A powerful novel of the American West narrates the story of a dying man's attempts to make peace with his daughter, their struggle to rescue his granddaughter from renegades and slave traders, and his lifelong search for inner peace

Blackwell North Amer
Samuel Jones is a dying man, in body and in spirit. He has lost the love of the daughter he deserted years ago, when he went to live with the Indians, and now he hopes to make peace with her. But Maggie has grown into a fine, strong Christian woman with children of her own - a woman who has no need for a repentant old heathen and his Indian beliefs.
The year is 1886, and the West has been declared officially "safe" for white settlers. This doesn't stop a band of renegade Apache from kidnapping Maggie's daughter Lily, with the intent of selling her to slave traders in Mexico. Samuel and Maggie set off, with Maggie's younger daughter, Dot, on a perilous rescue mission through the harsh, unforgiving New Mexico Territory. Together they must put the past behind them and fight for an innocent girl's life. Along the way, Maggie will learn to love her father once more, and reclaim a long-lost bond that not even death can break.
