Against a sweeping panorama of England and the Continent—and the muted thunder of far-off war—Thomas B. Costain has etched in the glass of history a moving tale of adventure and enduring love.

Francis Ellery is a young, courageous newspaper editor who publishes scathing broadsides against the rampaging Napoleon. One foggy London night he loses his heart to the beautiful Gabrielle de Salle, one of a group of exiled French aristocrats. But as the Continent becomes engulfed in the Napoleonic wars, Francis must part from her. He serves on the battlefronts of Spain and Russia as a war correspondent, surviving many colorful and bloody conflicts. And as romance and intrigue swirl around Francis and Gabrielle, their destinies are swept into a vortex of crises and betrayal, spurred on by a hero’s rousing cry.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 2/20/2014

    " Last in the English Creek trilogy. Interesting twist set during the Montana centenial in 1989. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 2/8/2014

    " The last book in the trilogy beginning with Dancing at the Rascal Fair. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/30/2014

    " The third of the trilogy by Doig. This one much more contemporary. Again, I feel like I am in Montana, riding around the state with Mariah. What a writer. What a great yarn. If he isn't, he should be required reading in all Montana high schools. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 1/20/2014

    " I didn't like this book (third in the triology) as much as the first two. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emily | 1/18/2014

    " Worst language ever, couldn't even get past the first few chapters. I wanted to smack Doig for ruining what could have a been a wonderful story, he let me down on this one...but I've forgiven him, most of his other books redeemed him for me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorothy | 1/17/2014

    " Interesting story - liked the pace and descriptions of the countryside. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Petersen | 1/16/2014

    " The final book of the Montana trilogy. I was so sad when I was done reading this book, because I wanted the story of this family to continue on and on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Websterdavid3 | 1/15/2014

    " Good book, as always, by Doig. Schmaltz alert as protaganist gets older "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat De | 12/29/2013

    " The completion of the trilogy was just as good as the other two. I love this author(storyteller). I want to see all of Montana after reading this series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harriet Wrye | 12/13/2013

    " This, the third in the trilogy, was the weakest--But it doesn't dampen my enthusiasm for reading Ivan Doig "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 11/16/2013

    " Ivan Doig is a great author. This story read like a travelog. I enjoyed hearing about the topography and the character of various Montanan cities. Doig's humor is delightful. I found myself sharing some humerous tidbits, and always got a laugh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Babcock | 11/9/2013

    " One of my favorite authors named his daugher the same as my daughter is named, Karma? No - we just both love the winds of Montana. My daughter calls the wind her sister. She loves the wildness of the Mariahs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Dalley | 11/3/2013

    " This was okay, but definitely my least favorite of the trilogy. I felt it meandered for the first 3/4 of the book. I did like the twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 9/18/2013

    " The third of three sticks with the same character as the second, but fast forward 50? years and he is in a motorhome with his grown up daughter and her ex husband. It is fun to read about all the same characters and their descendants from the first two books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 11/2/2012

    " The beginning and the end of Ride With Me Mariah Montana were page turners. However, the middle third sagged and drug on and on. Of the several Doig books I have read, nothing matches his Dancing at the Rascal Fair. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pureschmaltz | 9/3/2012

    " Just as well written as the first two in the trilogy. Heart felt. Beautiful "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 7/31/2012

    " The final installment of Doig's Montana trilogy, Ride with Me is a pale shadow of the previous two books. Stick with English Creek. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 11/25/2011

    " Four stars for the book and five stars for the trilogy. A fantastic glimpse into a small part of Montana history through the fictional story of one family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morris | 10/17/2011

    " This is the last of the trilogy by Ivan Doig, starting with Dancing at the Rascal Fair then English Creek. All of them are excellent and follows the lives of several families through the years in rural Montana. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lghamilton | 9/22/2011

    " Did not like the father, did not like the daughter. Enough already about her hair! I feel I SHOULD like Doig, since he writes about my heritage (Montana, sheep ranchers), but nothing compares to THis House of Sky and the first of the trilogy books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rinda | 7/22/2011

    " Three years later I still see the images reading this book burned into my mind. Great writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 6/25/2011

    " A vivid word-tour of Montana during its centennial (1989) with a love story winding through the tale. Third in the McCaskill family trilogy. (Also enjoyed English Creek and Dancing at the Rascal Fair a decade or so ago.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 5/31/2011

    " If this was the first book I read by Ivan Doig, it was also be my last. I found his dialog to be juvenile and his character development to be stilted. I felt I had the writer I admire with me only on the last 15 pages. A big disappointment! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 5/15/2011

    " I read this montana trilogy, loved the first one English Creek, really liked Dancing at the Rascal Fair and I only liked this one. The stroy was very interesting, exploring families ang family complications... but the language was not good. I liked the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 2/27/2011

    " THird book in Doig's trilogy. I loved this! I read this one first, even though it was the final "chapter" in the story of this family. Excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan Klein | 8/4/2010

    " I have read other books by Doig and really enjoyed them. This seemed to be a much slower paced story both for the reader and the author as though he was recalling bits and pieces from his memory and jotting them down. Still a good story though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elissa | 4/14/2010

    " Good reading and decent action/adventure during the Napoleonic era but romance was frustrating and very worldly. "
