Union army officer Cameron Scott is used to being obeyed, but nothing about this journey to Lake Tahoe has gone as expected. He's come to fetch his daughter and nephew, and seek revenge on the people who killed his brother. Instead he finds himself trapped by a blizzard with two children who are terrified of him and stubborn but beautiful Gwen Harkness, who he worries may be trying to keep the children.
When danger descends on the cabin where they're huddled, Cam is hurt trying to protect everyone and now finds Gwen Harkness caring for him too. He soon realizes why the kids love her so much and wonders if it might be best for him to move on without them. When she sees his broken heart, Gwen decides to help him win their affection--and in the process he might just win her heart as well.
The author, Mary Connealy, builds the tension in this novel incrementally from start to finish. Her fabulous writing carries the reader along keeping us flipping pages.
In this story, two children, a boy Ronnie and a girl Maddie Sue, together with a group of committed Christian men and women, and the rugged setting of the high Sierra Nevada mountains come together to form a novel worth reading. The children star as totally authentic little ones. The manly men, especially the hero Cam, provide the perfect foil for the evil, yet cowardly desperado, Raddo. The utterly feminine women, especially the heroine Gwen, exhibit heroic traits of bravery as well as tenderness in caring for the children, the men, and each other. The dog, named Wolf for the wild half of his pedigree, figures into the action in a very real way. Dog lovers are going to cheer for him and love him by the end! Taken together, this is a not to be missed read. The end is absolutely riveting!
That's all the clues I'm leaving for the reader of this review. You'll just have to read the book for yourself to find out more. Happy reading!
