Berry Warfield along with her creep of a father and Rachel, (who is pregnant and supposed to be her young stepmother but the father never married her) head from Ohio to Missouri for a land claim.
Berry is a beauty but has a short fuse and is at times TSTL. My favorite character in this story is Fain who is best friends with the H, Simon. Fain falls in love with Rachel and he is just so sweet.
There is tons of action and suspense in this story and its a real page turner. There is also some goo

Great frontier story with characters rugged enough to meet the challenges of every day life. Berry Warfield is a spitfire that attracts all the trappers and river men that come near her. She is a match for them all and soon sends the men packing or shoots them. Simon, a trader/farmer, that is slightly interested in Berry isn't sure he wants to have anything to do with her temperamental disposition. Plenty of action, suspense, danger and adventure in this story to go along with the romance.

I just found when I started reading this one that I had to force myself to really get into the story...I like books that consume my every waking thoughts even when I have to actually live beyond the pages....I'm saving this one for a winter read when I can curl up and savor this wonderful writers' style...
