Here’s the set-up:

Katherine wouldn’t have believed it if she hadn’t found the letter…

Katherine Arthur’s mother arrives on her doorstep, dying, forcing her to relive a past she wanted to forget. When Katherine was young, the Arthur family had been affluent city dwellers until shame sent them running for the prairie, into the unknown. Taking her family, including young Katherine, to live off the land was the last thing Jeanie Arthur had wanted, but she would do her best to make a go of it. For Jeanie’s husband Frank it had been a world of opportunity. Dreaming, lazy Frank. But, it was a society of uncertainty—a domain of natural disasters, temptation, hatred, even death.

Ten-year-old Katherine had loved her mother fiercely, put her trust in her completely, but when there was no other choice, and Jeanie resorted to extreme measures on the prairie to save her family, she tore Katherine’s world apart. Now, seventeen years later, and far from the homestead, Katherine has found the truth – she has discovered the last letter. After years of anger, can Katherine find it in her heart to understand why her mother made the decisions that changed them all? Can she forgive and finally begin to heal before it’s too late?

 


 

The 5-Star Review
“This is the first book in a long time that so captured my attention that I was up reading late into the night. The characters come alive on the pages and you feel that you know each one personally. It fits into many categories: historical fiction, character study, women’s issues, intrigue, the complexity of the mother-daughter relationship. It gives insight into a way of life long past, but shows that some of the emotional issues we face today were present then, too, and that there were strong women then who forged their own futures, even when the social structures of the time made that difficult. I have always loved historical fiction, and especially such fiction set in the pioneer days of our own country. This book satisfies on so many levels. I will be eagerly awaiting another book by Kathleen Shoop!”
