Author(s): 

Set in 1821, this book follows a family as they journey from New Orleans to Texas. The characters are two-dimensional and stereotypical, and the story has been told countless times before. If the reader is patient, the story comes alive in the last third of the book.

Dorritt Mott has been running the family plantation for 10 years, and when her stepfather gambles away the family fortune, they're forced to move to Texas. On their way there they hire Quinn, a half-breed Cherokee scout, to help them through the Texas frontier. The attraction between Dorritt and Quinn is instant, but can she help him believe in God and their love? (AVON INSPIRE, Feb., 320 pp., $12.95)
