A changeling among the members of his creative, free-spirited New York family, Roen Shepard hasn’t an artistic bone in his tall, rangy body. Instead, his talents lie in railroad engineering, a skill he intends to put to good use in Frost Falls, CO, as a surveyor for the upcoming railroad. New to town, Roen can’t help but be attracted to young widow Lily Salt; and while she is not in the market for another husband, she can’t help but notice Roen’s kindness and awareness in dealing with her four young children. A wary friendship develops between the two, but neither thinks that a dangerous relationship from Roen’s former life would result in a marriage of convenience for them—or that it would eventually become something more.
VERDICT Crisp descriptions, insightful character development, and four savvy kids bring depth to this romantic historical charmer that is pure gold. Goodman (A Touch of Flame) lives in West Virginia.
