During the aftermath of the Civil War, Captain Kidd, a traveling newspaper reader, is asked to deliver a 10-year-old girl to her relatives 400 miles away.
This book was my introduction to Jiles. I enjoyed her style of writing and thought the storyline was good, but incredibly predictable. Now the narrator, Grover Gardner, was very good.
