The Forever Sky is book 4 on Voigt’s Montana Gold series and features several characters from earlier volumes. Although the primary characters are Maisey and Rob, it was fun to catch up with Shane and America. Widowed Maisey’s daughter Phoebe also added an entertaining addition to the story.
In this novel, Rob has returned after three years away, hoping to continue his future with Maisey but she isn’t interested in letting him hurt her again. Unfortunately she is unable to keep her heart under control and the love she had for Rob refuses to remain buried. Every time Rob thinks he might have another chance, something happens to cause another misunderstanding and once again his hope is battered. How can he prove to the wounded Maisey that he loves her and can be trusted with her heart?
I always love a good historical novel, especially one with a western setting. The Forever Sky contains a steady plot, excellent characterization, and enough action, danger, and suspenseful moments to hold a reader’s attention. A touch of humor and a complicated romance add extra interest to this exciting tale. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all historical fiction lovers.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Title: The Forever Sky
Series: Montana Gold, Book 4
Author: Janalyn Voigt
Publisher: Mountain Brook Ink
Release Date: December 1, 2019
Genre: Western/Historical Romance
Can a young widow with no faith in love, hope for a future with the man who broke her heart?
Maisey isn’t about to give Rob another chance to reject her love. Why should she believe that the man who left town without a backward glance three years ago cares about her? Life had taught her all about broken dreams, and she didn’t want to hope again. If only her young daughter would stop adopting Rob as a father, ignoring him—and her own emotions–would be a whole lot easier.
Thoughts of the woman he’d left behind haunted Rob for three long years. It wouldn’t have been fair to ask Maisey to wait while he mined a gold claim. After making his fortune, he’d returned to his family in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. Rob was ready to settle down, and he’d rather do so with Maisey. But after their first encounter, it was clear that he’d lost her forever.
Circumstances force Maisey and Rob into one another’s company. They learn, through hardship and loss, that the only way to one another is to surrender first to God’s love.
Based on actual historical events during a time of unrest in America, The Forever Sky explores faith, love, and courage in the wild west.
