The author once again takes the reader on an emotional journey that goes from one extreme to another. Very tastefully written conflicts in the story take the reader deeper into the savagery of unsettled America and all of its dangers. Parts of this story left me gasping as things took unexpected turns. My family was looking at me and asking me if I was ok. Once they realized I was reading the book they started laughing at my intense reactions. The author did a wonderful job of pulling me into the story and making me feel an attachment to the characters in the story. Do not feel like reading these books were a waste of time at all and I am planning on reading them again!
One caveat I will provide and is a SPOILER BUT MAY BE AN ISSUE FOR SOME READERS... the issue of rape is addressed in one way or another in each novel and most prominently in this one.
This last novel in the Saga was enjoyable and engaging. It definitely held my attention as they journeyed from New York to Boulder, Colorado. They met some unsavory characters, including several they procured as guides and one tribe of Indians. They met a gentleman, Cortland, toward the end of their journey, who assisted them in making it to their final stopping point: the homestead left to Margaret by her father. A home and piece of land that did not disappoint. Margaret gave it to Randall and Jaqueline, as she and Cortland were getting married and would be living on the adjacent property.
Many secrets are revealed and many truths accepted in this last novel. Witherton and Catherine return and Jacqueline and Randall play a prominent role in this novel, as well.
Margaret's looks was a major focus in this novel, as it was in the other two. It seemed to always lead to her being violated in one way or another, as a result. I was disappointed that this theme carried through all of the novels, but particularly for this last novel. I understand the premise the author was wanting to make. That certain events may lead us to lose our faith in God and getting that faith back is challenging and results in a lot of questions before one either turns away from or comes back to God. I felt that this could have been demonstrated in another way.
I enjoyed the relationship between Margaret and Cort. It was a very strong, respectful, and loving one. Henry was a great little addition despite being a mature talker at 6 and 7. He provided some humor and brought out the lighthearted side of anyone he was around.
I found this novel to be more interesting, overall, because it showed how they lived and enjoyed life in America without their titles and requirements of high society. It showed a different side of of all the characters, but particularly Margaret. She quickly recognized that she felt more at peace in Colorado than she did amongst the British and French aristocracy. At the end of the day, running her own home and horse farm left her feeling accomplished. And finally, she felt at peace, safe and secure: what she had always wanted.
Recommend to Historical and general romance readers. The author also has it categorized as a Christian novel.
