About this book

The Homestead Act of 1862 was the match that lit millions of Americans dreams back east of wanting to own their own land out west. Each married couple was         eligible to own 160 acres of land out west if they lived on the land, built a home and farmed it for five years. Marble, Colorado was one such small town that held the promise of work in the silver or marble mines.

Was It Fate Or Destiny? © 2011 by Raymond Cook is a 258 page story about Emily Brown, a 26 year old widow and her two children, Tommy age seven and Sarah six homesteading in the Crystal River Valley outside Marble, Colorado. Her husband Jess was a miner killed in a card room brawl at Kate’s Saloon in 1890. Look through her eyes at the challenges she faces trying to raise and protect her children alone outside of town.

With Jess buried behind her cabin Emily doesn’t feel she can ever allow herself to fall in love with any other man. Travel back in time and see her meet Sam Bates, a kind but shy ranch hand bunking at the Triple R Ranch. See the struggle each of them endure trying to share their feelings for each other and her love she had for Jess before they allow their love to grow.

See through their eyes after they marry the strength it takes to survive the harsh    Colorado Rocky mountain winters where one day it can be blue sky and the next, four feet of snow. Three years later Sam discovers a jar of gold coins hidden in an old apple tree he chops down and their new found wealth nearly gets Sam murdered by two men seeking work as ranch hands. Tommy ends up saving families life from the killer’s.

Feel the terror in Emily’s heart as her family is terrorized by a grizzly bear. When Sam buys his children their own pony, he also buys Emily a horse for her birthday. After Sarah breaks her leg falling as she tried to put a baby owl back a barn rafter; Sam uses Sarah’s love for her new pony to help get to walk again. When the time comes for Marble to build their first schoolhouse, all four of Sam, Emily, Sarah and Tommy ride to town as a family as Emily wonders if it was “Fate Or Destiny?” that brought Sam into her life the day they first met on the dusty road as she lay on the ground crying beside her wagon.

What a great story. This is what I would call a “comfort” read. You just sit back & living the simple life in the 1800’s in Marble, Colorado. Some readers would consider this book boring but I found it to be very entertaining & it really gives you a good look as to what the daily lives of people during this time would experience. Those people worked so hard it makes you tired just thinking about everything they had to do to just survive. It begins when Sam Bates encounters Emily Brown & her two children, Tommy & Sarah on the side of the road.
The wheel to their buckboard has broken & they are stranded. Sam takes the broken wheel into Marble & after getting It fixed returns to get the Brown family back on their way home. Thus begins a strong attraction between the two. Emily has lost her husband Jess & is trying to hold on to her ranch & raise her children with practically nothing. There are a couple of exciting happenings but mainly it’s about the hardships & happenings of just survival in the early west.
This is a clean, lovely book that any historical western fan will love. I highly recommend it & I plan on reading all of the westerns offered by this author because he is great. He immediately involves the reader in the story & characters & events both good & bad that shaped our country.
