After reading the first book of the series I wasn't sure how the second was going to work it's way into the lives of the Cole family. But it flowed right in as if another day had started in the ever twisting and surprising events in the lives of this young frontier couple. JW Holden's knowledge of the frontier at that particular time in history, the landscape, tools, how the homes and barns were built and their mode's of transportation according to the need is fascinating.
Weaving it all in to a great story. Hardships, battles, his one true love. This book as the first has it all. And now number three One person found this helpful. Great Read! I was very pleased with this book as well as the first book in this series I have all three and the books are very exciting, to say the least Holden is a great author!!
Book Two opens on warfare with the British. George Washington is trying to get into financial shape to fight, but until then, he set up some Rangers to help out the farm and ranchers to defend themselves. This story is about families, Indians, as well as British soldiers. I learned some things I didn't know. The reader becomes more invested as previous characters are further developed and actual historical figures are introduced to the story, adding depth and intrigue. The plot thickens as individuals are called upon to count the personal cost of freedom, a theme that becomes more relevant every day.
The occasional lessons in survival and natural medicine add even more interest and value to the adventure. An educational and entertaining read; I impatiently await the next installment and highly recommend this series. I just completed this book and I found the book to be very well-written. It contained some action scenes that I was able to follow and descriptions I could visualize.
Quite often, writers include too much unnecessary verbiage, which this book does not. You get to know the characters and may get attached; my favorite is Mica for his kindness and wealth of healing knowledge, and Rebeccah for her womanly strength and support of her husband, Jed, who has two battles burning in his heart. Now I need to go back and read the first book in this series, and I eagerly anticipate the next. Go to Amazon. Feedback If you need help or have a question for Customer Service, contact us.
