Not done yet, so I'll just provide a few teasers...

Yeah, so my problem with any "journey" story - is what happens after the learning is done. They tend to lose steam for me, and this one adds some drama at the end to make up for it. All in all though, likeable characters, a young widow just out of mourning and ya know, a man who has survived in the Canadian wilds since childhood. Gaffney's good, though. Just started a one of her contemporary forays into "Women's Fiction" - major glomming happening these days! It's great to find a good author with an extensive backlist. I haven't even found some of the favorites yet!
