Item description for Spring of My Love (Silver Hills Trilogy, Book 3) by Ginny Aiken...
Overview She was a woman alone, trying to make her way in a man's world. How far would the town go to stop her? The winter of 1894 was especially cruel to Angel Rogers. Her beloved father, Oliver "Old Man" Rogers, had passed away, leaving eighteen-year-old Angel alone, with no one to help her run the family's sprawling sheep ranch. When the following spring brings little rain, Angel has only her faith-and Rogers Creek, the only water in Hartville-to see her through. Rancher Jeremy Johnstone can do nothing but watch helplessly as his herds slowly die of thirst. In desperation, he calls upon Angel to gain access to the precious but limited water-but finds himself trying to win her heart as well. But to what lengths are other ranchers willing to go in order to gain access to Rogers Creek? Will Angel's desire to keep her ranch outweigh the calling of her heart? Or is she willing to sacrifice everything-even her life-to keep her father's legacy alive?
Community Description Angel Rogers is alone; in the world. With both her mother and father gone, the fiery young woman is left to run Rogers Ranch on her own. Not an easy task for anyone in 1894, especially in the midst of a drought that has nearby ranchers desperate for the water on her land. So it is that rancher Jeremy Johnson some to call upon Angel, hoping to strike a bargain that will allow his cattle to graze on the fertile Rogers land and drink from its sparkling waters. Instead, he finds himself increasingly drawn to Angel, and finds he wants her love more than anything else. But to what lengths are other ranchers willing to go in order to gain access to Rogers Creek? And what is Angel willing to sacrifice to keep her ranch from falling into the wrong hands?

Reviews - What do customers think about Spring of My Love (Silver Hills Trilogy, Book 3)?
Excellent story, nicely written Dec 10, 2006
My one nit with the book is that if I read "right" or "sugar" one more time I'm gonna get violent:-) Other than that, the dialogue's great, the characters are realistic, charming or stubborn as they may be. The story's nicely paced, things actually happen, not just a they meet and fall in love sort of deal...far from it actually.
Aiken's got a nice style and knows how to create distinctive voices for her characters. I wouldn't say this is my fav of the series, but I liked each of the 3 books in their own way. They're well worth owning and reading.
#3 of Silverhills Trilogy was my favorite! Feb 5, 2006
Angel, 18, has been left a large spread at the death of her father. Her "crop" is sheep instead of the more popular cattle in this part of Colorado. She also has the ONLY source of water and a drought has been bad for the area. Therefore, many ranchers are just itching to get her land with its' water.
Angel intends to honor her dad by carrying on, by herself, what he built and was his pride and joy. Most men did not see her as capable though, and started making her offers of various sorts. She refused them all and stood her ground, earning the reputation as being more stubborn than a mule and a wild, mad mountain woman.
It is only after Angel is severly injured does she accept even the slightest amount of help from her neighbor, Jeremy. She resents the intrusion into her private life, but she is unable to carry out her obligations without Jeremy.
This book takes place and overlaps characters with the first two of the trilogy which makes for very interesting glimpses into the lives of characters we met earlier. April has made friends with 4-5 of the hard working women in town and enemies of most of the men.
Some very heavy chapters will leave the reader unable to put the book down for fear we will lose our dear Angel to the angry, greedy men who are losing all they own. I think this is the best of the three books and a very tender love story along with being very deep and distressing at times.
