    " I liked this story. It was interesting to see the ways the main characters' lives were intertwined. I would read another one in this series. "

    " This was an absolute fabulous read, free flowing story, wonderful characters and well developed background for each. Will definitely read the next one in the series. "

    " I liked this book quite a bit. I finished it in three days I think (thanks to toddlers who occasionally keep me up most of the night!). I will definitely be reading book #2 in this series. Not sure I have what it takes to read #3. I particularly enjoyed reading about photography way back then, and also the culture of the times. It just amazes me how differently different people were treated. "

    " This was a fast read. I just flew threw it. hard to put down. a great Historical Romance. "

    " I actually started this book last year, and something about it just didn't sustain my interest very much. Well written, good story, just not super engaging to me at first. So, it's been sitting on my nightstand for months and months, and I finally decided to finish it. After I was closer to over halfway through, the story grabbed me. It was well written, and it is a good story. I didn't really consider it a 'Christian' novel at first, because when the characters spoke of their realationship with 'God', it seemed normal for their characters, and not overwhelming - not like the author was trying to preach it. It blended really well with the storyline, and you do really like the characters. It seemed also to be really well researched, which is important to me in historical fiction books. From what the West was like post Civil War (and about the war itself), to the technicalities and difficulties of photography in that age. The only thing that I ended up disliking in this book, really, was the last few chapters. It was exciting, kept things moving, and all had happy endings, BUT - it was then that the author stepped over the line and became preachy more than what had seemed normal character inner dialogue throughout the rest of the book. If I had gone into the book expecting it, or it had kept the same level throughout the book, then that would be one thing. But it seemed kind of forced at the end, like she had to squeeze "the lessons" in at the end. If you are a fan of good historical fiction, and you like interesting characters, and go into it knowing that it's going to be a little more religion in it, and you like that, then you will probably really like this book. "

    " I enjoyed this book overall. I thought it ended kind of abruptly. Interesting, though, and clean. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashlee | 1/12/2014

    " Hehe, I love it already! These two are so perfect! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esther | 1/12/2014

    " Bit slow in the beginning, but got better as the book went on. I enjoyed the easy read.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexia | 1/5/2014

    " I almost gave this 5 but wasn't really into the camera/photography aspect of the book. I wasn't crazy about the main girl character either. She was so pushy and deceitful. However, I thought it was really good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/26/2013

    " I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction - it took me about 50% of this book to really get into, but I did enjoy it even though it moved a little slow for me at the beginning. "

    " This was from the series "Timber Ridge Reflections" - #1. I really enjoyed this book - and this author. I will read other books of hers. I laughed, cried, and got a little scared in this read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suz | 6/30/2013

    " I love stories about our rugged past and the heroic measures it took often just to live. This was a good novel, very expressive in details as if you could stand and view the majestic mountain country right there. Perfect love story, danger and adventure! Enjoy! "

    " Fun Amazon Kindle freebie about a woman reporter-photographer in the undeveloped wilds of Colorado in the Post-civil War era. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 4/24/2011

    " The beginning was decent, but it got more interesting and the characters more dimensional and likable after about 150 pages or so. Overall, good book, but I liked some of the authors other works better than this. "

    " This was a good book to listen to. Elizabeth travels to the Colorado territory to photograph nature for a Washington DC or NY city newspaper. It was a good story, filled with adventure and some mystery and a happy ending. "
