About the book: ~ Beyond shattered dreams lies a realm of possibilities ~
Illinois prairie ~1855
Unsettled by the news that her estranged cousin and uncle are returning home after a year away, Charlotte Stanton goes to ready their cabin and finds a handsome stranger has taken up residence. Convinced he’s a squatter, she throws him off the property before learning his full identity. Little does she know, their paths were destined to cross again.
Quiet and ruggedly handsome, Chad Avery’s uncanny ability to see through Charlotte’s feisty exterior and expose her inner weaknesses both infuriates and intrigues her. When a tragic accident incites her family to move east, Charlotte stays behind in hopes of becoming better acquainted with the elusive cattleman. Yet Chad’s unwillingness to divulge his hidden past, along with his vow not to love again, threatens to keep them apart forever.

My thoughts: This book is fantastic! Cynthia Roemer has written yet another wonderful story of life on the prairie with realistic characters and descriptions that made me feel as if I were there. This is a definite must-read.
Charlotte and Chad are two characters you can’t help but like. Charlotte is feisty and independent while Chad is more reserved. The two balance each other perfectly. They are complex and genuine, and I soon forgot they were fictional.
The author’s writing style is wonderful. Her word choices and descriptions make it easy to picture the scenes while reading. Her writing is comparable to Janette Oke and I have thought this since reading her first book. I think it even more so now. She creates stories that you just feel good reading.
Fans of stories about life on the prairie are sure to love this book. While it is the second of the series it can be read as a standalone. I do recommend reading the first book to get a complete understanding of what’s going on in this book. Also, the first book is just as wonderful as this one and you don’t want to miss out on reading it. Cynthia Roemer is on my must-read author list and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and was not required to write a review. All opinions are mine.
