Book Description: In 1883, the railroad had only recently come to
and outlaws still lurked in the hills. Willow Gallagher, who spent her early
childhood in an outlaw camp until her father finally found her, is torn by
divided loyalties. Newly married to handsome railroad baron Gideon Marshall,
she finds fiery passion in Gideon’s embrace, until she discovers he is on a
mission . . . a mission to capture Montana Territory Willow’s
outlaw brother, Steven. Now Willow
must choose—betray her brother, or risk the love she has found with Gideon, the
love she has dreamed of all her life, to save Steven. It is a choice that could
break her heart. . . .
My Thoughts: Linda Lael Miller is the queen of western romance, whether it’s contemporary or historical.
was first published in 1984; this is the expanded version that was re-released
in 2010. Willow
is the story of a strong-willed young woman torn between love for her outlaw
brother and her railroad baron husband who is out to capture him. I absolutely
adore this book; it is my all-time favorite western historical. I loved the
back story of the posse that killed Willow’s
mother and stepfather; the intense passion that developed between Willow and Gideon; and the secondary love stories,
especially Steven and Daphne, and Willow’s
father and his mistress Dove.
