A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon--from child to determined young adult to loving mother--she shares the turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that molded her and recalls the enduring love with cavalry officer Captain Jack Elliot that gave her strength and purpose.
I enjoyed this story, and found it difficult to put down at times. The only thing I hated about this is how predictable the love triangle and ending were. I would have given it 4-5 stars, if not for the bland ending. Through the entire book I kept waiting for the "other shoe to drop" for Sarah. Overall, there was something about Sarah and her love for her family that really drew me into the story. Admittedly, I will probably read the other two books to finish of the series. I gave it 3 stars and would recommend it to people who enjoy historical romance novels.
I give this 3 out of 5 stars.
