About the Book:
Eli Oleson killed a man.
Never mind that he did it to save the lives of others, it’s eaten his soul to shreds. Nothing matters. When he injures himself breaking a horse, he has little reason to recover, except for the feisty English nurse who keeps pestering him.
Anne Hammond is a skilled nurse, trained in curing the sick and treating the wounded, but some wounds don’t heal as easily.
She’s seen war and heartache and left England for the American west to forget the images that haunt her. When a cowboy, broken in more ways than she can see, winds up on her examining table, will she be skilled enough to assist in his healing? Or will his wounds only open the ones she thought she’d left behind?

I really enjoyed this entire series. Each hovering around 4 hours in length, they aren’t incredibly long but you are still able to feel satisfied that you are getting a complete story. For the most part I thought the narrator did a great job, but I thought the moments where he attempted a British accent needed improvement. As I mentioned in my thoughts on the other books in the series, I appreciate when a male narrator doesn’t make female voices sound wimpy and squeaky, and this narrator does a great job with that.
I always appreciate a book that ignites empathy. The main characters in this story were struggling with intense feelings of guilt in their lives even though the events that led to those feelings were largely out of their control. They were also living in fear of judgment from others. It was beautiful to see how they helped each other heal despite feelings that they were beyond help.
I really enjoyed this series and fully plan on reading more from the author in the future. I encourage reading it in order since the end of each book contains important details for the following one. I recommend these books to fans of historical fiction and historical romance.
