Overview

Hattie's older sister just got married, and she's already wanting to move back home because she and her new mother-in-law aren't getting along. Hattie couldn't be more upset! She's gotten used to having her own room--and now Rosalie is back, bringing all her junk with her.

What's worse, Rosalie discovers that her new husband, Lester, has been gone every night, but he won't say where. That leaves it up to Hattie and her friend Eric to find out Lester's secret. It could be dangerous, but Hattie is determined to reunite the newlyweds so that she doesn't have to share a room with her sister forever.

As Hattie and Eric scheme to help Rosalie and Lester one afternoon, a powerful storm brews, catching them off guard. When lightning suddenly strikes the forest, a fire erupts and threatens nearby homes. Hattie and Eric must rush through the blazing forest, enduring the smoke, rough terrain, and flames, to warn their friends, family, and neighbors before the fire reaches the town.

The Hattie Marshall Frontier Adventurer are inspired by tales that author Debra Smith's grandfather told about his childhood in Texas. This is the second book in the series.

Twelve-year-old Hattie learns the importance of sacrifice and friendship when she faces a raging fire near her Texas farm.
