A story that takes you back into time and places you in 1869 with great detailed writing, you can picture yourself being in that era. This is the first book I have read by Tamera Alexander and it won't be my last.
The story is about Maggie a young women that wants to have her horse win the next Payton Stakes, which will save her father's farm from the tax collectors. Maggie's dad (Linden) unexpectedly meets Cullen one day and makes a deal that he can buy the farm from him if he marries his daughter Maggie. Cullen is Irish and has come from England to start a new life all over. After trying to purchase a horse and the local's do not accept him, because buying a horse means staying in town, he agrees to Linden's deal and stays in town. The adventure continues with Maggie and Cullen getting to know and accept each other as a couple. This story is written so well it tugs at your heart and you can't stop reading, it is a page turner.
I would recommend this book to all those that enjoy a good page turner, romance/drama/heartfelt all in one book. I loved it and couldn't stop reading, each chapter left you to read more because you wanted to know what was happening. It is fast paced and moves very smoothly to keep you interested.
