    Check this one out!

    If you're a historical romance fan, pick up this book. Jessica Hale was a heroine with depth and spunk, and I loved her from the first moment. This story has a good message, fun, unique characters, and it never got dull. The events on and off the ranch were always adventurous. Some of the crazy events included mustangs, bad guys, and the occasional lassoing (and tying up). Just when I thought I could put it down for the night, something else unfolded. I ended up staying up until I finished the whole thing.

    While most books like this focus only on romance, this one's plot is based on the Civil War and real events occurring in the US during that time. It brought in historical accuracies and still had all the romance. You can't beat that! So if you're into historical romance, this one deserves to be in your permanent book collection!

    Wonderful

    Jess and Jakes story is a very sweet romance that takes place in the Sierra Nevada's during the Civil War. This 275 page story takes you on an emotional rollercoaster, which through great storytelling, makes it impossible to put down. This is book one of a trilogy.

    A beautiful story you must read!

    Love's Rescue is book one in The Sierra Chronicles and the first book I've read by Tammy Barley.
    I can think of only one other author who's book I've read that I've enjoyed as much. Tammy writes her story in such a familiar way that you find yourself considering the characters friends. Jess and Jake are the two main characters. Jake Bennett is as good as it gets when it comes to men. He will melt your heart from the first time you meet him and leave you daydreaming about finding such a man in your own life. He gives of himself completely even though he has suffered great loss. You'll also fall in love with all the ranch hands and friends that Jess makes along the way.
    The book is packed full of adventure, heartache, humor, joy and love. I was amazed at each clever twist in the plot. I sobbed, I laughed, I cheered for my friends...I hated to close the book each night and eagerly looked forward to my next chance to read again.
    Jess finds herself drowning in grief and the only person who can save her is Jake. His faith in God and patient ways actually save her several times over. This story includes kidnap, fires, raids, rescues, runaways, heartbreak, prisons and a myriad of other dramatic events that never seem overdone. It confronts the culture clash between North and South as well as between the Native American people and whites. I can't even imagine the amount of research the author had to do to make this story so authentic.
    She writes so honestly that the characters really find a place in your heart.
    This is a Christian Romance and if that makes you leary for some reason, don't let it. You are not going to get beat over the head with references to God. Instead his message will blend into the pages seamlessly and beautifully leaving you feeling full of hope as well as answering some of the deep questions we have about life and death.
    This is not "just another romance" novel. My goodness--it's oh so much more! This beautiful love story is intertwined with so much depth that I don't even know as though it could be classified as merely a romance.
    Western and Historical it is indeed and as I mentioned before--Tammy does an amazing job with her research and attention to detail.

    The only negative thing I can say about this book is that it comes to an end....but with book number two waiting for my on my nightstand right now I guess I can't complain.

    I wholeheartedly recommend Love's Rescue. I can't think of how anyone could not enjoy it.

    An Unforgettable Story of Love and Loyalty

    Set in the Nevada Territory during the War Between the States, Tammy Barley's debut novel tells an unforgettable story of love and loyalty, hatred and healing and the true meaning of family and friendship. Like the blanket her heroine weaves, Love's Rescue blends fascinating details of Paiute culture, well-placed moments of humor and heart pounding drama to create a beautiful portrayal of a woman's struggle to survive after tragedy.

    I am in the minority but I just couldn't finish this. The heroines behavior and mindset completely ruined this for me.

    This is a great, well-written and clean novel about tragedy, adventure, relationships and romance.
    The time frame is during the Civil War. Jess's beloved brother and best friend is disowned by his father for turning away from their new western home and family business to defend thier home and property in Kentucky by fighting fr the Confederacy.
    Jess maintains close contact with him until suddenly the letters stop. In desperation she goes to the city to send a telegram when trouble breaks out.
    This is a time of great upheaval and intolerance of others yet good people existed and accepted others whose views and lifestyles were different. Jess was fortunate to find that type of environment during great tragedy.
    The plot was slightly dragged out and the ending was weak but the story was great and, again, well-written

    Beautifully written - heart wrenching - must read!

    I have never read a book that pulled me in like this book did. There never seems to be a dull moment. It is emotion packed, and you can almost feel the character's pain in your own being. I found it very easy to envision everything that happened in this novel. I cried several times throughout the book, which is not a usual thing for me. Just a beautifully written, emotional, heroic story. It is a must read, and I will most likely read it again.

    Wonderful

    I really enjoyed this one! All the ranch happenings were really fun to read about and didn't get so detailed that you were bored. The way Tammy skipped long periods of time was very well written. Since this book takes place over a few years, she couldn't include all the day-to-day occurrences; I think she wrote the book in a way that the gaps weren't missed and it was still easy to follow the storyline. The civil war era is one of my favorites to read about, and this book didn't disappoint. I loved the way Tammy wrote the cowhands! They are now some of my favorite characters. I especially loved how gentle and protective they were with Jess. It was too sweet! I'm now very anxious to read book two. ;) Congrats to Tammy Barley for this great read!

    Quite Good Reading

    I enjoyed this book. It has a lot of very interesting parts and I truly did want to keep reading it. There were just a few things about it that frustrated me, like why the main character continued to blame the male character for the death of her father. He did try to hold him back from the fire, but her father broke away and entered the burning building anyway. For that, she blamed the male character throughout the book? Parts of the book seemed too unrealistic to me, I'm sorry. But overall, it was a good book. For really good reads I would recommend Tracie Peterson, Karen Kingsbury, Sharlene MacLaren, Tamera Alexander, Kim Vogel Sawyer, Julie Lessman.
