Augustus knows that a wife and family can never be more than a dream for him. His former fiancée made that perfectly clear when she left him before he had even recovered from the surgery to amputate his leg.
Yet, 10 years later he agrees to marry Charlotte when she is left widowed and pregnant on the trail west.
Augustus is immediately taken by the beauty and charm of his new wife. He is even more enchanted by the idea of a child in his home. He assures himself that his missing leg won't matter in their marriage as long as he can keep her away from his heart. And his bed.
Augustus' plan seems to be working until Charlotte gives birth to a stillborn child. In her grief, she begs Augustus to give her the child her heart desires.
Can he let go of his past long enough to put a baby in the womb of the woman he is quickly coming to love?

a sweet insight into the old west
A sweet and unusual romance giving an insight into the rather bleak lives of unmarried women in the "old West".

I enjoyed this short (5 hrs and 46 mins ) tale and found it interesting.
pleasent narration by Felisha Caldeira

Some things in life never change !!
I do have a few friends who enjoy historical romance stories. It's a peek into the past to see how people lived in our past.
I enjoyed the part where Charlotte and Augustus finally became man and wife in the real sense. It always amazes me when I read how people years ago had the same emotions that we have today...It's just the way they word everything that is different. It's nice to have to hear a lot of obscene language.
Felisha's performance was really great !! She really drew me in to the character's personalities. I really didn't want the book to end.
I did not laugh or cry but I did feel empathy with the characters as they went through their hard times. I especially felt sad when Charlotte asked to hold her little baby that died before it was born.
I always get into the stories I read and I find myself thinking about the characters and wondering what happened in their lives. I love books because I feel like I gain new friends with each one.
