Set in the 1890’s in a Minnesota mining town, this book is about two families – the Panetta’s and the Calarcos. According to the back of the book, these families “have been sworn enemies for decades”, and they have no desire to have anything to do with each other. At least, not until two of their children become friends, fall in love, and want to make peace. Oh, the trouble that comes when those two start plotting to get their families to become at least friendly with each other! Some of this story line was predictable, but the vast majority of it wasn’t at all. I really enjoyed following along with the story, watching how the families handled situations and how they worked together (eventually!), and seeing what happens as two sisters fall in love with two brothers.
I would absolutely recommend this book to others – it is very well written and a truly engaging read from the start to the end! I am looking forward to reading more by this author!
