Kathryn had never been short on courage. But untamed Idaho seemed determined to defeat her.

She looked out on a wilderness so hot and dry that the nearest fresh water was 15 miles away and the only thing that thrived was an endless sea of sagebrush that made a perfect home for rattlesnakes. Yet Kathryn Jayne was determined to do more than survive. She was determined to thri

First in a series that spans numerous decades, Kathryn features a narrative that moves a bit too fast. (SPOILER ALERT!) At the start, Kathryn is a seventeen-year-old girl adjusting to a new location; by the end, she has wed her sweetheart in Scotland and has come back Stateside to have his child.

The novel opens with Kathryn arriving from Nebraska to settle in Kuna,Idaho at the age of seventeen - and from there, the pace doesn't stop. This well-plotted story is hard

This isn't a genre I normally read, but my grandma bought this book for me since it has my name - correctly spelled - on the front. It's kind of crazy how much the story of 1900s Kathryn reminds me of myself. The parallels are uncanny. It was a good book, though not my favorite.
