Maggie is torn with with Tom , and the promises of freedom that captures her heart. Maggie went to a special place to search for what she lost, her Mother. Maggie found a life she did not expect. She discovered love.
The author of this novel prefers the mountains of Montana. Ms. Fox the author, depicts well the surroundings of the mountains in Yellowstone.
To me the novel is real, and very informative about people transporting themselves on wagons.
Another person, Mrs. Gale showed Maggie the techniques of shooting photos of her beautiful surroundings. Mrs. Gale became good friends with Maggie.
The novel is a good read.
