the early 1860’s. This is a small town that
houses some of the Pony Express riders.
The story centers around Wyeth Bowles. He
rides for the Pony Express as a means of
supporting his widowed mother and her other
children. He is a dedicated rider with no
intentions of settling down. That is until the
new banker’s daughter, Ottille (Tillie) Weston
and her father arrives in town with her French
instructor who acts like her jailer at first.
There is undeniable chemistry the instant
Wyeth and Tillie meet. But he has nothing to
offer Tillie except love compared to the man,
Captain Merrick got her father has honed in
on Tillie marrying.
Trials, tribulations and frustrations overcome
Wyeth but his friends have faith that he will
work things out.
In addition to the main love story, there is a
humorous courtship happening with the stage
coach driver wooing the French instructor.
When Wyeth’s mother arrives in town, she goes
to meet with Tillie’s harden father. The meeting
makes for an emotional, very well scripted scene.
A mesmerizing, superbly written story of
historical western fiction. The vivid descriptions
allow you to be right there with the characters.
You will fall in love with both the main characters
and the supporting characters.
A highly recommended read!!!
I volunteered to read this book. Thanks to the
the author for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.
Wyeth Bowles had to grown-up early and took responsibility for his mother and younger siblings when his father took ill and passed away. Learning more about the Pony Express and the pay, he chooses to leave home and become a rider for the Express, and through letters home to his family, he will also send financial support. He actually joked with Ransom and Clay about falling in love and marrying, and when Luke teases him that he is next, he scoffs at that idea.
The Weston come to the Wyoming territory from Boston to add a branch in the Weston family banking. He will have a large home built, and part of his plan is to find a husband for Ottille, one with hopefully money and clout. Setting his eyes on Captain Merrick, he deems him a good choice for his daughter.
Tillie is excited about the new move, especially knowing there will be a home. She travels with a companion, Mademoiselle Dubois, whose job includes teaching her French, and how to be a lady. Tillie is fascinated with the town and making the acquaintance of Olivia and Anna Hawkins.
The plot will have Wyeth meeting Tillie in the Hawkin’s home and be knocked for a loop. His vow of not falling for a woman like Ransom and Clay changes when he sees Tillie. It is a “love-at-first-sight” moment for him, and she is quite taken with him too. “Wyeth hadn’t just fallen fast; he’d fallen, tumbled, twisted, and lost his devil-may-care attitude, all because of her gentle smile and the sound of her voice.”
There is plenty of angst and issues when Mr. Weston gets involved, and his blatant intentions for Tillie with Captain Merrick are made known. While she and the captain have a pleasant conversation and challenging game of chess, their affections are as friends only. How far will her father go to continue to control her life? Threatening to send her back to Boston, for the first time in her life, Tillie will make a stand and defy him.
With the help of friends, a way is made for Tillie to remain in Three Rivers. Wyeth and Tillie chose to court and get to know each other, but deep down, they have already fallen hard. “ I have fallen—for you. It took all of one look and the space of a heartbeat, and I was yours.” What will happen between her relationship with Wyeth and herself and a future? Will her father’s stubbornness destroy their relationship? Sometimes it takes wise words of wisdom from a stranger for a hardened heart to crack and mend a riff.
This is a sweet, clean historical based story of new beginnings, that has ordinary people who accept the extraordinary challenges of life. I look forward to the next book in this series.
This is a beautifully written story of love and hope set in the burgeoning Pony Express era. Ms. Torres writes with such talent, heart, and sweetness that even if sweet and clean historical books aren't your usual chosen genre, you will find yourself absolutely entranced by the setting and falling in love with the characters. Although all of Reina Torres' books are beautifully written, there is something incredibly special that happens when her books are set set in this time period – her wording and phrases are always so beautiful that I find myself highlighting dozens of turns of phrase that strike me as incredibly pretty or special. Not every author who writes in this time period can do it justice, but Reina Torres does every single time.
Another thing that Ms. Torres does well is writing likable characters. I absolutely adored Wyeth from the very start. His letter home to his family was so sweet and so humorous that it was obvious that he was going to be the kind of romance novel hero that I love, and he didn't disappoint. He was utterly charming, and his devotion to Tillie was adorable, even when he made decisions that were perhaps a bit hasty (bordering on boneheaded). Tillie was wonderful as well, and I absolutely loved seeing her mature and become a strong woman despite the barriers she faced. Her interactions with Charlie while waiting for the train, while just a teeny tiny part of this book, reinforced just what a special person she is. As always, there is a slew of characters in the town that are wonderful and add so much to the story without overwhelming it. I loved the little look at Ransom and Delia's life now, it made me sigh happily. There is also a slight secondary love story that was unexpected but so sweet that it made me smile as it unfolded. I very much hope that Captain Merrick finds his happily ever after before this series ends.
I highly recommend this book – and this entire series - to anyone who enjoys a sweet story that is set in a fabulous town with really great characters. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.
