Lovely but tough as nails, Lael Click is the daughter of a celebrated frontiersman. Haunted by her father's former captivity with the Shawnee Indians, as well as the secret sins of her family's past, Lael comes of age in the fragile Kentucky settlement her father founded. Though she faces the loss of a childhood love, a dangerous family feud, and the affection of a Shawnee warrior, Lael draws strength from the rugged land she calls home, and from Ma Horn, a distant relative who shows her the healing ways of herbs and roots found in the hills. But the arrival of an outlander doctor threatens her view of the world, God, and herself--and the power of grace and redemption. This epic novel gives readers a glimpse into the simple yet daring lives of the pioneers who first crossed the Appalachians, all through the courageous eyes of a determined young woman. Laura Frantz's debut novel offers a feast for readers of historical fiction and romance lovers alike.

Epic shouldn't mean marathon!
3 stars By Margot, Sep 06 2013
This very long (epic=400 pages!) book started off very slowly. It is the story of Lael Click, daughter of one of the first frontiersmen to settle beyond the Appalachians. It starts when Lael is 13 years old, and although they married young in those days, I found it almost impossible to relate to the feelings for men that are attributed to such a young girl. I appreciated the way she honored her father throughout her life, and enjoyed it all much more once she was grown up, growing closer to God, and being courted by a strong Christian doctor. Laura Frantz writes very descriptively, and I enjoyed the way she gave both sides of the whiteIndian clash.
So it has good points and bad, was a bit long, but all in all an interesting novel.

Fantastic book!
5 stars By Kimberly, Apr 28 2010
I thorougly enjoyed this book, was a good length and lasted a few good nights of reading!! (one of those books that you spent every spare moment reading!) I skipped to the end to see what happened and almost cried because of what happened, but at the end i was on his side ;) It's historical and I really "got into" the old-fashioned way of life, and the native people, and it's pretty romantic too :) I advise this book to...anybody! I just really really enjoyed it, 5 star!!
