4.5 starsI loved the lead characters. Sally is the kind of leading woman I would love to see more of. She was genuine, smart, well educated, independent, compassionate, beautiful inside and out. A real shinning example of what we expect from a modern age girl. The story had a good pace; it allowed us to get to know the characters and sympathize with them. Having read few of Baird's other stories, there could have been a bit more of the wonderful gut ranching emotions I have seen worked in other stories.
