Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Clear, at times lyrical prose…providing vivid, colorful characters and historically accurate backdrop.”  The Washington Post
“Taylor’s deft progression produces the intended reward: she not only tells of her heroine’s growth, but she shows it through Sarah’s writing and insights. The result is a compelling portrait of an enduring love, the rough old West and a memorable pioneer.” Publishers Weekly
“Throughout we are treated to the wonderful tale of a woman who endured and overcame.” AudioFile
“The language is rich and fine, sounding true to its time without being precious. Readers who enjoyed Sandra Dallas’ Diary of May Spenser are sure to love this one.” Booklist
“A lushly satisfying romance, period-authentic, with true-grit pioneering.” Kirkus
