    A steady plot, nothing too complex. Things wrap up nicely and the characters stay in their predictable roles. The narration suited the story and, while it has Christian overtones it is not preachy. The story centers on a young woman's harrowing experience raised and caught between a native and settler's frontier. Enjoyable but not superb.
