Lafayette Riordan, or “Faye,” as his family lovingly calls him, is tired of being known as the baby of the family. Always the weak one, Faye is ready to be a man. Only trained in art, he is brutally beat up while trying to be chivalrous. It is then he decides to lay down his paintbrush, and instead take up a gun. He proceeds to train himself to be a US Marshall, never realizing how much his life would change.
I thought this book was unbelievably good. From the descriptions, to the characters, to the historical background, Gilbert Morris nailed it. As usual, Gilbert weaved historical fact effortlessly into this beautifully written novel. I am amazed at how much research he must do for his books. If you have ever read any of His books, you will know that it takes a few chapters to get into, but the end product is SO worth it! It is fantastic how great this book’s content was. I loved the characters, and I adore how Gilbert wrote out the salvation scene. Overall, I would recommend this book to ANYONE who enjoys the Wild West, Historical fiction, or a pure and sweet love story!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review (via Netgalley)
