Can the local girl who secretly loves Ty. ---------- Reviewed by Janet Sue Terry, author of the contemporary romance, "Set Me Free" series. Book 1 - Possibilities and Book 2 - Resolutions.

my favorite

Out of all the calder series, I love this one the best. Jessy is the woman all of us would love to be....feminine, tough, ladylike, loyal, beautiful in the way the land needed, not just "prissy". Ty needs someone to stand with him, not to be a "trophy". The loss of Maggie is so difficult; Chase just isn't the same without her; I love seeing Cat grow up and the changes in all the characters. I have even learned to like Culley. The love he has for Maggie and Cat is wonderful and touching. I have been through 2 copies already and will choose this one when i want a real look at the calder's. What a wonderful way to escape.....

Janet Dailey Fan

I really enjoyed Calder Born, Calder Bred as a single book and as a generational series. Ty pretty much turned outlike to his father, Cal. For a series, Janet Dailey did a fantastic job. I have enjoyed all of her books in this series, as a series and as individual books.The research and knowledge she puts in her books about ranching is fantastic. I come from a farming community, as a young girl, and their were lots of ranches around us. She hit the nail on the head with the way the family career in ranching is done, or at least to the way it was done back then.

Another good book

As usual, this story about the Calder family was intriguing. My only disappointment is the casual view of the infidelity of Ty. I had expected more from a family so respectable in other ways.

Running a ranch gets very complicated--and you get hooked!

Returning to the ranch at 15, young Ty has a lot to learn and Jessy O'Rourke has the 'know how' to teach him as she knows all about ranching-- doing all the work a man does. He hardly notices her. He goes off the college and falls for a spoiled rich girl, Tara. They marry but she never really likes living on the ranch. Tara's wealthy father plots to get the Calder ranch and turn it into strip-mining. Chase is against this and he and Maggie fly out of town on business and the plane crashes killing Maggie. Chase is hospitalized and heartbroken at Maggie's death. Ty takes over the ranch and will, due to being blinded by his wife's beauty, have financial problems due to Tara's extravagamces. Ranch life gets very complicated as you will read in this 'very very good' saga!
