Editorial Reviews

Stella Cameron
..memorable, and moving ... a special story.
Elizabeth K. Burton
..a fast-paced, deeply moving story of friendship and dedication that is totally entertaining...a must-read for anyone who enjoys well-researched, expertly told historical fiction full of unique characters and action that keeps the reader on the edge of the seat from first page to last.
Astrid Kinn
..a beautiful and touching romance...a fascinating account of life in the 19th century in the Boise Basin during the heart of its gold rush...this tale is wondrously unique, extremely well written and filled with emotion. I simply could not put it down. The main characters are well developed and realistic, despite their hero-like qualities. No American Western romance would be complete without some adventure and a villain or two, and this story more than delivers on that front as well.
