KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of Montana from 1905 to the 1940's shows a deep understanding of frontier heritage as it outlines the realities of a small town's caste system. A foreigner, Rose Guinard, could not be accepted and when she eloped with Wrenn Morley, another woman's man, it created an impossible situation until tragedy brought the two women together. It is a story of mood more than incident. The characters of the two women become dominant values, but a compelling quality holds reader interest.
