Library Journal Review

The ongoing saga of the far-flung Winslow family continues in this 22d title in the popular series (e.g., The Shadow Portrait, Benthany, 1998). It is 1905, and Jeb Winslow, an adopted member of the family, travels to Montana to visit a ranch run by his relations, the Rogers family. Jeb is enthralled with their daughter Annie, who hopes to become a missionary in Africa. Jeb, meanwhile, wants to become a hunter in Africa. Both pursue their dreams, with Annie's goals taking her to New York City and onto the Titanic before she is eventually reunited with her true love, Jeb. After so many volumes of the Winslow series, Morris has his formula just right, and the mixture of family drama, romance, and spirituality is quite pleasing here. His many fans should find this book as satisfying as the first 21. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
