Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hannah's adventures (begun in 1997 in Under the Distant Sun) continue as she prepares to give birth to her late husband's child. At the same time, an influenza epidemic sweeps through the fort, the town, and the town of Two Moons, with snow hampering rescue efforts. Relief arrives in the form of Dr. Patrick O'Brien, whose crisis of faith draws him to Fort Bridger to work with his father. As the epidemic rages, the desperately needed medical supplies Patrick brings and his renewed sense of purpose in serving the Lord offer comfort and relief to the stricken. Since a "choose-your-own-adventure" format refers the reader back to Book 5, purchase only for collections with the series. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
