Review:

"Barr has drawn on women's diaries from the Old West to bring detail to this unusual romance. The result is an intriguing story, sensitive and authentic-sounding, and far different from what is usually considered a Western novel."-- "The Miami Herald""This is a novel of power and vitality that will grip the reader...The author's skill in writing lively, often humorous dialogue and indeveloping strong, unique characters in a setting described with authenticity is impressive."-- "Library Journal""A sensitive novel...Barr tells an extraordinary story of two women in the Old West, not only pioneers but lovers forced to keep theirlove a secret...Barr succeeds in conveying the meaning of these brave and desperate lives."-- "Booklist""The novel...is tender and gentle in its exploration of commitment between two women, especially in days when females wereexpected to live out their narrow lives doing exhausting work and obeying their husbands."-- "St. Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch"
