Sixteen-year-old Maggie Bennet's life is in tatters. Her mother has disappeared, and is presumed dead. The next thing she knows, her father has dragged Maggie away from their elegant Newport home, off on some mad excursion to Yellowstone in Montana. Torn from the only life she's ever known, away from her friends, from society, and verging on no prospects, Maggie is furious and devastated by her father's betrayal. But when she arrives, she finds herself drawn to the frustratingly stubborn, handsome Tom Rowland, the son of a park geologist, and to the wild romantic beauty of Yellowstone itself. And as Tom and the promise of freedom capture Maggie's heart, Maggie is forced to choose between who she is and who she wants to be.
To be honest, I picked up this book because of the cover. I mean just look at it. This cover screams, “LOOK AT ME!” So wondrous yet beautiful. It’s like a picture that I can stare at for hours and wondering what is beyond the trees. Because I judged a book by the cover (GASP) I had no idea what this book was about till I actually started reading it.
Plot: I have not read a book based in the older times. You know, cowboys on horses days. It was very interesting and held me quickly. I love historical romance, so this was indeed the perfect book for me. After reading the first book I just knew I had to keep in reading. The plot had lots of drama as well as bread pieces for me to kept following. It leads to more plot twists and a read that left me giddy.
Love: Since this book is based back in the older days, romance was a bit different. I REALLY like it. Call me old fashion but I love the whole idea of actually getting to know the person vs now and days where people skip that part and go straight to be bedroom. I love the dinners, parties, and of course the time period alone.
Ending: This book carried itself beautifully. I adore the way it ended and became excited when I found out there is a second book. I really love how beautifully every word was written and how well it came together.
This is a great historical read! I have discovered another author whom I’m excited to read more books from. Faithful is a fantastic yet thrilling read. Filled with love and loss, Faithful is great.
I give it 4 BITES!
