Lukas Yates and the Roses
The story centers around a man who tries to rebuild his life after losing his wife and child during childbirth. After a stint in the army, he travels west where he meets and saves a family from disaster, and it is their relationship that forms the basis of this novel. The plot and character development are excellent, and you really feel the joy and pain that the characters experience as they endure the hardships that are so common in the 1860.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced with a lot of action!! Lowell Volk has done a great deal of research in what it was like emigrating to the West to make a new home. I loved the detail of how things were done each day yet it was not overdone with plenty of action throughout the book. There was some sadness but there was also hope. He portrays characters that no matter what obstacles they encountered their goals were attained. I have read 2 other of his Civil War Series which I would recommend also. I’m on the 3rd of that series now . Debbie
