ALMOST EDEN

Author(s): 

The first time the half-breed Baptiste Lightbody (known as Light) sees Maggie Gentry he knows that they are destined to be together. This beautiful fey woman- child, called "witch" by some, is looked upon with disdain. With her parents' blessing, Light and Maggie pledge their vows and embark on the journey west to Light's mountain.

Light has a vision of a mountain untouched by human inhabitants, a land where they can live in peace and raise a family. But the journey is not without danger, for they will face Indians, river pirates and a man who carries a secret that affects them all.

ALMOST EDEN is another excellent romance by Dorothy Garlock that tells of the brave men, women and children who bravely forged west to settle this country. But most of all it is the story of an everlasting love that transcends all time. SWEET (Oct., 331 pp., $5.99)
