I was expecting something different from Gilbert Morris, I guess. It was a good plot, but I just thought it could be a little bit more realistic. A little too corny. An easy, light read that is fine for entertainment.
The story had good potential, but it was so similar to the other two books of Morris' Wagon Wheel Series. Many of the characters, plot twists and details are almost identical to the previous two books. If I had not read the two previous books, it would have been a great read.
