Written by Dorothy Garlock, this is a satisfying romance novel about a very likable couple during the great depression. It's an interesting story set in a quiet little town in Oklahoma which I have never visited and am glad to learn about the Native Indian heritage and cowboy culture. It's an entertaining novel about the good old fashion romance that developed in the midst of an intriguing mystery behind a small mid-western town. For once in a long time, I finished reading a book without cursing myself for wasting time on an illogical and poorly written story that has self-centered, stupid and confused heorines. The book's author writes a lot better than a lot of the contemporary romance authors nowadays. It's interesting how authors from the older generation seem to write better English than younger ones... Why ?
