Synopsis from Goodreads:
Kate Kinsella pursues Charley Barstow when he skips out of town without a second thought. Not only has he left Agnes McPherson alone and pregnant, but everyone still believes that he and Kate are engaged, a sham from the beginning. An ill-timed encounter with a group of ruffians has her suddenly in the company of Ethan Barstow, Charley’s brother and a man of questionable repute. As they move deeper into the shadows of the Arizona desert, family tensions and past tragedies threaten to destroy a relationship neither of them expects.
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
McCaffrey’s characters are brilliant as well. Not only are the main characters compelling individuals that you want to see succeed; they are individuals with heavy pasts that they must learn to deal with. Getting to know them was very emotionally rewarding. The supporting cast was also quite varied, well developed and suited the story perfectly. I loved how they interacted with each other and how they always stayed true to form.
McCaffrey makes history your present while reading her work. This was a brilliant read that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone.
