Editorial Reviews

Anonymous Reviewer
Glad's western tale of love is fraught with danger. A wily and mysterious old woman and a mountain lion named Buttercup are highlights. But deadly accidents and quirky characters take a backseat to affairs of the heart in this delightful tale of love.' 4 stars!

...Glad has done her research here. She has delved into the field of botany and made it interesting and accurate to the best of my knowledge. She writes of the wilderness and Idaho territory as if she was born and raised during that time, long ago. This is a fine novel, full of intrigue, laughter and best of all romance. 4 Stars!
