very enjoyable story which I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys their romances set in a different era - especially anyone who has, like me, enjoyed other stories set in Marietta, Montana!
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
If you have read any of Montana Born Books' Marietta based books, you will recognize the name Sheenan. This is the story of the first Sheenan to move to Montana in 1890.
Ellie Burnett's father was going to pass away soon and she needed a husband to help take care of their ranch. By marrying Thomas Sheenan, she could keep the ranch, in return Thomas would also get what he wants, wealth.
Thomas didn't want a relationship. He didn't want to be married or have a family. When he left Ireland to start a new life, it didn't include settling down. Ellie found Thomas to be attractive, but very stubborn and controlling. But through their ups and downs, they found a way to fall in love.
I really enjoyed learning more about Marietta in the early days and found Ellie and Thomas's story to be enjoyable. I liked how they were both stubborn and set in their ways, but when it came down to it, they were there for each other, especially when Thomas was trying to pull Ellie out of mourning for her father and back to enjoying life again.
Ellie is desperate for a husband because her father is dying and she will be left vulnerable if he passes before she is married. Thomas Sheenan doesn't ever want to get married, but he respects Ellie's father, and is attracted to Ellie, so when she proposes a business deal type marriage, he accepts.
I loved the emotions in this story. Ellie goes through quite the rollercoaster from marriage to her father's death, to the aftermath of that while adjusting to married life. Thomas is a good man and has experienced enough loss in his life that he is very protective of Ellie, but she is very strong willed and stubborn so they certainly have some interesting spats.
I loved the characters and storyline. It was a nice escape from reality.
Loved, loved this book!! Great characters that I fell in love with. Elle is so strong willed, use to getting her way, " daddy's little girl". Thomas, lost so much in his life, he is not about ready to give up on this ranch. My favorite part was the combing of Elle's hair, brought tears to my eyes. Jane Porter knows how to transport you into a different time period with her storytelling. I highly recommend this book.
This is Ellie and Thomas's story. I felt transported back to the 1800's. The characters tugged at my heart and I became emotional invested in their lives and wanted so much for them to get their happily ever after. I was not ready for the book to end and could have easily read more.
If you have loved the contemporary series of The Sheenans by Jane Porter, you will enjoy this bit of history behind the relatives of the Sheenan's.
After reading so many books about Marietta in the present, this is the second set in its beginnings, and it was so interesting to see more of Marietta and it's surrounding areas in the early days.
Jane Porter delivers another book that I just couldn't put down.
