Shad Petty is a cowhand, plain and simple, whose days are filled with riding for the McCutcheon brand. There's no room in his life for a woman, let alone a female with obvious means who is completely out of his reach. Unfortunately, the candid Miss Ford captures his heart and his simple life is turned topsy-turvy from that point on.
Pampered socialite Poppy Ford rarely listens to direction. Her father has indulged her every whim and she's been a dutiful daughter until now...when she decides to visit her sister in Y Knot without his permission. All too soon, Poppy learns the Montana wilderness is not Boston. She's thrust into danger of her own making and the results are a matter of life or death. When the roughhewn cowboy named Shad offers his help, she begins to see him in a different light. Can two such completely different people find love? Or will circumstances keep them apart?
Montana Courage, Book Nine of the award-winning, western historical McCutcheon Family series, continues the lives of the McCutcheons as well as the homespun townsfolk of Y Knot, Montana.

Lots of new from YKnot
Another great story by this author!
The story is a great one no matter which way you enjoy it. The audio version makes everything come alive so much more than if I read it myself. I tend to read fast so listening to someone else read it to me, I don't miss details; its almost like watching a movie in my head while listening to the audio version of the story.
Debra Holland has books which are similar in character as this one. Her stories on love, life, hardships and hope in this time period are similar. I enjoy these as well.
The scene where Poppy admitted to Chad how badly she had treated her sister all these years and how badly she felt about that. She explained how coming to YKnot had changed her for the better. The conversation was really sweet. I also loved the ending where Poppy was furious with Chad for ignoring her for four months.
There were many times I laughed out loud but the scene where the tears flowed was when Chance and Evelyn's baby was born. It was so nail biting because you didn't know if he was going to make it home for the birth of their baby.
The other scene was where Poppy and Oliver were trapped in the snow with wolves trying to get to them. I felt as if I could feel their cold and fear at being in that situation.
Caroline Fyffe definitely has captured the mood of the times and is such a great storyteller. I felt she definitely had done research on life in the 1800's. I could almost feel the cold, hunger and fear in some of the situations the characters faced as I was hearing the story. She has done such a great job in creating this entire series.
