National Rocky Road Day

Did you know this is National Rocky Road Day. A big bowl of the yummy dessert is the perfect treat for a summer day. I have to confess that it's also one of my favorite ice creams. My family doesn't eat desserts unless it's a holiday or someone's birthday, but ice cream is my weakness. My favorite flavors are Blue Bell's vanilla, cherry vanilla and rocky road. Also, Braum's chocolate chip and their cherry, cream and pecan flavor. Yum!

What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

The War Between the States may have ended, but prejudice is still strong among the families journeying together on a wagon train headed down the Santa Fe Trail.

Julia Scott is traveling to New Mexico with her father and younger brother. Her pa fought for the North in the war where her two older brothers lost their lives. Pa is looking for a fresh start in a new place, but Julia just wants him to be happy again.

Taylor Marshall, a Southerner who fought for the Confederates, is on his way to Colorado to raise horses. He’s attracted to Julia, but her father adamantly forbids them to talk to one another.

Circumstances continually throw Julia and Taylor together, and their attraction grows. Will a forbidden romance bloom? Or will they go their separate ways when the trail splits?

  1. Vickie,
    Ice cream is my husband's absolutely favorite dessert. He'll eat any kind, any flavor, at any time. I try to stick with Weight Watchers ice cream, but it doesn't always work. :)

  2. My favorite ice cream to eat is Dairy Queen soft serve chocolate.

    1. We used to have Dairy Queen's here, but they're all gone. My dad would take us to get Root Beer Freezes (a mixed-up float).

  3. Cookie Dough ice cream is my favorite.
