It's a good, quick read! Billy is a big, hulk of a man with a sweet tender side no one knows about, but his mother. Vivian is a young, kind and brave girl who made a mistake, but was willing to pay the consequences of her actions. Billy and Vivian both have lessons to learn. Each have a past that was hard on them,but in the end they allow God to rule their lives, not what other's think and say. It does take longer for Billy to learn that lesson because of the harsh realities he's had to face. His mother being taken by Indians when he was 6 and returning years later as a different person who is haunted by fear take a toll on him. Others see them as the outcast and something to be feared, but in reality he is just a sweet, caring guy who loves God. He allows what others have said and they way they have treated him to keep him as an outcast from the town. It takes the courage, love and faith of Vivian to bring him to his sense, and even help his mother. I love the mother in this one. Her struggel of fear has completely controlled her life until Vivian makes her face it head on. Sometimes we need to take a step of faith and trust that God is in control. People aren't perfect and all won't accept, but knowing that they did what God wanted them to do is all that matters.
