I hated this book growing up (what do you mean, Shiloh likes someone else?!), but a reread as an adult made me appreciate it slightly more. I enjoyed how Shiloh elected to be on his own, forging his character without Cheney. While I didn't quite buy the romance between Maeva and Shiloh (they really didn't seem to have all that much interaction, at least shared with the reader), I liked that the authors attempted to have him form attachments separate from his character foil, Cheney--who I could h ...more

This is my least favorite of the books. I hardly ever re-read it. I don't like the story and I don't like how Cheney is portrayed here. Its probably just me, but I really dislike it and have from the first time I read it. Weird.
Probably my least favorite in the series but it's worth the read if you want to follow along :P
** This is just a QUICK REVIEW of my thoughts on the book **

Re-reading this series I find I don't like it as much as I used to. I’m not sure if I’m just too jaded now or if I was simply young enough then to love it without noticing the flaws….

Anyway, I didn’t really like this particular book in the series the first time I read it but I liked it even less this time! (view spoiler)

This book breaks my heart. And that's all I can say without spoilers...though I will say beware of page 196. It's got the saddest line--and to be honest though this adds a lot of depth to the characters and their friendship/relationship it is bittersweet. Well done by the authors, but heart wrenching and hard to swallow for the readers b
I was kind of disappointed with this was not near as good as the first. The story plot was okay but not quite as gripping as some. Also there was a romance going on between 2 people that literally just met and I HATE when that happens! It was still good and I enjoyed reading it but it's not a favorite.

The second book of this series didn't show up anywhere in my searches except in a collection format. I probably enjoyed this book so much because it took place in the Ozarks and I grew up in the foothills of those mountains. It was very much a historical viewpoint and a great story too boot!

This book in priticular, i didn't think it was that bad. The beginning of it i did not know what to think. I continued through it and it did get better. But i didn't love it soo much on the second book. I usaully try to finish books but the second one i didn't.
Cheney goes to a town made up of mountain people, to become their doctor. To also help a friend who is expecting a child. Though Cheny soon finds out the mountain people are very Leary of new comers. She has a long way to go to prove they can trust her.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book -- kind of a light read, but the characters are engaging. Perfect reading for vacation time, as I discovered reading this while on a bus with a tour group!
Thou I've read this series before, apparently I've missed a lot! Decided to get this book on audio and whoa what a story! Can't wait to dive back into this series!
I used to like this series a lot. It does have some funny moments/characters and interesting plot points, but it is also rather on the feminist and romantic side.
This is probably my least favorite Cheney Duvall book, but I have to admit that there are some very good new characters and Cheney and Shiloh really mature.
This one was ok. I liked the 1st book in the series better. There are several more books in the series - but not sure I'll ever get to them. We'll see.
I have reread this series countless times and I think I've only read this book once or twice. I didn't love what they did to Cheney/Shiloh.
neat story-similar to Christy sometimes-good setting-sequel?
About a blood fued and the people caught between them.
I liked this one much better than stars for a light.
read this again for the first time since college
Loved the Characters.
Totally awesome books!
