    Funny story with a happy ending!
    Starts out scary with Cassie standing on her husbands grave as women hungry men maul her while trying to make her choose her next husband. Enter Red to the rescue. He marries her and brings her home and Cassie the sheltered and battered widow who has never been allowed to have a single thought of her own learns to become a ranchers wife. Fun reading all the way.

    Another book I picked up and just couldn't put down

    Cassie's husband took the easy way out.

    Well, now, that's not exactly true. He may have left her without teaching her anything about the life or chores of the ranch but he's left her with the ranch he bought with her money. He left her in Montana with beautiful silk dresses, of course, they can't be worn when milking a cow. He made sure that she was never seen anything a 'lady' wouldn't do including talking to the lowly. Then again, no one in Montana ever measured up t his standards so she had no friends. He let her pregnant but without protection.

    Worst of all, he left her completely unprepared. Cassie wasn't prepared to saddle a horse and ride to town for help because he didn't think riding was ladylike. He made sure to tell Cassie what he wanted to be buried in, how she was to dress, and how much to pay the gravedigger but he forgot to mention how she was to pay him. He forgot to mention that the single men in the area would literally fight over her at his graveside service or that she'd be married again with hours of his death while standing on his grave. He also forgot to mention that he'd mortgaged everything they owned - even her family bible, family portraits, and clothes - and hadn't even begun to pay.

    What a way for Cassie to start her new life - in shock.

    Delightful and Engaging!

    I thoroughly enjoyed "Montana Rose." It is definitely reminiscent of the author's acknowledged inspiration, "Love Comes Softly", but with a flavor all its own. The characters were dynamic and believable, and the integration of religion seamless, as is so rare in many purported Christian novels. Even the supporting characters had strong presences in the story, despite its obvious focus on the relationship between Red and Chrissy. I look forward to reading the remainder of stories that were only partially fleshed out in Montana Rose.

    M. Connealy's writing style is memorable and engaging, and I don't think I'll spoil anything by saying that the chapter that focuses on Cassie's labor is one I will never forget!!
