"Luecht immerses the reader into the story of the Oklahoma Dust Bowl in the 1930s so well that the despair of the characters and the ever-present dust storms and residual grit become alive. The damages to the minds and property of the people in the town evoke empathy as they live in day-to-day fear for their families. The author's familiarity with this time period and her ability to write a story of hope, despite the havoc of the weather, makes this a fantastic book." - RT Book Reviews Top Pick"Cara Luecht is a master storyteller--strong imagery and dynamic characters weave a tale of perseverance, trust, and hope that will linger in the reader's heart well after the dust settles." Jayme H Mansfield - Award-winning fictionauthor of Chasing the Butterfly
"Cara Luecht has crafted a story with color, depth, and beauty, set in what might otherwise be seen as a sepia toned history. She's brought life to the Dust Bowl Era, placing her reader smack dab in the middle of a time of great hardship and struggle. She shows us that such adversity has the power to bring out either the best or worst in humanity. Luecht has not merely written a stunning novel, she has brought us a fine work of literature."
