This book consisted of two very different parts. The first part about the heroine's escaping her sad former life and working her way through danger, tribulation, and poverty to make it to California in order to seek her missing father I really loved.

I have a theory about the story behind this story:

One day author Patricia Hagan started to write a western romance, chocked full of historical facts of what life was like in a wagon train.

At another time, Patricia piddled around with a gothic romance with the usual suspects: the ocean crashing against the rugg

It pretty good book!! A little slow in the end but it really didn't disappoint me. I could stop reading because all the disappearance of Jaime Chandler's father, romance between Jaime and Cord, and the other character that made this book so fun and intriguing to read it. It took me two days to finish it. I really recommend this book to anyone who likes romance novels!!
