When I read this, I did not know it was the third in a series. I don't feel that it made much of a difference though. I thought the book had very good potential, but too many bad things kept happening to the hero and heroine. It gets to a point where you want to scream, "enough already!" It was pretty good-I rate it at 3 1/2 stars.

Deep as the Rivers

I've just finished this last book and I feel it is the best one in the trilogy. It grabbed my attention from the first chapter & I never wanted to put it down. I didn't think the author could create any other characters as interesting and "connected" as Samuel & Olivia, but she tied all the families together and you instantly knew how the connections came about. I heartily recommend this Santa Fe Trilogy and will find myself reading them again.

A good read but long. Everything that could possibly happen to these two lovers, does, including a natural disaster.

aka Alexa Hunt.

Working my way through college provided great life experiences for a novelist. One problem. I didn’t know I was destined to write books. Instead, I floundered around during and after receiving my B.A. and M.A. in history from the University of Missouri. None of my wide variety of jobs satisfied me: cashier for a loan company, public welfare caseworker, assistant circulation manager
