Once I began reading this story, I could hardly set it down. A Sweetwater River Romance is book three in the Wyoming Mountain Tales, but can stand alone if you have not read books one and two. I, however, have read the first two books and it was such a joy to get to read Ezra’s story. And what a story it was!
Ezra was a great hero. He was honorable, brave, compassionate, and true. He was willing to do whatever it took to keep Tori and her cousin, Opal, safe. And he had such a great heart. He struggled with doubts sometimes, yet had a strong faith that he lived out.
Tori had a painful backstory. This novel follows her road to true freedom, from a victim who felt helpless, with no understanding of God, to a woman able to put her past behind her and trust in a God who wants to save her. Tori was a complicated mix of fear and bravery. I loved reading about her journey.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Taking flight from their quiet Pennsylvania town seems like the only way for Tori Boyd to protect her dearest cousin’s virtue. And the success of their escape may now depend on the man she’s been writing letters to for over a year now in the vast wilds of the Wyoming Territory.
Ezra Reid has finally stepped out from under the shadow of his older brother and sister, now having full responsibility to man the Rocky Ridge Stage Stop through the winter. The success or failure of the stage and telegraph contracts falls squarely on his shoulders, and he’s entirely focused on the work – at least until his mysterious correspondence partner shows up on his doorstep.
As Ezra takes on the search for a proper situation for Tori and her cousin, there seem to be no good options for the ladies. Especially since Tori won’t even discuss the one option that might succeed – marriage. When the danger chasing the women takes on a form none of them anticipated, how far will Ezra have to go to keep the Tori and her cousin safe? It’ll take a lot more than luck to ensure his heart is the sole casualty.
