Zillia Bright never dreamed she would be orphaned at 16 and left to care for her baby brother and papa's farm. With only a mule and a 100-year-old shotgun, she must fight to protect what's hers. Countless dangers lurk on the Bastrop, Texas, riverside. Zillia must rely on the help of her best friends, Soonie and Wylder, to hold her world together. With Zillia's struggles come unexpected miracles, and proof that God might just listen to the prayers of a river girl.

A fantastic story woven into the Texas countryside
The characters and their relationships are stellar. The story line is realistic and very satisfying. I just finished with a huge smile on my face, and I'm going straight to the next book!
My favorite scene was when disaster struck at a lumber mill. I had already decided in my mind what would happen, but I was totally wrong. The unexpected twist made the book that much better!
Don't mess with Texas. It'll mess you right back.
