Life in the unsettled old west has it challenges, especially when the travelers are Amish.
Luke Carson, trail boss, has to concentrate on his job, others are counting on him to deliver the cattle to the awaiting train, diversions are not in the plan. Jesse Montgomery, long time friend to Luke sees the fun in situations even the ones he has no control over.Emma Switzer, father Jonas, sister Rebecca, and grandmother are on a pilgrimage to Troyer.When Luke meets the Switzers he realizes that their journeys lead them on different paths, their way of life very different from his own, but by supporting one another much can be accomplished.
I found this to be a very fresh and inspiring read. The characters seemed so real, genuine and familiar and I loved every minute spent getting to know them and reading about their story. I highly recommend this book to others! Amish fiction is not a genre I read alot of personally but gravitate more toward the western genre with cowboys and gunfights, but put the two together and you can expect a fun time reading with laugh aloud moments, times when you happily sigh and some parts that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Action, suspense, humor, old fashioned values and romance pepper this creative read. Dialogue, description and scenery all worked with no dull parts. Extremely well written, very hard to put down. I look forward to a sequel in this series! Thanks to Harvest House Publishers and Netgalley for the ARC for my review.
