Emmie’s hope for a life with Isaac is overshadowed by a tragic loss at Fort Phil Kearny.
Isaac Liddle is keen to marry Emmie, and she knows she shouldn’t hide her pregnancy from him any longer. But before she can tell him her secret, a widower friend asks the impossible of Emmie: Will she honor her promise to his dead wife by marrying him to care for the orphaned baby?
With the Sioux Wars threatening outside the fort, Emmie’s solemn vow threatens her happiness from within. Will she honor a promise sure to break her heart—and Isaac’s? Or is there another way to find a home for her heart?
My opinion: I was ready for this series to be over. Filled with melodrama, catastrophe after catastrophe and not very engaging characters I did not find this to be one of Ms. Coble's finer series. One of the only upsides to it is that the books are very short and easy to read. These books have a ton of drama and yet it always seems to work out for the main characters in the end. Some people might find this series enjoyable,but I did not find much merit in it. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
