Description

In 1837, Juniper Collins and her sisters are shocked by their father's deathbed request for them to return a special set of beads to a Piegan Blackfoot woman he credits with saving his life during his travels West. Together, the sisters set out for the trapper rendezvous to find the woman, but their mission turns more daunting when they come upon the mass of men and lodges spread out in the Green River Valley.

Riley Turner came West to find peace and quiet and live off the land, but when four unprotected women arrive at the rendezvous, he feels compelled to help them and is more fascinated by Juniper than any other woman he's known.

As their search brings only empty leads and dead ends, the sisters must decide whether to return East or stay in the mountains to continue looking--and that's if the mystery woman is even still alive. Is the risk to honor their father's last request worth the danger they find at every turn?

"What an adventure! Rocky Mountain Rendezvous brought the wilds of the Wyoming area and Juniper's unique story to life."--KIMBERLEY WOODHOUSE, Carol Award-winning and bestselling author

"Brimming with vivid imagery, historical details, and a compelling storyline, this is a book Misty's readers will absolutely adore."
--JEN TURANO, USA Today bestselling author

Featured Reviews

Before beginning to read this book, I was a little skeptical of the basic premise and still remain a bit so. During the time frame mentioned, I am not at all sure that four sisters would undertake a journey to travel from the East Coast to a Rocky Mountain Rendezvous…by themselves. Not only would this have been very socially unacceptable during that time but maybe even considered scandalous behavior. I realize that I am writing this from a male perspective so the reader of this review needs to take that into consideration; perhaps there were adventuresome women who would have attempted this..

But regardless of all that …I found the story to be a really good one; I loved the women showing that they could be every bit as resourceful and competent as any other person. The story was a good one with all sorts of action—from thieves, to Indians (friendly and not so friendly), to men who were looking with lecherous intent, to men willing to accept these competent women on the terms that they desired. So there is maybe something in the story for everyone. I enjoyed seeing such strong female protagonists.

While it is possibly true that some men might find this story not to their liking…but not to read it would be their loss, in my opinion. If one has been around strong, competent, and capable women, there are all sorts of parallels that can be seen. As a man, I’d definitely recommend it to other men willing to go beyond the gender stereotypes and find a really good and uplifting story. This might be one book that could have a different appeal level for different genders but I think it is worth the try for any gender orientation..
