Lois Betterton's direct and emotionally true narration fits the story of Clark and Marty, a pioneer couple raising their family on the frontier. Life is full of problems, but, supported by their faith and friends, they persevere. Betterton creates natural voices for the men, the older folks, and even the children, but as a young woman Marty's voice is jarring. She sounds much older than she's written. As Marty ages, Betterton's voice is a better fit. Conversations in frontier dialect flow naturally. Betterton captures the feeling and spirit of the people without falling prey to sentimentality.
