Review: This companion book to Grasslands is set in Kansas in 1885. Tom is now seventeen and is hired as a cowhand to work on the Parson's cattle ranch. Tom is smitten with sixteen-year-old Evie, the ranch owner's daughter. Narrated in interchanging voices of Tom and Evie, it tells of the iffy romance between the two. This historical fiction has substance with women's rights, the legacy of slavery, tension between cattlemen, railroad men, and farmers, and class differences and sex roles on the Kansas prairie.
