Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of These Is My Words comes an exhilarating follow-up to the beloved Sarah's Quilt. In the latest diary entries of pioneer woman Sarah Agnes Prine, Nancy E. Turner continues Sarah's extraordinary story as she struggles to make a home in the Arizona Territory.

Winter 1906. Nearing bankruptcy after surviving drought, storms, and the rustling of her cattle, Sarah remains a stalwart pillar to her extended family. Then a stagecoach accident puts in her path three strangers who will change her life.

In sickness and in health, neighbor Udell Hanna remains a trusted friend, pressing for Sarah to marry. When he reveals a plan to grant Sarah her dearest wish, she is overwhelmed with passion and excitement. She soon discovers, however, that there is more to a formal education than she bargained for.

Behind the scenes, Sarah's old friend, Maldonado, has struck a deal with the very men who will become linchpins of the Mexican Revolution. Maldonado plots to coerce Sarah into partnership, but when she refuses, he devises a murderous plan to gain her land for building a railroad straight to Mexico. When Sarah's son, Charlie, unexpectedly returns from town with a new bride, the plot turns into an all-out range war between the two families.

Finally putting an end to Udell's constant kindnesses, Sarah describes herself as "an iron-boned woman." She wants more than to be merely a comfortable fill-in for his dead wife. It is only through a chance encounter that she discovers his true feelings, and only then can she believe that a selfless love has at last reached out to her.

Didn't want it to end

Loved this entire series. The rich details about the land and life were very informative and gave so much to the story. Shows how important our family is to one another.

A story that has you shriveling from the desert heat and wiping tears from found love and despair of loss.

I loved this entire series as the main character, Sarah, grows from a backwards teen to a woman of keen intellect and a fierce devotion to family. Her sharp shooting skills are as useful on the wagon train as they are from her own front porch. The only thing I disliked about the series, and this book in particular, was that it ended.

Not as good as These is my words

The story is lovely - though I don't understand why they skipped book 2. I have a quilt dating from the first pioneer times, so I feel very close to the story, but oh my stars. The narrator's voice is so poor. The accent, the tone, the timbre, everything conspires to wreck the story/ I can't recommend this one. Maybe the accent etc is more acceptable in the US, but it actually hurts my ears to listen. I can't concentrate on the story because the voice just doesn't fit
