Series Wild West Wind by Lauraine Snelling book #3"A Place to belong"
When their show went bankrupt, Cassie was devastated that her Uncle would let them all go, she left with an old wagon-her horse "Wind Dancer" -George the old buffalo who was gentle as a lamb and little else...Cassie soon found an old letter and realized that her father had been part owner of Bar E Ranch in South Dakota, she had a place to go.
Cassie Lockwood knew all there was to know about a wild west show, how to shoot-working with buffalo and other animals but here in South Dakota where her father Adam had lived and worked she was like a "fish out of water"...Cassie had always yearned for a home in one place and a family to share things with but this was going to take some getting used to.
Lucas Engstrom wanted to court and marry her soon after he met this wonderful pretty girl. He loved her spirit and truth be known they were "kindred spirits" because Lucas was a go getter,he was not happy being at the ranch working each day and would many times find reasons to be gone from the ranch. He was not like his solid take charge responsible brother Ransom, they were as different as night and day. She come to care for the family but knew in her heart of hearts that she cares for Lucas like a brother not a husband. She loved his mother Mavis who becomes like a mentor teaching her all she needs to know about running a home in this wild country. Many a marriage had been good ones on a close friendship that turned to love later through years of working together in a home, could she marry Lucas and become part of the wonderful ranch she is fast coming to love....
Cassie was a quick learner and did many of the chores well but she was more comfortable with her horse "Wind Dancer" whom she had been a trick rider with in the shows then in the home.
As time moves along Cassie feels as if she has found a place to Belong on this ranch with these wonderful people yet her heart yearns for the "Wild West Shows" she had been a part of for so long.
Can she have both? read and learn how hard times shows them they can. I enjoyed reading this series from Lauraine
