This Story Draws You Right Inside the Pages (5 Stars)
This is the sequel to, Into the Free, so you have to read that book first or in my opinion you will not understand the depths of this book.
It’s now May 7, 1943 and church bells are ringing for Millie and Bump (Kenneth). After all that happened to her in the first book, Bump was her lifeline! He brought her back to living and loving. Yet, she is still holding back. She’s keeping secrets. But one thing she knows is Bump loves her and she loves Bump.
Their rodeo boss wants them to go out west to run an old cattle/horse ranch he bought and that where they take off to. Only when they get there they see that it’s going to be much more work than they could possibly imagine. But with Bumps encouragement, Millie was all in. It seems like they take turns, when one is down, the other is up, and visa versa. They are the perfect couple. That is until a certain woman, Kat, enters the picture. Will she drive a wedge between them? Will Bump discover Millie’s secret before she can ever get the nerve to tell him? And what ever happened to River? You’ll know who this is from Into the Free.
This book was hard to put down. It pulled me inside the pages and I felt like I was right there with them. Even though I love lots of dialogue, and this book had less than I usually like, it still captivated me. I loved this book. You’ll love this book. But, you have to read, Into the Free, first.
