This story reminds me a lot of the old westerns I used to read when I was much younger. It has a quaint air to it with a nice story line. I was quickly drawn into the lives of the main characters and cheered at their successes.
Character development is of a style that I very much enjoy. There isn’t a lot of tell and it is very much a show meaning the characters are allowed to develop through their actions and their impressions on other characters and not a lot of narrative by the author telling us what we should think of the characters. It makes for a very nice read.
There were a few plot twists in this book but nothing that didn’t get resolved. Overall I think this was a great western with romance and intrigue. I would recommend it without hesitation.
