This is a story of adventure, romance, comedy and lots of other emotions. I loved the book once I got about 1/3rd the way through. The main characters, Ruth and Marshall McCall make a trip through freezing weather and injured bodies. They also have another person they are responsible for during the trip. The book tells of the events and trials the couple endures along the way. Ruth turns to God for her strength due to a strong faith she possesses. She does what she can to convince Mcall that God loves him and cares what happens to him. He has a hard time believing her because of his rearing by a woman that preached hell and damnation and not the love of God. Ruth is to be admired for her determination, strength, endurance, and her faith in God to take her through anything this life deals to her.

I was so excited to see this newest Brides of the West ... My sister and I both wondered if this was the same Lori Copeland who wrote Faith, Hope and June (and Glory). Ruth just dragged on and on, it was so shallow and repetitive. This series, while not Pulitzer Prize material, has delivered some good laughs and fun stories. But Ruth struggled. I don't want to ruin what story there is but here's the jist: Ruth can't have children, falls in love AND finds a baby in need, then spends the rest of the book wondering if today was the day they would die trying to get to shelter. Pages and pages of "if we don't make it today I just don't know what will become of us". And the romance was too forced and too fast. Nothing unpredictable. I guess if I hadn't enjoyed the other books in the series so much, this one might do but be sure you don't skip those in favor of this one!
