Overview

Picking up where the fourth book in the Fort Bridger series leaves off, Jack Bower and Julianna LeCroix are making their way back to Fort Bridger to announce their engagement when they run across Matt and Emily McDermott and their daughter, Holly, stranded along the road. Jack and Julianna help the family travel safely to Fort Bridger, only for tragedy to strike when Holly dies of pneumonia.

Emilly refuses to believe that Holly is dead. She heads out one day to find Holly and mistakes Patty Ruth, another child in the town, for her dead daughter. Matt's heart is torn between his wife and the guilt of keeping Patty Ruth, but through God's love, the broken Fort Bridger families will slowly start to heal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this continuation of the Lacys' series set in the Old West (Faithful Heart, LJ 4/1/96) Deputy Marshall Jack Bower runs across the McDermott family stranded on the outskirts of Fort Bridger, WY, and escorts the trio into the safety provided by the town. Matt and Emily McDermott had traveled west hoping for a better life for themselves and their daughter, Holly. Unfortunately, their dreams soon shatter when Holly dies and Emily loses her grip on reality. Becoming convinced that the daughter of the town's general store is actually her dead child, Emily kidnaps the little girl. Unfortunately, this possibly intriguing situation is undermined by choppy writing and an overly didactic religious message that seriously hinders the plot. Not recommended.
