To Soar with Eagles

About the book: In the untamed and unforgiving desert of southeastern Utah, Mitch Westland and Edie Zimmer are among the Mormon settlers determined to make their homes amid the harshest of circumstances. Threatened by Indians, competing ranchers, and cattle rustlers, the young couple must prevail against man, nature, and their own fears in order to fulfill their dream of establishing a ranch—and a family—of their own. This sequel to the bestseller Only the Brave covers the time period of 1888 to 1919 and merges the story of Mitch and Edie with the author's continuing series Fire and Steel.

My review: I LOVE this great book! I love the way that it ties the Mitch and Edie Zimmer family into the rest of the series. I loved learning more about how life would have been for the pioneers living in the Monticello area during the late 1800's. 

I was kind of surprised when I started reading that this book went back in time from the last one I finished, The Storm Descends. I had just finished that one and was just a little confused as I started reading this one. But as soon as I realized that it was just continuing the story started in Only the Brave, I was okay.

I loved reading more about Mitch and Edie. They are great characters, I loved the way the author lets us see more about their life together and the things that they would have done. 

One of my very favorite parts is where the young ladies are riding horses and they get caught by their church leaders. The public apology had me laughing so hard.

This is a great book that you'll love reading! I can't wait for more of this series!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
