A Ruth Ryan Langan Historical Romance Classic.
Abby Market and her family join a wagon train heading West, leaving behind all that is familiar.
A gunman named Rourke, a loner, a battle-scarred Union veteran, hires on to guard the wagon train to its final destination, California. Rourke finds himself drawn against his will to the tough, determined Abby.
Across the miles, as they face the perils of death, disease and attack by those who would destroy them, Abby and Rourke band together to survive, and discover a love as fierce as the land itself. But when Rourke's bitter past threatens to destroy them, they must do everything in their power to survive, even at the cost of the love they have come to treasure above all else.
One of the most unique western love stories I’ve ever read. This is 3 love stories in one with more emphasis on Abby and Rourke. This book seems more realistic then most of the old west romances I’ve read. Loved it.
Emotional roller coaster. Held me spellbound until the quirky end. To experience your own feelings of pleasure, astonishment, fear, laughter and tears please read!
Really enjoyed this book. I’m sure I will enjoy her other books as well.
