"This book had loads of heart. Its historical accuracy won me over and has the power to charm all ages. It can even work its magic on blokes who usually like their fiction hardboiled with a lot of spice." —Mick Halpin, Critical Mick Reviews, Dublin, Ireland "The reader is able to see the colors and gape at the awe-inspiring beauty of the Idaho landscape, inhale the clean mountain air, and gasp with fear at the unfamiliar and varied hostilities encountered in the journey. The novel feels more like a conversation with a close friend than a book full of words." —Lisa Haselton, AllBooks Reviews "Clarke's characters are well-developed and her setting is compelling. But what separates this book from others is Clarke's historical accuracy and meticulous attention to detail. The reader feels transported to another time and place." —Betsy Brannon Green, Best-Selling Mystery Author When Jenny Roberts arrives home from college in the summer of 1908, she yearns to escape her small hometown of Paris, Idaho, and accomplish something remarkable in the world. She develops a promising friendship with Will Jones, a young farmer who is new to the area and has secretly fallen in love with her. Meanwhile, her father, Gilbert, attempts to catch a legendary giant grizzly bear that has devastated the community with its haunting elusiveness and slaughter of the local sheep. In the third installment of A Family Saga in Bear Lake Valley series, Jenny finds herself in the middle of drama, adventure, and romance as she struggles to gain the power of forgiveness and the ability to face new possibilities.
