This story of a family of Homesteaders in the Texas Panhandle section is as rich in history as it is in romance. Told from the point of view of ""almost fifteen"" Carolyn, the fabric of the Pierce family life is exposed:- her sister Katie, accomplished and elegant, yet hopelessly in love with a young Texas farmer who cannot bring himself to force her into the arduous life of a farm wife; the bountiful understanding of Mother Pierce; and the first glimmer of adult responsibility in Carolyn. How Carolyn contrives to reunite Katie with her sweetheart, how she befriends a destitute family and gives them status in the growing community, how she, herself, finds the promise of an early and fruitful marriage, are warmly portrayed in this rich novel by the author of The Wind Blows Free. Romantic, nostalgic and eminently refined.
