It is 1886, and the government has given the US Cavalry control of Yellowstone. For widowed hotelier Kate Tremaine, the change is a welcome one. She knows every inch of her wilderness home like the back of her hand and wants to see it protected from poachers and vandals.
Refused a guide by Congress, Lieutenant William Prescott must enlist Kate’s aid to help him navigate the sprawling park and track down the troublemakers. But a secret from his past makes him wary of the tender feelings the capable and comely widow raises in him. When her 6-year-old son is kidnapped by a poacher who wants the boy to guide him to the place where the last of the Yellowstone bison congregate, Will and Kate must work together to rescue him, save the bison, and protect the park. In doing so, they may just find that two wounded hearts can share one powerful love when God is in control.
Nothing Short of Wondrous by Regina Scott is an entertaining historical journey. One that pulls me deep into the lives of the characters. Here, I meet a strong widow who is on a mission. First, she puts the army men to use. Second, she enlists the help to save the buffalo herd in Yellowstone park. Last, Kate ends up finding herself falling for one particular army Lieutenant. The dialogue between these characters is fun to follow. I enjoyed the smart, determined, and funny banters between them. I also loved how one strong woman wanted to save the beautiful park and its natural habitat for all to enjoy viewing. That job alone was not an easy route and it provided enough challenges along the way. Overall, this romantic historical novel is well-written with a story that will stay with me for a long time. Sweet, heartfelt, and engaging cast of characters-Regina Scott captures my undivided attention. I was hooked.
