Heading west to seek her fortune, Boston-bred Annika Storm is abducted off a train by Buck Scott, a rugged frontiersman who mistakes Annika for the mail-order bride he has been expecting. Book available.
Annika thought she knew a lot about life - Boston life that is -- but soon found to her dismay, when she was given a mistaken identity and kidnapped by Buck Scott, that she had a lot more to learn.
She started out in fear of this hulking blonde giant and ended up passionately in love with him. To this day, I find that so many of the younger generation could not survive if put into a similar situation.
Annika preferred her meat from a butcher rather than on the foot. I had to chuckle at her reaction to skinning a rabbit. It brought back memories.
She did show the inner strength of her mother in making the best of a situation and finally coming to grips with her lack of survival knowledge.
Buck Scott turned out to be a patient teacher [and in my mind] a loving, lovable man. The seduction scenes were not overly done and in keeping with the story.
Zach Elliot was back and as great as ever in his supporting, humorous role. Kase was stronger, of course he is 5 years older, and is presented as a more powerful, loving character. And his wonderful wife, Rosa, she is pregnant. Love her character.
I was really happy to see that Kase has taken on the role of collecting amd protecting the Buffalo.
These characters have such real depth that you wish you could go to Wyoming and visit them.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -- should be listed as a keeper and a plus.
