I purchased this book when it first was released, packed it away when we moved. Lost in the archives, I'm ashamed that it took me this long to read it. The sequel to Innocent Heart, this center's on one of my favorite characters from the previous book, Mae and a new character Vance, a surgeon who lost her arm during the civil war. The attraction was immediate and the romance slow to develop. Radclyfee did a great job of describing the surgeral procedures of the time as well the difficulties that women faced. As with all of Radclyfee's books, there where plenty of cameos from the characters of Innocent Hearts. I loved the growth of Kate and her mother's acceptance of her love for Jessie. The only drawback too me was that there wasn't a lot of back story about Mae. Touched on, yes but not told in any real detail. Still a great book and I hope that Radclyfee would do more in this genre. Highly recommended.
As usual, Radclyffe delivers a great book. This one is better than usual tho.
Her writing just keeps getting better and the storyline of this book is new and refreshing. She does a good job with westerns, hope there are more to come.
Love the way the characters are not so wimpy. Frankly, I'm quite tired of books where at least one of the strong characters is always breaking into tears and having to be comforted by the other.
Also glad to see that there is no big emphasis on the elderly, sweet caregiver that always "understands" everything. For some odd reason almost every lesbian book out there has to have this character.
Additionally, I like having 4-main characters fully developed and the action is plentiful.
I just wish we could have more stories where the main people already know and love each other and are partners in the action, without having to spend 3/4ths of the book enduring the typical "does she love me?" and the ever popular "I'm not good enough for her" themes.
Our author always has a gifted way of hitting the mark with deeper sensual/sexual emotions and actions that most authors just skim over or miss altogether. She also manages to throw in some lesbian relationship humor that makes us all relate. This story is no exception and will not disappoint.
Good job on this book. I was right there in old west Montana with them the whole time.
This book was one of Ms Radclfyffe's best novels. I have read a number of them and really, really liked this one. Her character development was well done. There was much more of a story in this one compared to some others of hers which seem to have more sex than substance.

This second book from series (first book is Innocent Hearts) resumes with Kate and Jessie settled into their new life together. This story, though, centers around Mae, the small town's madam, and Dr Vance Phelps, an injured war hero and doctor. The author leads us through a journey of unconventional romantic pairings, drama and most of all, a love story. The characters and scenes are vivid and dimensional. The plot is satisfying. Read first book before this one and you will be delighted on solid closure of earlier storylines.
