Publisher's Summary

Julie Garwood triumphed with her phenomenal For the Roses and her #1 New York Times bestselling trio of novels, One Pink Rose, One White Rose and One Red Rose. Now, she brings her irresistible and heartwarming wit to a delightful love story featuring the unforgettable frontier family, the Claybornes of Blue Belle, Montana.

Cole Clayborne had always walked a dark path and flirted with a life of crime. While his three brothers chose to settle into married life, Cole rebelliously refused to be tied down. Now, an elusive stranger draws him into a shadowy chase that will bring unexpected turns to his uncertain future - and may determine which side of the law the restless Cole favors. A tragic, heartbreaking loss drives U.S. Marshal Daniel Ryan on a quest for vengeance - and leads him to a beautiful young woman, the sole witness to a terrible crime. But the lawman finds that love is the greatest trial of all as he unwittingly draws her into the line of fire. The power and drama of their blossoming passion, entwined with the surprising destiny of the wayward Cole, make Come the Spring a superbly entertaining adventure inside the heart of "a family whose love and loyalty will truly inspire." (Romantic Times).

A darn good yarn

Would you consider the audio edition of Come the Spring to be better than the print version?

The narrator brings it alive. Almost like watching it.

What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The characters voices, although his Scottish accent could do with a little work 😜

A great story an inconsistent narrator

What made the experience of listening to Come the Spring the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the characters and as the last of a series it was an impressive finale.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The beauty of this book is that all the characters major and minor stand out. I enjoyed both the good guys and the bad guys. I can visualize the villains and the heroes as well as all the supporting players (why I think it is a 5 star story).

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mikael Naramore?

Richard Ferrone who gave an excellent performance in the Recorded books release in 1998. I think a male narrator is a good choice but Naramore characters and emotional passages were very inconsistent. He over did female emotions and southern black dialect.

Best Clayborne book of all!

This is the story of Cole Clayborne, the toughest of the brothers. Drafted to help capture a group of murdering thieves, Cole makes friends and finds love. It is a novel from 1997 filled with adventure and romance. Worth the effort!

Second time through this series

I throughly enjoyed this series the first time I listened to it and I enjoyed it even more this time. Julie, you are an amazing author. You made the life altering experiences of each character come to life. It is sad that our world has so many heart wrenching truths in our past and our present. But you remind us that many people do climb above their tragedies and make life for themselves and the people around them full of love and kindness. Thank you Mikael you are narrator extraordinaire at making Julie’s characters come to life. Your abilities to change from character to character, accent to accent, and male to female and back again astound me. Thank you PS ❤️ Also, thank you Julie for your ability to write a story without every other word being a profanity. It seems that many authors are unable to write a decent story without entire paragraphs being punctuated with profanity. It’s as if the author has a word quota for the story and the profanity enables them to complete their quota. Profanity slips out on occasion in our normal lives but an entire sentence with a profanity as every other word is totally unnecessary to the telling of the story. Thank you 😊 Julie

Recommended

An excellent rendition on a terrific story. This story concludes the Clayborn family series. At least the historical portion. You will find Noah Clayborn (a great great grandson plays a part in many of the Contemporary stories by Julie Garwood). This is a terrific family and their goings on are captivating. This story like the rest in the series stands on it's own but is enhanced when read in series.

Love the characters and suspense

Excellent series. Good characterization, appropriate suspense, captivating mystery, descriptive adventure, and enticing romance. This book was a quality conclusion to the Claybournes. Highly recommend all three books....in order.

I love Julie Garwood. Her stories have humor and mystery in them with the romance.
