"It's not about the money." His voice was calm. He could have told her what day of the week it was with the same level of excitement.
"Then why? Why must you go back and try to get yourself killed? You have responsibilities here!"
Sam stopped brushing and seemed ready to turn and face her. He then thought better and did not. He returned to brushing the horse.
"Samuel, you turn around and face me! You tell me why I have to get ready to mourn a second man in my life. You tell me what I'm supposed to tell our children!"
His turn was powerful and deliberate; he faced her, "Our children, Laura? It wasn't that long ago you told me in no uncertain terms they were your children and I was a bad influence. You share them with me only when it suits you. They are our children if you think you can use them to your advantage."
"Is that why you're doing this? To punish me for what I said?"
"Laura, please. Do you really think that little of me? I gave the man my word. I promised him I would avenge him if this happened."
"You promised? You promised? You also promised my husband you would look after us. I know Wiggins was your friend, but he is cold and dead in the ground. There is nothing you can do that will change that."
Sam's brows furrowed, "And how is that different from William, your husband? Is he not also cold and dead in the ground?"
Laura stepped forward and took his free hand. She placed his hand on her chest, between her breasts, "Does this feel like it's cold and dead? Do you not feel the love that surges through my body with every beat of my heart? Tell me what I have to do to keep you here? What must I do to change your mind?"
Sam wondered, which was the higher calling; avenging a friend or being a father?

True to the Era
I don't want to give anything away in this one so my review is going to sound a bit ambiguous. I would recommend this book but also caution that if you are looking to a light and fluffy read this book is not for you. It is true to the time period were survival and life expediencies aren't what they are today. I did enjoy the book but found parts of it hard to get through emotionally. I had not read the first book but I the author did a good job recapping enough of the story that I wasn't lost. There is some light bedroom content but he does leave the majority of it "behind closed doors." It was a good book and I will be looking for the next in the series.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This guy can write a story . The characterization is his stories are precise , detailed and well thought out . You can see , hear , feel and touch the scenery ,the events , people and situations as they fly off the pages and into your life . Grab a pillow curl up on your couch and plan on staying for the long haul . Guarnetee you won’t want to be putting this trilogy down at any point along the way . Happy reading
