This was my first delve into Joan Johnston, and I absolutely loved it and look forward to reading her back list as well as future titles.

I normally stick to the regency books, but I had wanted to read a historical western romance for a while, and the mail-order bride fit well with the story. I was absolutely in love with the heroine by page 22. Her fierce love for her siblings and incredible desire to do anything to protect them from harm brought tears to my eyes.

Wonderful read.

EDIT 07/14/2013

Just finished reading this for the second time, and I loved it almost as much as the first. This time around I did notice a few things that felt like inconsistencies, but I cried just as much as the first time. I just adore Miranda (the main female) and how devoted she is to her siblings. I also enjoyed that there are a few chapters from the point of view of secondary characters. You don't often see that in a romance novel.
