This story is a great Western yarn that starts and ends on the Chisholm Trail. Eliza and Wyatt are childhood friends. An incident breaks them apart but they do not forget each other. A little deception, a few lies and the past looms.
The characters are well developed. Eliza is a bit headstrong and can make snap decisions. Wyatt is patient and has made a career for himself as detective John Brady. A likable secondary character is barely out of the nursery cousin Justine who follows Eliza around. She is nosy and proves that sometimes eavesdropping can be helpful.
The book would not be complete without a little mystery, excitement and romance, which are all done in a fresh way. I did not see some things coming! A very enjoyable book from the Daughters of the Mayflower series.
*I purchased a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.*I give this 5 stars. Light but strong faith thread.
