On his way home from a cattle drive Jesse Mason finds an infant and a woman, who has been shot. What are they doing out in the middle of the Kansas plains, miles from any town, and who wants them dead?
- This short story had all the qualities of a full novel. I don’t usually like short stories, but this one made me rethink myself. I got caught up in Jesse and Ginny’s story that was full of emotion, sadness, surprises and second chances with a growing romance. Jesse’s and Ginny’s characters were well defined and you could see the strong love and heart these two had for life, baby Sarah, and each other. I didn’t need to see what they looked like on the outside because what was on their inside came through loud an clear. I am looking forward to reading the next book (short story), Jesse’s Nightmare!
- This is a quick read romantic book. I shed a few tears and was entertained by the book. A book that has a strong and gentle cowboy along with a maiden in trouble is always a winner.
- Very good story, I think everyone will like it. I liked the sensitivity and emotions portrayed. The ending is just perfect. It ties up all the loose ends in the story. I remember reading this book a long time ago. It still was worth a second read.
Her expression was guarded as he approached. “Who are you?” she asked.
“Jesse Mason. I found you a few days back, about a mile from here.”
The girl scanned the room, as if looking for something. “Can…can I please talk to your wife?”
Jesse stiffened. “I don’t have a wife.”
She took another step back. “But…but the baby, and someone changed my clothes.”
