Turner continues the fictionalized story of her great-grandmother, begun in THESE IS MY WORDS. Six years have passed, and the now widowed Sarah continues to build her life, her family, and her corner of the Arizona territories. She and her grown sons struggle to keep their cattle ranch in the face of drought, development, and unscrupulous speculators. This story's strength is the rational, resilient character of Sarah. Valerie Leonard's performance is extraordinary; all the vim and vigor of the feisty Sarah comes through in her first-person telling. She creates a character you will admire and remember long after you finish her story. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
