Family feuds affect generations of innocent family and friends, and the long-standing, often violent disagreement between the Caldwells and Wainwrights has dangerously entangled Sarah Caldwell with Cord Wainwright. Under house arrest for aiding her father and brothers during a recent heist, Sarah's confinement on the Wainwright ranch does little to settle any argument between the two families and has the strong willed beauty confounding the hot tempered rancher at every turn.
Soon it becomes obvious to everyone around them that family animosity is not the only issue plaguing Sarah and Cord; their growing affections complicate matters and unknowingly create new enemies, who are more than willing to utilize the historic feud as a smoke screen. Torn between love and family loyalty, caught in the middle of trust and suspicion, wallowing in guilt and regrets, these two hearts are in an impossible situation unless they can find a find a way to unite the divide.
So, after successfully completing my first book by Kathleen Morgan, I can honestly say that it was a worthwhile journey. She's a good writer, and I was soon transported into the lives of the characters. Each of them had struggles, and I think they were portrayed in a very real, honest sort of way. Nobody was perfect, (although they came pretty close a couple times) and their love was beautiful and genuine. I'd recommend this to those historical fiction lovers who want to spend a quiet evening with a hot cup of... something :)
It's not a book that I would say, "Wow! I am definitely reading this over and over again!" I enjoyed my stay in the life of Cord and Sarah but whether I go back remains to be seen...
A Young woman was torn between the loyalty for her father and two brothers who lived a life of crime. She fell in love with the arch enemy. But there was one problem both sides refused to forgive and look at the past. When Cord's father dies by the hand of her Father's hand a ravine formed between the two lovers. She only had her faith to believe that God will turn the hearts of her love ones around.
I loved the plot and how the author brought the message of forgiveness in. Even when the odds was against her she still trust in the unwavering love of a Heavenly Father
