Book Review - A Heart's Obsession


Will Sarah's journey west lead her back into the arms of the one man she can trust?

When her father succumbs to a long illness, Sarah Montgomery is freed from duty to family. At last she can be with the love of her life, Rand Campbell, who has gone out west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Sarah and her younger brother Joel make the arduous journey filled with hope.

But at Fort Laramie, the reception Sarah meets isn't what she had hoped for. Her friend Amelia is thrilled to have her, but Rand seems to be in the clutches of Jessica DuBois, the scheming daughter of the post commander.

Sarah resolves to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . especially when her ex-fiancé Ben Croftner arrives in Wyoming, obsessed with having her back in his arms.

This is book two in the "Journey of the Heart" series. You really need to read the first book to truly understand what is going on, although, the author does a good job of catching us up on the storyline.

As the story opens, we find Rand ready to get on the train to go west to Wyoming and the army fort he has been posted to. His heart is broken because he believes Sarah has chosen her family over him. As he leaves, he gives his brother a medal he made her and asks him to give it to her and tell her he wishes her happiness.

Sarah is heartbroken that Rand would actually leave without her. She has always loved Rand and always will. When her father dies, she makes the decision to get out from under her brother's thumb and go west with her friend and her husband, taking her younger brother with her.

At Fort Laramie, Rand is moving on with his life. When Sarah shows up there, he's shocked but keeps his heart at a distance.  We also see Ben moving forward with his evil plans toward Sarah and he affects much more than Sarah with his evil ways.

This is an excellent book and I read it in one sitting! I'm anxious to read book 3 and see what happens next. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
