Sixteen-year-old Maggie Bennet's life is in tatters. Her mother has disappeared, and is presumed dead. The next thing she knows, her father has dragged Maggie away from their elegant Newport home, off on some mad excursion to Yellowstone in Montana. Torn from the only life she's ever known, away from her friends, from society, and verging on no prospects, Maggie is furious and devastated by her father's betrayal. But when she arrives, she finds herself drawn to the frustratingly stubborn, handsome Tom Rowland, the son of a park geologist, and to the wild romantic beauty of Yellowstone itself. And as Tom and the promise of freedom capture Maggie's heart, Maggie is forced to choose between who she is and who she wants to be.
Janet Fox is a full-time resident of College Station, Texas, and a part-time resident of Montana (just outside of Yellowstone National Park).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dreaming of Books Review The first thing that grabbed my attention with this book was the cover. It’s gorgeous and it fits with the story and it’s exactly how I pictured Yellowstone and the wilds of Montana to look like. Out of all the characters none of them really stood out for me and I thought that they were all very one dimensional. The main character Maggie annoyed me from the beginning. Her father takes her to Yellowstone and she finds herself in a difficult situation where her options are limited. She constantly whines and complains yet doesn’t so anything that might help her get out of this mess. A lot of times I wanted her to speak up or do something instead of meekly complying to whatever she was told to do. Even Tom who I thought I would sweep Maggie off her feet didn’t add much to the story. The pace of the story was especially slow. There was a bit of mystery in the beginning that intrigued me but it took too long to develop and the interest I had in it faded. From reading the book I can tell that the author did a lot of research on Montana and Yellowstone Park in that time period as her descriptions were detailed and seem very accurate. She paints a vivid landscape of the Park and its both majestic but can be deadly and dangerous.
