Booklist Review: "Life in Texas in 1863 is difficult for everyone, especially single women, who are normally accorded little power. Hannah Dandridge uses her allotment, however, to great effect, despite having more to bear than most as she oversees her father's ranch while raising her younger siblings, Andy and Marty. Beloved inspirational author Peterson brings the Texas territory to life as Hannah becomes more courageous and takes on more responsibility once it becomes clear her father isn't returning. She navigates conflicts with the Comanche as seamlessly as those with the men in her life. When the ranch's former owner, William Barnett, comes into the picture, Hannah balances her apprehension over his return with growing feelings for him. She must also figure out what to do about Mr. Lockhart, her father's partner, and his insistence on imposing his own plans for her life. As a strong, independent woman, Hannah is a great draw for female readers as she refuses to cater to the expectations of men and looks instead to her faith and intuition for guidance.--Richard, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
