After his botched marriage proposal, Luke McNeil doubts Sarah Worley will reconsider. Sarah believes her half-Native American background eliminates any possibility of marriage to Luke or anyone else. She wants independence and a home of her own. Feeling called by God to enter the 1901 land lottery in the Oklahoma Territory, she ventures out to try her luck. Luke, not one to be dissuaded, follows her. McDonough's final entry in the series (after Gabriel's Atonement; Joline's Redemption) brings to life the sights and sounds of the Oklahoma Territory land lotteries with a vividly drawn setting and colorful, if at times stock, characters. Yet readers will empathize with her endearing protagonists, as they embark on a bumpy road to believing in God's plan for them.
VERDICT McDonough's conclusion to her historical trilogy is a lovely choice for patrons who enjoy Western historical romances involving a journey of the heart. A must-have for series followers.
