This was such a powerful book! Five years ago, Katherine and Samuel were good - or so it seemed. But then he left.
Now he's back.
And things will never be the same...ever again! Katherine isn't so sure that Sam's being back is a good thing. He broke her heart and left her pregnant. Now he wants to return to their husband and wife status. She has something big standing in her way, and doesn't want to end up pregnant and alone.
This isn't just a Pioneer book. It's a true western with a couple great shoot-outs, lots of suspense and action, and some great old-fashioned romance thrown in! The topic of sex was introduced (after all, they were a married couple), but very few details were given "(the most given was that he fell asleep after being with her). I thought the book was sweet and things were resolved nicely.
