Enjoyable Christian romance with plenty of mystery, suspense, and historical flair.
A lovely young woman travels across frontier America in search of her twin. However, she is pursued by a man who wants to marry her against her will.
o Several plot twists that kept me guessing.
o Just enough history to be educational and rooted me in the setting.
o Pleasantly surprised by the elements of mystery and suspense in this romance.
o Short chapters that made this book easy to read at night.
o Cliffhanger endings at many of the chapter ends that made me wonder what would happen next (and admittedly often made me read an additional chapter at night).
o Personally, I would have liked additional details from a historical fiction perspective, but this book is primarily a romance, and the author stayed true to that.
o Strong promotion of Christianity starting about midway through the book. I'd found this at a book fair and had mistaken it for a historical fiction novel. In a few places, I felt like it crossed the line of preaching to the reader, but lovers of Christian fiction will likely see this as a strength. That said, the sections where this occurred were limited and seemed to remain mostly true to the time period and location.
I'd recommend this book to Christian audiences who enjoy romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. Great for book clubs!

I enjoyed reading this book because it was like watching good old western movie. There was a good balance of action, romance, humor, drama, and Christianity without anything being overdone. Men will enjoy this book too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book kept my interest the whole way through. I didn't want to put it down! The characters were real and there was just enough description to allow me to visualize them but not so much that I couldn't use my own imagination as well which is what I like. I highly recommend it to others! The spiritual message is evident without being preachy. a very clear Salvation message.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you like a great adventure with a clear inspirational message, this book really hits the mark. A "bridal train" in and of itself is full of anticipation and uncertainty. This book has an intriguing twist; a surprise close to the end that will keep most readers guessing. It is not a book stuffed with unimportant filler information. All the details laid out early on in the story wrap up and tie together nicely in the end. I truly enjoyed how "the gospel message" is woven in without being "preachy." A great inspriational experience for most anyone. Not many fiction novels can keep my attention and interest like this one did. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. - HBMWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Thank you, Margo for finally putting a book out there with a biblical and clear gospel. The storylines drew me into Sky's life, I could feel her frustration and her pain in her journey to find her sister. I sat down and read the book in one sitting (until about 2am) - just couldn't put it down! Am definetly recommending to all who enjoy historical fiction served up with the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ and His wonderful leading in our lives. "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee" rings true throughout.
Keep up the great work - am so looking forward to the next book!
In Christ - Cheryl
