The war was over. The town of Esser Crossing ebbed closer to a slow death while Jodi Parker and Hunter Johnson fought desperately with one last chance to save it, and themselves.

Two unlikely people came together against their own will and struggled to carve a new empire. Swollen rivers and Jayhawkers were the least of their troubles on a cattle drive to Kansas, when both carried secrets that could easily destroy them. He had to prove himself, she had to live with her own decisions.

A cruel destiny threw them together. Only a true and lasting love could save them

This is another great story from author, Rita Hestand.
I would have given this book more than 5 if allowed.

What happens when you put the coward of the town in charge of a cattle drive? Then hamper him with a reluctant pregnant woman and misfits no one else wants. Toss in the danger of Jayhawkers, stampedes, and raiding Indians and you have a story that won't quit.

Rita Hestand mixes all of these elements and conflicts into a historically factual, emotionally packed account of a cattle-drive. But she doesn't stop there. We get to know Jodi and Hunt personally and care deeply for them as well as for many of the hands on this journey with them. Personal fears and intense concerns are mingled among a sometimes tender, often tumultuous romance throughout the book.

One of the very best books Ms. Hestand has offered. A truly artistic creation that will touch everyone's heart.
