Untrue things are rumored of May Rose, but it's true she's too pretty for her own good. Her husband has disappeared, and now she's on her own in a rough town ruled by one of the lumber companies logging the last of West Virginia's virgin forest. The year is 1899, and a woman alone has few options.
With no resources but a litter of pigs and the attachment of an untamed girl, May Rose must find a way to survive with respect. She must also save the girl who sleeps with a doll clutched tight and a knife under her pillow.

You have to read this book!
The author captures the time period and draws you in. The characters seem like people you want to help.
Oh yes. The plot seems to travel from line to line. I listen on my way to work and on my way home. I would listen at work if I weren't a teacher!
No I haven't .
I just can't wait for the next book.
