      I really enjoyed this book, which is usually the case when I read Janice Holt Giles The characters are all great, the history of the time period is interesting, and the romance is understated but sweet and engaging. The writing style in this one struck me as a bit different than her others that I have read It is quite wordy and extra descriptive in places, of both the natural world and the thoughts the characters are having. It flows very naturally though, kind of like a river, now that I think [...]

      Read the paperback edition.Great, likeable characters who truly appreciate the simple life which, unfortunately, becomes not all so simple when they are thrown into the midst of the conflict between north and south on the Green River of Kentucky.The slavery is taken as just a given part of their lives. I however, found it amazing to think that people actually "owned" other people so casually. Exciting, heart-warming, suspenseful. Very well written.

      Not my type of book. However, that being said, it was incredibly well written, and a fairly historically-accurate tribute to the steamboat industry in Kentucky at the commencement of the Civil War.
