She's Gone Country
Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: 5 Spot (Aug 23 2010)
I love a story that lets me escape to the country. Handsome cowboys, ranch life, and a simpler life style ... away from the hustle and bustle of the city. She's Gone Country is just that kind of book.
Shey is devastated by the end of her marriage, and moves home with her three boys to the ranch where she grew up. I loved the description of her mother, a strong Baptist woman who still likes to tell her daughter what to do (even though Shey is now 39). Shey's two brothers live nearby, so she often feels like she has no freedom to make her own choices.
And then along comes her old high school sweetheart Dane ... and Shey is immediately transported back to a happier time, and all her teenage dreams surface as though the past 25 years never happened. There are some very serious issues in this book as well, it is much more than a simple romance story.
All in all, a very enjoyable book ... and a great summer read!
