Can a woman held captive by her family make it back to the one man she knows she can trust?
When Sarah Montgomery's father succumbs to his long illness, Sarah is faced with a life-altering choice: submit to her brother's will and marry the deceptive Ben Croftner . . . or escape through the dangerous American West to reclaim the heart of her beloved Rand Campbell at Fort Laramie, Wyoming.
From captivity in her family's home, Sarah makes her decision--and begins the perilous journey to Wyoming by train.
But even in the company of Rand's brother, Sarah does not receive the reception she had hoped for. The necessity of a military wife has preempted her, and Rand is already engaged to Jessica DuBois, the seductive daughter of the post commander. With her heart broken and her life in ruins, Sarah has no choice but to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . the obsessive Ben Croftner has just shown up in Wyoming.
This is the second installment of the 'journey of heart' series. In this book I felt sad for Sarah. She lost Rand once and then found him again, only to watch him leave her without a thought. Her Dad succumbed to illness and expressed his last wish for Sarah to fight for Rand. She went towards Rand only to find him engaged with Jessica DuBois. She was heartbroken and lonely. I got emotionally attached with Sarah.
I’m falling for this 'the journey of heart ' series; I always love 'parting and meeting' tales and this is one of such kind. The story as well as the characters seem real. The cover of the book is elegant and rich in design. I understand Sarah’s character, but I’m yet to understand Rand. I’m hoping to get acquainted with Rand in the coming series.
Colleen Coble is a promising author. I love her writing style and waiting read more from her. I’ll give it 4 out of 5 stars for the story and writing style of the author. I’ll definitely recommend it to those, who love contemporary romance genre with a little melodrama.
