It is the story of Hunter Bell, a Presbyterian minister turned gambler, and the founder of a gold camp named Bethel. (Which you may remember was Esther's hometown in The Locket.) He is running from the bitter memories of his past, his ministry, and ultimately, from his God.
Venturing into a blizzard to chase away wolves drawn close to his cabin by hunger, Hunter finds a beautiful young woman in the snow, wounded by the wolves and half dead with the cold. Her name is Quaye McGandley, and she is an Irish woman sold into marital slavery to a brutal husband who then brought her to America against her will. As Hunter nurses her back to health, he finds that his tender ministrations to Quaye have opened his heart to his greatest fear - that he might love again.
It is my hope that you, and those with whom you share my audiobook, might through its message better see the divinity within yourself and the reality of who you are worthy of love, gentleness, and grace.

SO DEPRESSION RICHARD PAUL EVANS
Would you try another book from Richard Paul Evans and/or Barrett Whitener?
I love Richard Paul Evan's books, but this book was so depression I had to stop listening to it. I got several chpt in, but couldn't stomach the pain anymore. It's about the old west, but good gawd Richard, that was horrible. Never would I dream I would say that about one of his books.
What was most disappointing about Richard Paul Evans’s story?
What does Barrett Whitener bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He was good.
What character would you cut from The Looking Glass?
The whole damn book!
Any additional comments?
Just an extremely depressing story. I kept thinking it would get to something good hearted like Richard always does, but I could hang in there.
