This is a historical western and I really wanted to like this book, but the two main characters needed to grow the heck up. The constant bickering was horrible and I had to struggle just to finish this book.

The whole story line was awful for me. What mother abandons her 8 year old son and husband? They were both selfish, pigheaded and spoiled. She returns 12 years later for a divorce. BIG thumbs down from This Reader.

Slow moving. Not as good as Linda's later books.

Story about a woman who leaves her family because she doesn't feel loved and wanted. She thought the hero would come after her but 12 years go by. She goes back to home and wants a divorce. The story worked because the couple learned to communicate.

I can't remember who recommended this book to me. I found out there are several with this title. Obviously, this wasn't the right one. :-(
