Seven years after falling in love and marrying Mildred Read, the Chicago-born orphan is tired of sheep ranching for his father-in-law in desolate Oreana, Idaho and needs a change. Barely able to feed and clothe his five growing children, Bill spends their last dime on an electrician correspondence course and gets a job with Idaho Power.

    I enjoyed this sequel to The Sheep Rancher's Daughter. Once again, I loved the author's skill to use great imagery and character development. I feel as if I was there watching the story unfold and as though I know the characters personally. The book tells a tender story of love, family values and struggles. It includes highlights of living in a family divided by different religious affiliations but ultimately united by faith. I cried several times, both happy and sad tear. Great book!
