Springsweet picks up after The Vespertine left us with Zora's heartbreak sending her into solitude, and a future none to bright. There are no bright parties or full dance cards for Zora these days, the most she finds herself leaving the house is to stop by Nathaniel's grave. On a whim Zora decides to scandalize herself at a party giving her mother the means to sent her away to an Aunt out in the West. Zora believes that this will give her a new fresh look in life away from her memories and her past in the city and onto something different. What Zora soon finds is that the homesteading is far from what is written about in books and papers and the plains if less forgiving than steel. With suitors coming to her door, and a newly found power rising up from below, Zora soon becomes a dangerous commodity in a poor struggling community.

Springsweet with delight readers with a tale of love lost and learned while at the same time taking us back into the Wild West and the struggles people faced as they tried to dig out a future in the untamed land. Saundra Mitchell really wrote a story that evokes hints of the past in readers and will keep them through the very last page.
