About the book: Beautiful Lily Branson learns that her wayward father has lost his Wyoming cattle ranch in a card game to handsome cowboy Jack Sinclair, no less! When a series of deadly winter storms sets in, Lily and Jack must work together to save the cattle—as well as their hearts.
My review: Carla Kelly has done it again! I love the way she writes this kind of a story, Carla Kelly is really a master at writing a character that you want to root for and care about. Lily is that kind of a character. I felt for her as she is sent away from the home she knew in England with her uncle because she is half black and he wants to marry a woman of high society. I felt for her as she arrived in dusty, dirty Wyoming, a well-bred Englishwoman unused to the manners and customs of Americans. I felt for her as that Wyoming winter started early, trying her in a way that nothing else could. I loved the way she remained strong and was able to care for the children she was charged with teaching. I loved the way she fell in love with those children, and the way she was able to heal each of them. I really enjoyed this book, it helped me to go from my life now to Wyoming in the 1800's. This is another amazing book from Carla Kelly that you won't want to put down before you've devoured the very last word!
