Read in July, 2011

Set in 1935 New Mexico, Counting the Cost provides a wonderful window on a long ago era. Vividly written, beauty, joy, and tragedy alike are described in rich detail. If you love historical fiction, especially set in the American West, you will enjoy Counting the Cost.

NOTE: Counting the Cost won the 2009 Whitney award in Romance, but this is by no means a romance book. I would classify it as a historical novel, but I've heard some call it a "love story".
