Beth Gallatin has always dreamed of having a husband, children and living in her town for the rest of her life. Because she moved from place to place growing up she wanted to claim the rugged Montana town of Gallatin home. She is an avid lover of reading dime story romance novels and so she thinks she knows what love should look like and how the hero should act. Nick Lassiter, who has loved Beth since she moved to town, does not exactly fit the picture Beth has painted in her mind. Then when Nick starts to win her heart and unexpected arrival from Nick's past threatens the love that is growing between the two of them. Is their love strong enough to "last forever".
This was book two in this series and I enjoyed getting to know Beth even better in this story. You could read this as a stand alone, but you will miss out on a lot by not starting with book one, "A Promise to Believe In". The three sisters in this series may seem to have their lives put together and are handling things as they come, but each sister is dealing with issues from their past and must come to grip with false notions that are affecting the way they view themselves and others. There is a lot going on in the whole family as you read this story, but it mainly focuses in on Beth, the middle sister. It gives a enlightening insight to the tough and rugged times of growing a town in Montana in the late 1800s. I am looking forward to the next story in this series.
