A Heart's Obsession
Can a woman held captive by her family make it back to the one man she knows she can trust?
When Sarah Montgomery's father succumbs to his long illness, Sarah is faced with a life-altering choice: submit to her brother's will and marry the deceptive Ben Croftner . . . or escape through the dangerous American West to reclaim the heart of her beloved Rand Campbell at Fort Laramie, Wyoming.
From captivity in her family's home, Sarah makes her decision-and begins the perilous journey to Wyoming by train.
But even in the company of Rand's brother, Sarah does not receive the reception she had hoped for. The necessity of a military wife has preempted her, and Rand is already engaged to Jessica DuBois, the seductive daughter of the post commander.
With her heart broken and her life in ruins, Sarah has no choice but to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . the obsessive Ben Croftner has just shown up in Wyoming.
My thoughts: Sarah and Rand have a hard time getting things right. After Rand comes home from the Civil War to find his sweetheart engaged to another man, he takes off to Fort Laramie. When Sarah's father passes away, she feels like she can finally follow Rand, only to find that he has found love elsewhere. But, she can still help others on the frontier. When her former fiance and enemy, Ben, shows up, she must make some choices to help protect those she loves.
This is a complicated story! I'm curious to see how it unfolds, since it has some interesting twists and turns. I also find the historical side of the story interesting! The only thing I am not sold on is some of the characters and the way they seem to move on so quickly.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
