First off I would like to thank Tyndale House Publishers for giving me this book to read and review. It was a book that grabs you with alot of characters at the very beginning and alot of action going on. It kept and held my attention all the way through. And the thing that got my attention first off was the beautiful cover on the book. Good job!
Michael Archer is a man who has watched Ben Carstairs hang and is honoring his last request - to let his Father know he tried to do right and that he loved him. So when Michael sets out to find Sam Carstairs, the father, he has no idea what is in store for him. It is a journey that lasts the whole way through the book. When Michael arrives in the town of Riverbend he meets the "stunning" Rachel Stone, who has a past that won't leave her alone, even though she is trying to start fresh in this town. Her and Michael both have memories they would like to forget and they both have a faith in God to help them through tough times. When Sam Carstairs gets kidnapped before Michael has a chance to give him his message, Michael goes along with the posse to rescue him. The posse's journey is a long one and you get to know the sheriff and other men as you travel with them.
This was a book filled with action and danger but also with love and understanding. It was written with an honesty to it, where bad things will happen and not everything will turn out the way you might like it to. Good people die, bad people don't, and the man might not get the girl in the end. Life isn't easy even when someone turns their life over to God, but He does help them through the tough times. I liked how this author wrote, but the ending was a little vague. I am hoping he left it that way for a sequel.
