What a touching heartbreaking story of one man who did an act of kindness only to lead to guilt and a proposal he really didn’t want to do. This is a clean read about love, honor and putting others before yourself that leads to heartbreak, loneliness and love only to have to walk away from it. The ending is a HEA but as the story builds you have to wonder if it will end with everyone getting what they want. It is anyone’s guess how many will end up with a broken heart. Sometimes what we think we want we find we really do not. Will these people come to understand their true feelings before they wreck so many lives?
Ms. Woodworth’s really brought this story to live for me as she pulled me in using emotion filled with sorrow, anger, hurt and pain along with excitement, danger and thrills. I had no trouble picturing the events as they unfold. Her character voices are wonderful as she held me spellbound from Travis and his guilt to his friend and his broken heart along with Evaline and how it all comes together. There are no volume changes, no background noise or any repeating of words. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. Her male voices were just as good as her female voices, you have no trouble knowing who is talking and just what they are feeling. Her character voices are just great as well as her normal voice is very pleasant and easy to listen to. The narrator really pulls you into the story giving you emotions that really reach your heart. You can feel the uneasiness of the characters as they work through the emotions of guilty, lose, and hope, facing the outcome and the heart break of what needs to be done. Ms. Woodworth’s has no trouble pulling off this very emotional listen that captivates you and holds your attention.
I really liked the characters, the story, the twists and the outcome. Each has their own dreams, hopes and fears. The plot has a nice buildup from the friendship to what is expected as well as the love of so many. One man torn from doing the right thing and doing what he wants. One women who thinks she wants something but as time goes by she isn’t sure and another women willing to step back and let her heart break to give the other what she thinks is right. It truly is a shame that in today’s world we do not live by the same practices of honor and doing the right thing. We spend too much time thinking about what we want and less about the other person. We could all learn a wonderful lesson from the words in this story. I liked how Travis’s best friend laid down the law but when it came down to it he went that extra mile to help out. I can’t wait to listen to his story, I really hope he finds his true love. The supporting characters add so much to the story line. I enjoyed the humor and at times laughed or times I really felt the pain or sorrow. From the author to the narrator this was a win, win listen for me.

As I think back to listening to this book, my thoughts are mixed.
The story opened and I formed an opinion of how the plot would go, except it didn't go that way...at all. The conclusion of the book made sense to the story and wrapped everything up nicely, but I still have a lingering question wondering what would have happened if the plot had twisted in a few of the ways that my mind thought it would.
Travis drove Libby home one evening and an unfortunate accident on the ride home caused Libby injury to her legs, making the doctor wonder if she would walk again. Travis feels guilty and does everything he can to help Libby, including selling cattle to pay for a doctor and even offering to marry her. Then Travis meet a woman in town that he is attracted to and the plot thickens.
One thing I do like about books by Barbara Goss is the characters. They have character and integrity without being boring, uptight or stuffy.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
