When Crystal travels west to visit her aunt on her cattle ranch in beautiful Yampa Valley, she meets Luke, her aunt's rugged ranch foreman. Straight away, their different personalities and upbringings set them apart. Crystal is more accustomed to fine Southern society, but Luke and the locals know little about such things. It all gets even more interesting when the aunt dies. This book is full of great characters - we love to love the hero and his lady, and the 'baddies' are easy to dislike. it is more than romance. the characters grow in faith and maturity and change the way they think. All in all, a very enjoyable story.
An easy read, including conspiracy, romance and determination to succeed. All in all a good read.
It's a sweet cute story. It's not a faith builder. But it's still a nice romance that relaxes your mind without being boring or slow. I enjoyed it.
I am rather proud of my first ever ebook download. Heart of the West is a historical romance and I've really enjoyed reading Crystal Clark's journey of God's faithful provision. Crystal arrives at her Aunts ranch in Colorado after the death of her Father and is soon settled into a new way of life. Country verses City in the 1890's is well described. The support of community during hard times back then was very different to our modern world of 'supporting each other '. The harshness and beauty of nature when trying to make a living is still the same for those who are farmers today. How quickly nature can turn and bring devastation. Yet Gods provision is told beautifully in this story. The comfort of kindness and the eventual love and commitment of the two main characters is a wonderful story; although they are feisty towards each other at first, which is fun. Luke is a strong, faithful, God seeking character who faces his wrong choices and walks onto the path God has for his best life. I'm looking forward to the second book in the series and watching the lives of two new characters unfold. Gods plan for us is one of peace n provision, for our good. Sometimes we need to surrender 'us' to find it. I hope you'll enjoy this story like I have.
