1867: Emily finds herself stranded in the Montana wilderness with only rugged Nate and his horse for company. Present day: Hope heads into the same Montana wilderness with young rancher Cal Crow. Both couples suffer similar terrible accidents, and we as readers get to follow both their stories, side by side.
I really liked this book. I like Emily and Nate’s story, and I like Hope and Cal’s story too, and the two work really well alongside each other. My main issue is that the present day story takes so long to get going. I’d have liked to read the two stories running parallel on the same sort of timeline, as opposed to one story being so far ahead of the other. It makes Hope’s story feel a little rushed in the second half.
