After the death of her husband, Kathy Conley moves into the old ranch house that she has inherited from her husband. But for 125 years the house has been haunted by the ghost of Dalton Crowkiller. Hung though innocent of the crime of rape, he curses the man who lead the lynching and whose wife falsely accused him.

Now after all these years between life and death, Dalton finally is able to be seen, heard and touched by Kathy. And maybe he now has the chance to right the wrongs of the past and perhaps even hope for a future.

After having this book in my possession for years I finally got around to reading it, excited by the many 5-star reviews and by my love of Native American heroes and historical westerns. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it all that much. It had a dated feel to it, the dialogue unrealistic and the time-travel aspect unconvincing. Although the hero and heroine were likable with a sweet but predictable happily-ever-after.

I think it's worth reading since it's so popular.

MelissaB I have also had it for years.
