After spending weeks traveling west to join the Gold Rush in California, 3-year-old Sarah McKensie witnesses her mother and father’s cold-blooded murder by the members of their newly founded homestead. Mother Nature and fate protect the little one, equipping her with extraordinary survival methods. But Sarah’s future involves additional chilling events and enemies she hardly suspects. Numerous pioneers are brought to life by Bernadette Dunne, who identifies them carefully via hard-hitting personality traits reflective of the panhandler days and the dynamic nature of the people they galvanized. Amazingly, Dunne provides lightening-fast transitions from person to person and scene to scene, providing continuity between characters and painting the colorful action. Dunne and this story are perfect together. B.J.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
