Interesting book about two women whose devotion to one another lasted many years, and caused them many problems.

Not at all "smutty" or sensationalized, just a simple love story.

Well-written and touching story of two women surviving together in the Old West. A departure from Nevada Barr's usual books. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Miami Herald
"Barr has drawn on women's diaries from the Old West to bring detail to this unusual romance. The result is an intriguing story, sensitive and authentic-sounding, and far different from what is usually considered a Western novel."

St. Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch
"The novel...is tender and gentle in its exploration of commitment between two women, especially in days when females were expected to live out their narrow lives doing exhausting work and obeying their husbands."

A must read

This is a solo book not connected to the Anna Pigeon series - very worthwile saga of pioneer days in America where everyone scratched out a living the best they could. This could be made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie if Hallmark is daring enough. Very worthwhile!

I started this one, but it's not an Anna Pigeon mystery...it really isn't even a mystery. It wasn't my taste.

This was not an Anna Pigeon book. I knew that going in and enjoyed it as much as the Pigeons.
