Kuna, Idaho. When Kathryn Jayne steps off the train with her father, she stares at the endless brown dirt and sagebrush. Are even enough people living here for Dad to pastor a church?
Seventeen-year-old Kathryn compares the desolation of Idaho to her growing-up days in Nebraska. Why can't we live in a civilized place that has churches and schoolhouses for meetings? she wonders. She determines to survive, and she will. But achieving success seems as likely as climbing to the moon--and they probably wouldn't have to grub sagebrush on the moon.
Set at the turn of the 20th century, "Kathryn" captures the page-turning drama of how one woman faces the challenge of change. Through adjustments to a new community, new friendships, and romance, Kathryn learns to lean on the guiding hand of God. As she chooses with courage, you will gain fresh insight for life in the 1890s.
