Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Classic There is not a lot of dialogue in this novel but that does not bring it down. The closeness you fell to the character of Molly is strengthened when she doesn't talk because she is all alone in the winter with her one year old baby. she struggles to survive blizzard after blizzard. This is a novel that shows great power to women and to the spirit of the pioneers of the western frontier.
