Why read it?

1 author picked Conagher as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Evie Teal is a widow whose husband rode out for cattle and never came back, leaving her alone in the wilderness with two children and only guesses as to how he could have died.

Neither thinks the other could possibly be interested in them, and the quiet, understated love story just draws you in.
