I have liked this series so far, but haven't been wildly enthusiastic. This book started off introducing a brand new character, Emmie. Emmie is the sister of the bad guy from the first half of the series, and I like her.
Emmie has just lost her husband, after only a couple months of marriage. She's distraught, but things are about to get worse as she finds out that she wasn't really married. He already had a wife and child.
Emmie really has nowhere to turn, at least nowhere respectable. So she ends up heading out to Fort Laramie, to help Sarah Montgomery. A fresh start, somewhere new, where her non-marriage isn't known.
Only nothing can ever be that simple.
I really enjoyed this story, including the characters from the first three books. Now that everyone is happily married, they are far more likable!
Emmie just tugs at me. She has a no-good scoundrel of a brother, a bigamist for a husband, and now the system leaves her with few choices. No wonder she is bitter and untrusting when it comes to men.
For the first time in this series, I am eagerly looking forward to the next book, and I'm guessing it will be waiting for me when I get home.
Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier in Fort Laramie, Wyoming, but will her big secret drive them apart? Find out in book four, A Heart's Betrayal, of Colleen Coble's A Journey of the Heart series. Suddenly displaced, powerless, and ashamed, Emmie can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana. She makes a hopeful start for Fort Laramie to find her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s pregnant—and without a husband. The new start she’d hoped for slips from her fingers.
