Mainstream romance

Two sisters look alike. Their personalities are direct opposites. Cassandra is a spoiled, needy young lady. Sue-Ellen is down-to-earth and cares about people. When Cassie jilted her fiancé, Ethan, a soldier at Fort Clark, Texas, Sue-Ellen couldn't bear for him to be treated so shabbily. She made the treacherous journey by stage coach from their elegant home to the lonely, secluded, Indian, and robber infested area of Fort Clark.
Quite an eventful journey behind her, Sue-Ellen had lost everything—clothes, money, everything she travelled with except her life. Ethan had just been sent away on a mission so she had no choice but to take a job as waitress to try to earn enough money to make her return trip. Making the trip was scary; living in Fort Clark was strenuous. Then when Ethan returned, and Cassie arrived, things got even more interesting.

Ms. Marion Kelley Bullock has written a fun, quick-paced book about a historical situation that was very interesting. Her characters were fresh, interesting, and quite unique. They were as real as personal friends could be. Reading the book was almost like living through the situation. Her secondary characters were well-developed and complimentary to each other.

I really enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to others. This is a book which can be read by anyone of any age. That's refreshing to be able to recommend it to young adults as well.
