Reviews

"Older, tougher, wiser, Sarah enchants with her plainspoken energy and honesty. The title may suggest a gentle tale of domestic comfort, but the book is as straightforward, gritty and persistent as the woman who inspires it and as memorable as the landscape where she carves out her life." --Publishers Weekly

"Robust, authentic, and exciting as its predecessor . . . a vividly conjured picture of her place and time." --Booklist

"Authentic in its detail, the novel's pace and intriguing cast of characters are reminiscent of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove. A sensitive, vibrant story about the strength of love and family told in the voice of a woman who must be reckoned with." --Denver Post

"If you want a picture of what life was like back then, look no further. Authentic in feel, [this] is convincing historic fiction. The armchair traveler is in for an exciting trip." --The New Mexican

"Hard times, danger, love, well-defined characters and a strong sense of place all merge to form the heart of this realistic novel." --Dallas Morning News

"All the enduring elements of the mystery that is life on earth can be found between the pages of this book. It is a perfectly authentic story, beautifully executed by its author." --Michael Blake, author of Dances with Wolves and The Holy Road

"Gritty Sarah Elliot, who lassoed our hearts in These Is My Words, proves that women as well as men tamed the West." --Sandra Dallas, author of The Diary of Mattie Spenser

"Sarah Prine is the real article . . . the kind of woman that any real man will cherish, if he's lucky enough to find her, and smart enough to know it." --Don Coldsmith, author of the Spanish Bit Saga

"Action-packed. . . . We'd trust [Sarah's] judgment if a wildfire were running straight at us. We're in good hands, calloused and strong. Turner has lived in Sarah's landscape and writes with a sharp eye for the fine points of the times." --Tucson Guide Quarterly
