With apologies to Horace Greeley, this phrase -- Go West, Young Woman -- stayed in my mind as I read "A Heart's Obsession." This is the second volume in Colleen Coble's Journey of the Heart series. We follow the tremendously likeable Sarah Montgomery west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming and the love of her life, Rand Campbell. The series takes place directly after the Civil War and it's a great blend of romance and history. It's not a period I am very familiar with and I very much enjoyed reading about Sarah's life in Wyoming. I am glad that there are four more books in the series and delighted that the next book, "A Heart's Danger" is waiting for me.
One of my goals is to see all fifty states and I have eight, mostly in the west, left to see. I have been to Wyoming, but only for one day and this book definitely makes me want to make return visit. I've had a pull to definitely make a trip west in the next year. I've never been to North or South Dakota, so they are high on my list, as are Zion and Bryce National Parks in Utah. I know there's at least one Buttercupland buddy in Utah, but are there any bloggers from either North or South Dakota in Buttercupland?
I am happy -- actually thrilled -- to welcome a long awaited guest to New York City. Yes, it's our good friend, Spring. So very glad you're here!
As ever thanks for visiting. Take good care and I hope spring is in your neighborhood, too.
Please note, I received a copy of "A Heart's Obsession" from Litfuse Publicity Group to read and review. The opinions are all mine.
