If you read the summary to Leigh Podgorski’s WESTERN SONG, you might be left wondering about the story because let’s admit it, there’s not much there. “Contemporary Western Love Story about a bull riding rancher and his deceased best buddy’s Thai immigrant mail order bride. As she discovers the power of freedom, he discovers he’s lost his heart.” Am I right? If you enjoy stories like this, you may be more likely to one-click but if you’re on the fence, would it tease you enough?
If you are curious enough to one-click, I have to warn you that this isn’t a story you can absorb in one sitting; in fact, you might need to read it more than once. From the sweeping, panoramic descriptions of Wyoming to the intensity of the emotions portrayed, this story instantly tugged at my heartstrings.
Weston is the quintessential strong, silent type reminiscent of many cowboy stories and why yes, he has a fearsome temper. As readers, we barely scratch the surface of Song’s strength and it is only as the story progresses do we realize the depth of what she’s willing to do to break free of the constraints laid upon her at an early age. Together, they balance each other out in a meaningful and progressive way that will leave you clutching your chest when you realize that love can grow even in the strangest of circumstances.
This is my first story by Leigh Podgorski and if this is an example of the quality of work she creates, you can definitely add my name to the list of new fans. It’s wonderful.

“Leigh Podgorsk, with writing which is clear, easy to follow, and with vivid descriptions, turned a standard book into an outstanding novel. Her prose, structure, development, fast pacing, and multi-layered plotting, I gave top marks. Furthermore, Podgorksi created a clean book without the use of sex or fluff to fill the pages; however, still contains intense emotional drama between her characters. Western Song deserves several readings and I plan to reread it again and again. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.”

Western Song is a timeless love story filled with rich unique characters played out beneath the wide Wyoming sky about a bull riding rancher and his recently deceased best buddy’s Thai immigrant mail order bride; as she discovers the true power of freedom, he discovers he’s lost his heart.
A moving, thought-provoking read…beautifully written … Highly recommend for fans of literary Western/romantic fiction…

“Western Song” grabbed me from the opening pages and didn’t let go until the very end. … this book could cross genres, not just for fans of the western romance and interracial drama…but for anyone who just likes a moving, beautifully-written, and powerful read!
