This book is wonderfully intriguing!
Captivating from the very beginning!
You will be quickly turning the pages to see what happens next!
I LOVE the introduction:
"There's a story that's come down through the decades about a young woman who endured a horrible crisis in the wilderness of Southern Utah. It happened back in the days when folks traveled by wagon... According to legend, Ruth May Fox, an extraordinary churchwoman and longtime general Young Ladies MIA counselor and president, figured in the events... But, as I say, it's an undocumented legend, this story you're about to read..."
The story that unfolds is both heart-wrenching and heart-warming!
Ruth May Fox and Lucie Cole are traveling companions from St. George to Salt Lake City.
They are enjoying each other's company and feel safe in the presence of the church appointed guardian and the skilled carriage master.
But lurking in the dark "the wrangler paused to squint querulously at the wagon yard known for its daily dust and traffic... and he'll stop at nothing to get to Lucie Cole."
And "rescue missions may prove far more deadly than anyone could have dreamed."
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
