The delicate beauty is finally summoned by Geoffrey to the Kansas prairie. By this time, the fires of love are ashes. When she arrives, the strange landscape and the older, more mature Geoffrey send Emmaline into a panic. They agree she'll stay until the spring. If she still wants to go home, he'll pay her passage.
The author creates a realistic picture of prairie life. I could feel the scorching sun on my neck, as well as see fields of wildflowers.
Characters are an essential element to a great story. I couldn't help but laugh at the misunderstandings between a man and woman. They were so typical of real life situations. The supporting cast provided humor, pathos, and wise advice to the heroine and hero.
For a genre I'd never read prior to blogging, I've become quite a fan of historical fiction. When I see Kim Vogel Sawyer's name on a book cover, I'll know there's a lot of hours of reading pleasure ahead of me.
