Cute story, but not what I expected. One thing really bothered me though, the heroine's continuing the lie without thinking about the real Claire, and if she could be alive somehow, maybe with amnesia or finding out for sure that she was dead? She keeps lying and does not think about finding the body until after the halfway point in the book. 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars. ( )

When Sarah is befriended by Steven on the train west, and then is presumed to be Steven's pregnant widow after the crash, Sarah just keeps quiet, letting Steven's family care for her and her newborn while she recovers from a broken leg & childbirth. She doesn't count on falling in love with Steven's brother Nicholas at all. ( )

Book description

Coldly rejected as a family embarrassment by her arrogant Bostonian father, Sarah Thornton heads west to make a new life for herself and her expected child, only to have her world turned upside down when a stranger's kindness and a chance train wreck provide her with a new identity, a new reason to live?and a new burden of guilt. The sexual tension simmers relentlessly between the conflicted heroine and the rigid but redeemable hero; and although a lack of trust leads to frustrating misunderstandings and a too conveniently greedy villainess detracts from the story, the many well-drawn characters?including an appallingly bawdy, drunken mother?and the heroine's inherent kindness and sense of honor will please readers who like their romances gently paced.
