“Loved this! The author knew how to keep a reader completely engrossed from beginning to end. Characters were great, plot interesting and gripping, and the ending was completely satisfying - although there's still one more thread that definitely will be tied up in the last book of this trilogy.
Cordelia (Dee) McQueen is bartered by her family of menfolks to marry Dallas Leigh, whose dream is to have a son, for water rights. She's been kept from life outside of her home for years, thinks Dallas is cruel and unthinking, and finds just the opposite once she's part of his family. In the weeks before he makes her truly a wife, she begins to realize she has deeper feelings for him. But life has some cruel blows to deal to both people - and it will take more than a strong will to come out the other side okay. ”
