Cabot weaves a powerful story of healing. Her characters are well thought out and readers will understand their frustrations. The focus on the rape early in the book may put readers off, but it improves as Priscilla heals. Readers shouldn't let this deter them from a
wonderful book by a gifted author.

When Priscilla Morton's parents were killed by bandits, she was violated. But she's determined to make a life for herself in Texas anyway. Ranch foreman Zachary Webster believes Priscilla wants a cultured Boston man, not a cowboy like himself. But when necessity ties them together, he realizes he never stood a chance with his feelings. Priscilla doesn't want anyone's pity, especially Zachary's. Can true love come out of a devastating tragedy? (REVELL, Mar., 400 pp., $14.99)
