    This is a lovely book It s filled with wonderful characters, all very real and human Col may be illiterate, a man who s lived by his wits since the age of nine, but he s a man who can see beauty and goodness Accustomed to the freedom and isolation of a mountain man s life, he longs to return to the wilderness until he meets Brianna who makes him yearn for a permanent place, for the first time in his life Brianna is immersed in the mindset of the time as to a woman s place She believes herse This is a lovely book It s filled with wonderful characters, all very real and human Col may be illiterate, a man who s lived by his wits since the age of nine, but he s a man who can see beauty and goodness Accustomed to the freedom and isolation of a mountain man s life, he longs to return to the wilderness until he meets Brianna who makes him yearn for a permanent place, for the first time in his life Brianna is immersed in the mindset of the time as to a woman s place She believes herself the cause of the abuse she suffers at her husband Barret s hands, and sees the loss of her sister and friends as some kind of punishment Even when she admits her love for Col, she refuses to act on it because she s married and she won t break that final vow Barrett is a typical wife abuser A coward and a bully, he sees it as his right to punish the woman he s suppose to protect The minor characters are also well portrayed, showing the different classes and people from various walks of life an upper class French mercantile owner, a widow with a man hungry daughter, a man and his younger brother, the lecherous wagonmaster, a French trapper Each and everyone is detailed enough to make them interesting and involve the reader in their part in the story, no matter how brief.The hardships of the pioneers is related in detail, and one can almost feel the heat, the dust and grime, and the aching muscles from walking all day besides a team of oxen pulling a conestoga The beauty of the Great Plains is here, too, as well as its cruelty, a land so different from the ones these people have left behind as they travel toward a new life Some didn t make it Their graves lay in Ash Hollow and in unmarked spots along the trail Others, Like Col and Brianna had their hopes realized, but only after much suffering.If I d had time, I would ve read this in one sitting As it was, I had to space it out over three days Having ridden the Oregon Trail through Nebraska, lived on the banks of the North Platte, seen Windlass Hill, the names carved into the Register of the Desert, and the graves at Ash Hollow, I probably enjoyed itthan someone who hasn t actually viewed the landmarks Nevertheless, anyone who likes the story of the Western Movement, or just a plain good love story, will like this novel.I recommend it.Tender Touch is available from Smashwords, novel was supplied by the author and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review
