Reviews

"Set just after the U.S. Civil War, this passionate opening volume of a projected series successfully melds historical narrative, women's issues, and breathless romance with horsewomanship, trailside deer-gutting, and alluring smidgeons of Celtic ESP." —Publishers Weekly

"There is a lot I liked about this book. It didn't pull punches, it feels period, it was filled with memorable characters and at times lovely descriptions and language. Even though there is a sequel coming, this book feels complete." —Dear Author 

"With a sweet romance, good natured camaraderie, and a very real element of danger, this book is hard to put down." —San Francisco Book Review
