From the moment the two main characters meet, there is an instant attraction. The primary story involves Christy's inner turmoil regarding providing for her family, but the love interest subplot is never far from thought. When she decides to take a job once more as a bar room girl, she meets and befriends Sara, a young saloon prostitute desperate for a new life.
Invariably, the most memorable and endearing scenes involve Sara and her interactions with the other characters. The women in the story are often portrayed as princesses to be rescued, and Nevada is the gallant prince riding to defend their honor. In one particularly touching scene, Nevada risks his own reputation to save Sara from a night at the mercy of a customer. He demonstrates the biblical principle of love as described by this verse: "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails" (1 Corinthians 13:6-8).
With each chapter, the point of view alternates between Christy and Nevada, but Sara, too, occasionally shares the spotlight. The writing is easy to understand, although the old western dialect might catch some readers off guard. Religious references are sprinkled into the plot with little subtlety. The characters are new Christians who have little depth to their faith. Whereas all the characters are likeable and realistically imperfect, many of their reactions are predictable. However, each time I had decided that the plot could not surprise me, the story would often twist in completely unexpected ways and I would gleefully realize that the author had a few tricks up her sleeve.
Hopeless romantics of any age will enjoy this book -- it's effortless to read and has a satisfying conclusion. Andrea Sanders, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
