    Such a touching and emotional story. The perfect final chapter in a fantastic series.

    Zoe is all grown up and ready to head off to college, but things may not work out like she had hoped. Segregation is in full force and that impacts where Zoe can go.

    Alf has always had feelings for Zoe, but things need to be put on hold, as he and Zoe are not allowed to go to the same college.

    Things get complicated when they both make new friends while away from each other. They need to search their feelings and decide what is truly in their hearts.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

    Just when I need a good listen, Barbara Goss releases an audiobook. A little bit of everything included, I was able to enjoy a slow burn romance, a little suspense, a new beginning and a lot of hope and love! When Joanna comes to Hayes to marry, she anticipates a young ranch owner, but is greeted with a drunk man, much older than she expects who owns a pig ranch. Escaping her certain fate of marriage, she hurts her foot and is rescued by Jared, a trapper who lives in a cabin in the woods. Can this be her destiny? I love a good old fashioned western, and Goss always makes sure I get a good flavor of that time period. With the old hotel, the saloon and even a gunfight we are transported back in time to enjoy this romance. Old flames, new flames and good family ties all thrown in, this is a feel good, warm hearted book.

    Susan Fouche does a spectacular narration of this book. Her talent is used to the max with the characters, from Joanna and Jared all the way to the town gossips! She has an incredible array of voices, and each one shines with personality. She is the perfect choice for this portrayal.

    Loved it!
    I’m glad that Barbara took the subject of, Interracial marriage and the treatment of “colored” people, on! She sheds some powerful light on the topic! My favorite quote from this book: “…Skin color is just like the color of someone’s eyes to me.” Sarah said. “Brown or blue, the person is the same.”
    I enjoyed the narration as well. He added a lot to the story even if he sounded a bit too modern at times.

    I listened to this on audio. It was great to listen to this story. Interracial love in a historical western is something you do not read about a lot. I loved the writing about her hair getting done. It made me chuckle. I have had this conversation with a friend who is biracial about hair. I am so glad you touched on that. I loved the story and flow of this book. I am looking forward to reading or listening to the next in the series.
