I found this a fascinating story very well written. The convergence of the two characters in the great flood was brilliantly evoked.

This was a well-written historical romance novel with just enough action to appeal to men also. It's readable and the story pulls you in, and it has strong likable characters. Main drawback: Too many coincidences. Of COURSE Ingersoll just happens to rescue Willy-the-baby/gives him to Dixie Clay/then ends up being in the right place at the right time to rescue them at the novel's end. The flood angle reminds me of In Sunlight In a Beautiful Garden.

This was a solid story that I enjoyed reading. In particular, the flood scene was really well done. I could picture the whole thing happening as if I were watching a movie. There were a few small spots where I thought the story was a bit rushed or underdeveloped but overall it was a good book.
