The story had to be told as it was. The questions left from Ruthless Heart had to be answered. What happened to mean first husband Joshiah? Did Angeline grow a spine? Did she get over her first love Johnathan? Who did she end up with? Did she ever see her sister again? All these and more were answered in this book. There just was too much info crammed into the pages.
On the other hand, the story moved quickly both in plot line and location. The character development was very good. I loved the hero Sam Carver. He knew what he wanted from the very first of the book. And he did what he had to to get there. He became a bit wishywashy toward the end when the Denver story came into play. Angel how ever stepped up and supported him. My favourite character was the hero Sam and the hobo Jessup. An enjoyable read. I will be reading Endless Heart next because I want to know about what happens to Lettie. I worry about her.
