This captivating story takes place in the Sugar Fork Valley of the Great Smoky Mountains wilderness during 1925 and 1926. Nate Randolph and his five unique daughters wrestle to survive after the death of Callie—his wife and their mother—as well as to maintain their farm, forests, family, and faith against an evil lumber company manager seeking to clear-cut their virgin woodland. 

A cast of delightful characters, including gypsy siblings, Cherokee Indians, a granny midwife, a world-famous writer, and even a flesh-and-blood haint, join our heroine, 16-year-old Abbie Randolph, in her life-and-death struggle. Abbie falls in love for the first time, helps run the farm, and mothers her independent sisters while battling to preserve her faith when senseless murders threaten to destroy her family and way of life. Will the Randolph family survive intact? Will the farm be saved? Only a miracle could make it happen. 

With the march of the industrial age, especially industrial lumbering, the roaring twenties, Prohibition, the increasing momentum for a national park, and the onslaught of a modern world, trains, and radio communication, the traditional life and ways of our Southern Highlanders were about to change forever.

    " Wanted to like this book, but by page 100 i just could not get into it, far too slow for me. I am sad cause I liked the characters, but the plot was moving way too slow. Had to move on to another book. "
