“Mary Crofter was a very interesting character. I instantly liked and appreciated her growth as the story developed. I admired her strength and courage. Even though her life was filled with challenges, she was always focused and certain about her destiny.”
“This is a really a wonderful story. Will Mary find true love and still be able to stay on the land or will she have to give up one love for another? I give this book a 4/5.”

“This book took me on quite the adventure and I enjoyed every minute of it! The romance between Mary and Andrew wasn’t half bad either although it did feel like it happened very quickly. But other than that this book was enjoyable and if you’re looking for an adventure with likable character’s then I suggest you check it out! Just make sure to start with the first book I, Walter!”
