Her struggles to protect it from being ravaged for coal put her in greater danger than she ever imagined — and back in the arms of the man she never stopped loving. But the man responsible for changing her life so many years ago is determined to keep her under his control. When she decides to break free, will Sadie and Dillon’s bond be strong enough to endure the truth about his identity?
I have to say that I loved this book. This is a book that was so easy to get emotionally involved. I kept finding myself so into Sadie. You were happy at the time when she was. You wanted to cry when she was hurting. Sadie had to get passed what had happened to her ten years later after she came home to her dying mother. The one person that she loved her entire love was there. They rekindle there love. It was not easy for them. She had lied to him about who rape her. When he finds out who was the person at first he did not want to believe it. Sadie thought this was the end for them. But you have to read to see if they make it thru this or go on together. I have to say I wished this book was a series because I was a little upset that they store had to end
Originally from Wasilla, Alaska, I now live in Northern California in my first real house with my husband, John, daughter, Elise, and our two mutts, a beagle and an Australian terrier. I’m a vegetarian with a unique accent that merges Alaskan vowels with Valley Girl, and I love Ryan Gosling—but who doesn’t. The eco-theme in my book comes from being Healthy Child Healthy World’s first ever Mom on a Mission in late 2009. My story was featured in People Magazine, Lifetime‘s Remarkable Women series, The Sacramento News and Review, and is a highlighted story on the advocacy website Care2. Sadie’s Mountain is my debut novel.
