Kathleen Shoop, in her debut novel, has crafted a beautifully written novel that will captivate readers. Evoking the strong emotions that are often found in mother/daughter relationships, Shoop mixes the heartwarming closeness of family with the heart-wrenching pain of betrayal to present a story that will resonate fans of exquisite literature. I look forward to seeing more work from this talented author. … I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction with a western flair.

Shoop’s characters breathe. I am blown away by the authenticity of the dialogue and setting. … a gifted writer with a bang-non sense of atmosphere, time, place and social class.
