Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts proves that you can’t resist the forces of nature in this heartwarming tale.

When her pregnant sister is restricted to bed rest, Samantha Evans leaves the traffic-choked streets of Philadelphia for the majestic mountains and wide-open plains of Wyoming to help her. And while Samantha can appreciate the natural beauty of the land, she has no plans to stay - even if she's intrigued by Jake Tanner, a wealthy rancher who's left a trail of broken hearts in his wake.

But when a blizzard strands them together, Samantha begins to understand how powerful the pull of the West - and Jake - can be.

Disappointed

The narrator made all the male characters sound the same she was very flat no excitement in her voice. The story didn’t have much substance.

Male interpretation

The readers make voice ruined it. It sounded like she was trying to sound like an old lady. Not romantic

Boring for NR!

Besides a dull (not awful) story, the narrator's voice of the male lead sounds like he's 80 so it was difficult to picture a young woman attracted to him.

Lovely romance

Nora Roberts is just wonderful! She never fails to delight with her books. I highly recommend this light love story. Both hero and heroine are really strong characters. Nice balance of humour throughout story.

Arabians

it was a good story after all. I did finish the book. I don't think any rancher in Wyoming writes Arabians on a daily basis checking cows and fence. I tried to get through the book without picturing Jake as an older woman with a smoker's voice.

Typical Nora Roberts

Horrible narrator. You always have a voice in your head on how the characters sound. You, of course, need to adjust with a narrator but this one was so bad I almost couldn’t stand to listen to the whole thing. I won’t purchase another one narrated by her.

One of my favorites

I have a very well loved paperback copy of this and it’s still one of my favorites to read and the audiobook is just as good! Being an older book of Nora’s and part of am collection it’s shorter and not as elaborate as most of her newer writing. But the story is interesting and fun.

Loved SONG OF THE WEST

Wonderfully written. Loved the story, and have always been fascinated by the deep rich timbre of Joyce Bean's voicing of the different characters. And her range!! She lends so much in bringing out just what the story needs.
