About the Book
In 1837, Juniper Collins and her sisters are shocked by their father's final request in his will for a special set of beads to be returned to a Piegan Blackfoot woman he credits with saving his life during his travels west. Together, the sisters set out for the trapper rendezvous to find the woman, but their mission turns more daunting when they come upon the mass of men and lodges spread out in the Green River Valley.
Riley Turner came west to find peace and quiet and live off the land, but when four unprotected women arrive at the rendezvous, he feels compelled to help them and is more fascinated by Juniper than any other woman he's known.
As their search brings only empty leads and dead ends, the sisters must decide whether to return east or stay in the mountains to continue looking--and that's if the mystery woman is even still alive. Is the risk to honor their father's last request worth the danger they find at every turn?
Discover the majesty--and treachery--of the Rocky Mountains in this unique combination of exhilarating adventure, inspiring faith, and sweet romance from USA Today bestselling author Misty M. Beller.
As a fur trade reenactor who participates in modern day rendezvouses, I was really excited to read this book. It drew me in right away. The combination of the four sisters was really fun, and I loved Riley. He’s amazing. I had a little trouble understanding why any father of the time would ever send his daughters out west to try to find a woman he knew twenty years ago. Or why he would keep any information from them. It didn’t make any sense to me. And I don’t think even having Riley around would have kept the girls safe all that time, especially the times they would go off on their own. Not in a huge camp of drunken mountain men. It just doesn’t seem realistic.
But, beyond those quibbles and the book feeling a bit slow in the middle, I did enjoy the story, and I look forward to continuing with the series.
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
