    Hawker has a powerful book of friendships that come out of necessity and the hardships of living in a remote area of the country This novel had than one interesting theme carrying the reader on the winds that rushed through these pages female friendship, loneliness, parenting, and even a bit of other worldliness Highly recommend to readers of Sharon McCrumb s books set in Appalachia and Western women s fiction.

    When I pick up a book written by Olivia Hawker, I know I m going to be experiencing something special The sense of harsh reality and intrigue begin on page one of this unusual novel, and they never let up Through the eyes of two strong women thrust together due to circumstances, we experience what life must have been like in the almost barren landscape of frontier era Wyoming.Hawker has a wonderful way with words, and sometimes I feel as if I m reading poetry She s also able to develop characters with entirely different voices who come alive on the page There are no typical or stereotypical characters here, and the plot is not predictable I never saw many things coming Most fascinating is how she slowly but surely develops relationships that will pass the test of time, despite it all.Great for fans of historical fiction and anyone who simply loves a beautiful story Thanks to NetGalley for the advanced reader s copy.
