Will Buffy and Wyatt ever see eye-to-eye? Buffy Lange has spent her life learning about and caring for buffalo. She's landed the job of her dreams, managing a huge buffalo ranch in South Dakota. With stars in her eyes, she imagines all of the Midwest given over to free-ranging buffalo. To her, buffalo embody beauty, majesty, and strength.To Wyatt Shaw, however, the buffalo are a constant threat- wild, untamable, and dangerous. Wyatt's ranch adjoins the Buffalo Commons and he watches in trepidation as its owner expands and rides roughshod over the local ranchers. When disaster strikes, Wyatt's worst fears are realized and Buffy can do nothing but clean up the mess. With one determined to rid the area of buffalo and the other determined to see them flourish, the dust seldom settles around these two. Will they ever be able to find a common ground?
I found this book when I was in Adelaide before Christmas and got excited cos I love Mary's books. I finished this last night and it is as good as any she has written. This one is set in modern times but still has all the feel of the wide open spaces. Buffy loves buffalo and wants to save them from extinction where as Wyatt has a totally different feeling about buffalo as he is a cattle rancher. Add a set of very energetic twin boys and a your niece with her dysfunctional mother you have the makings of a wonderful story. The sparks between Buffy and Wyatt are interesting to watch. I loved the story and found I was reading it way quicker than I realized. There are 2 more books set in the same time frame and area and I am looking forward to reading them soon.
