Let's be honest... This novel is not Lonesome Dove. But that novel was the last one before this to bring a tear to my eye. And this one also brought a tent to my pants too! It's a page turner, and read as chapters has plenty of cliff hangersa, plus some amusing even chuckle-inducing moments. I admit I 1st read it in another format on another website, and of all the stories ever published there, it's the 1st worthy of publishing as a stand alone novel. Just finished rereading it on here.
Keep going after the 1st couple of chapters. You'll be rewarded. Grace is truly Amazing.
