Jared rescues and protects Cassidy - he's a wonderful hero! He loves her and is wise in his love.
Writing in a flowing, descriptive style, Wendi Christner perfectly captures the country and the people of rural north Florida. She shows the country life in all its dusty glory. I could smell the cows and horses and men. I was fascinated by the Native medicine and spirit beliefs, by the country customs and by the kinship with animals, especially horses.
Wendi also beautifully evokes the power of first love - its gradual awakening and awareness, its heat and passion and sweetness.
There's tension throughout the story - will Cassidy leave or stay? Will she come to terms with the past? Will she and Jared find the love and courage to win through together? Read it and find out!
This is a marvellous, heartfelt novel that I really loved. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending to everyone who enjoys compelling, realistic, glorious love stories.
