Publisher's Summary

Samuel Moses Cardiff had a plan. He would graduate from the Teachers College in Albany, secure himself a position as a school master and ask his long-time girlfriend to marry him. He had a plan and just one thing stood in his way, the Civil War.
Samuel graduated college the summer Fort Sumter was fired upon and he returned home in time to be enlisted into the 42nd New York Infantry Regiment. His life was put on hold.
Like many of the young men, like Samuel thought the war would be a grand adventure. For him, it turned into a nightmare.

Well-written, Well-read, Wonderful!

History? Wild West? Strong, flawed, well-drawn characters? Romance? Great plot? Check, check, check, check and check. Yup! Terrific book, well worth reading, with an interesting slant on PTSD (NOT so identified as that would be terrifically anachronistic, but I would speculate the horrors of combat and killing may have affected men going back to the caveman) which provides valuable insights.

But wait! There's more! I had the joy of listening to the audible version (standard disclaimer: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.) which is superbly narrated by Joseph Durika, who richly brought the characters to life.

I Loved it

I got this book via audiobook boom and this is my review. This is a beautiful western romance. It is a full story but left me wanting to get the next in the series. Sam and Laura's story. The story went from past to present and all in between but was easy to follow. I could feel all of the emotions that Sam was feeling and the narrator was just perfect for the book. I especially liked the scene between Sam and his mother. then the letter he wrote to apologize for his behavior. the ending was very well done. although the story did not fully end it was complete. Not a strong cliffhanger but one anyway.
