Janet Dailey is an excellent writter. She adds depth to the characters and build complex stories that actually hold a persons interest. This isn't your easy boy meets girl romance. She's married and not about to cheat. The emotions just simmer for a very long time. You feel for the characters. You want them to have a happy ending, but know it's going to be Hell to get them there. Kept me interested and turning pages. I always enjoy Daileys books..and would recommend them to anyone who doesn't wa ...more

Webb Calder is Benteen Calder's son, the owner of Triple C Ranch in Montana. Webb wants just to be one of the cowboys but his father wants him to step up and take on some responsibility. When will he ever grow up?

The ranch has been in operation for awhile and the railways want to generate more business. The Homesteaders Act is pushed though and now drylanders are flocking to Montana to try their luck. They must cope with drought, cold and very inhospitable conditions to grow a little wheat. Amon
I read the first in this series a while ago, but seeing all the cattle ranches on our summer vacation inspired me to read this second book in the series. It was a good romance. I like the Calder series because it follows the generations and the stories seem more realistic than a lot of romance books that are just too perfect.
Started reading this series in the 80's. I think the last one was published just a couple of years ago. I've enjoyed them all, especially the early ones set in the old west. The newer one's are contemporary. It follows a large ranch owning family through the generations.

Another great book in the Calder series
This book is part of a series, The author took for granted that the reader had read the previous books, and I hadn't. The result was that I had some trouble following. It was, however, a good book.
This book is about honor,and pride. I loved the book,and the characters. The story was very good,and the setting beautiful. If you have not started this series..try it..but begin with book 1.....

A good reread. I love the Calder men and women. I find them great rereads when I'm looking for a book on a lazy afternoon.
I loved all the Calder books by Janet Dailey. Good stories about ranch life!
Webb takes over the homestead & has a son, Chase. Lorna & Benteen die
