Will Sarah’s journey west lead her back into the arms of the one man she can trust?

When her father succumbs to a long illness, Sarah Montgomery is freed from duty to family. At last she can be with the love of her life, Rand Campbell, who has gone out west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Sarah and her younger brother Joel make the arduous journey filled with hope.

But at Fort Laramie, the reception Sarah meets isn’t what she had hoped for. Her friend Amelia is thrilled to have her, but Rand seems to be in the clutches of Jessica DuBois, the scheming daughter of the post commander.

Sarah resolves to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . especially when her ex-fiancé Ben Croftner arrives in Wyoming, obsessed with having her back in his arms.

The second installment in Colleen’s Journey of the Heart series had my emotions soaring once again. She is really good at drawing me in and making me “feel” all kinds of things for her characters.
I was a little irritated with Rand in this one. Though I can see his side of things, I’m a romantic at heart and it just frustrated me to see him turn so quickly.
I really felt sad for Sarah. After all she had been through…now this!
Ugh, don’t even get me started on Jessica (insert booing here).
As I said, these characters are real to me. I feel what they feel. I care about what happens to them.
This was a quick, but unforgettable read and I cannot wait for the third installment!!!
If you are a fan of Janette Oke, Catherine Marshall and the like…definitely pick up this series- you will not be disappointed! (Posted on 4/30/2015)

Lieutenant Rand Campbell recently returned home to Wabash, Indiana after being held a prisoner at Andersonville Prison, only to find that Sarah, the girl he had planned to marry was engaged to Ben Croftner. Rand exposed Ben for the liar he was, but he still didn’t win Sarah’s heart. Rand boarded the train for Ft. Laramie to protect the area from the Sioux Indian unrest. After Sarah’s father died her brother insisted she would marry Ben, so she packed her bags and her little brother and boarded the train for Ft. Laramie to follow Rand, only to find he was engaged to the Major’s daughter, Jessica DuBois. To make matters worse Ben also comes to Ft. Laramie as the new Indian trader, but also intends to make Sarah his wife.

This short story is a very quick read. From the first page I loved Sarah’s character, but was sad when it didn’t seem to develop into a deeper storyline. Just about the time the novella really became interesting, it just ended, leaving you with a lot of unanswered questions. Maybe this was the author’s intention…to leave you wanting more so you will read the next in the series. For the most part it was an enjoyable book and I will look forward to the next one.

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, Thomas Nelson, through Net Galley blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
