Overview

Addy has spent her life perfecting her skills as a trick rider with her father's Wild West show. It's the only real home she's ever known, and it was a life her father loved before he died. When she learns that "Uncle" Jason, her father's trusted manager, has run the show into the ground and has taken what little money was left, Addy decides to find the hidden valley where her father had longed to settle. All she knows is that the valley is marked by three special stones. With two of her closest confidants, she embarks on a new adventure. VERDICT Launching a new historical series, the prolific Snelling ("Home to Blessing" and "Red River of the North" series) incorporates period details and well-rounded memorable characters into a lively tale that will please her many fans and attract new ones, especially those who enjoy Lynn Austin's novels.
