I have to admit that I chose this book because Jane Oppenheimer was narrating. Ive enjoyed her narration in the past and this book is no exception. Since I've never read anything by this author, I was very pleased that this book exceeded my expectations.
The romance of Leila and Rork is a long journey of patience, trust and strength. They are both decent and honorable people who find themselves "between a rock and a hard place". Their love leads them on a course of danger, friendships, captivity and murder..
This book is a treat for those who love 19th century American history. The backdrop of this story spans from the civilized city of New York to the untamed west. I applaud the author for not shying away from including social issues such as substance abuse, domestic abuse, slavery and interracial marriage in this book. Including these issues made the story feel more authentic and the characters more real.
Note: This book does include sexual situations but no explicit sex. There is also some swearing.
I recommend this book if you enjoy romances that have a well developed story and great narration.

This was ten+ hours of twists and turns as Rourke and Lara found their way to each other. Infidelity, murder, attempted rape, slavery, freedom fighting, love lost and then found again; interracial marriages and Indians. The only part I did not like was when they made the dog soldier Indians seem as if they were the ones who broke the peace treaty when actuality it was the white men lusting after gold who defiled the Indians land. The narrator was good but on several occasions, Lara's name was pronounced one way and then another. She was an indecisive person. She was true to a husband who blatantly flaunted his mistress in front of her yet would give Rourke a hard time for loving her. Then get mad because he left. She did come to her senses finally. I loved all of the misadventures where they were so close to each other and did not know it. This book was given in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom.
