Overview

When newly widowed Hattie Rommel chooses a second husband, she doesn't expect him to fulfill her most secret dreams. She just wants him to take her to Oregon. Emmet Lachlan marries Hattie with the understanding that he will be free to leave her behind, once she is safely in Oregon. He is a wandering man, not a settling-down farmer. Then an old trapper bequeaths them a map to a valley where gold lies on the ground for the taking. While Emmet and Hattie gather the gold, they also discover each other. Even lost in love's magic, they both know it cannot last. When they run afoul of murderous renegades, they must flee across untamed mountains to the hidden valley Hattie calls Cherry Vale. In the home she's always longed for, Emmet discovers a peace he's never sought. The end of summer means they must resume their interrupted journey. Can Hattie leave the only place that's ever felt like home? And if she does, will Emmet give up looking for what's on the far side of the hill?

I did not want this book to end. From the beginning to the end, I enjoyed every minute of the story. As Hattie and Emmet's love grew along with their heroic struggle to survive, I was enchanted. This one's a keeper!

JBG's story line is taut, round, and believable. The book rings with understanding of the trail and settling life before electricity. Her characters deal smartly with with challenge and maintain your desire to know them better. Glad's vocabulary is precise and clearly opens views of the time, terrain, personalities and circumstance. The love scenes are muscled, satiny, and inviting; it is OK to look! This writer makes sure that the reader realizes the shock absorbtion quality of corn meal, the crushing justice of a rock slide and the repose of a safe view.
