In Heart of the Wilderness, young Kendra Marty goes to live with her grandfather after her parents die in a river accident. But what can a trapper living in the backwoods offer a small child? Will Kendra ever be ready to face the scary and confusing world far from the wilderness she loves? Eastern socialite Cassandra Dell Winston was willing to travel to the ends of the earth to be with her husband, Dr. Samuel Smith. But it was still a shock when Sam took her west to a rustic frontier town--the place where They Called Her Mrs. Doc. Damaris escapes her father's drunken abuse, but she can't seem to escape her profound loneliness. Does the Bible hold the answer to both that and the question of why she is A Woman Named Damaris?
-Publisher

She loves the woods of her childhood, but something else is calling to her . . . Orphaned at a young age, Kendra Marty comes into the care of her only living relative, her grandfather. A trapper who lives alone in the backwoods, George McMannus doesn't know what he can offer Kendra, but one look into her green eyes and he is certain they belong together. Papa Mac, as Kendra calls him, teaches her how to survive among the mountains and trees and rivers, but he knows his granddaughter needs an education he can't provide. What will become of Kendra when she leaves the only home she can remember to enter a scary and confusing world far from the wilderness she loves?
