Library Journal Review

In this offshoot of their "Ribbons of Steel" series, Pella and Peterson continue the story of Carolina and James Baldwin's faithful family. Jordana and Brenton BaldwinÄtwo siblings traveling with Caitlan O'Connor, a young woman Brenton lovesÄinterrupt their journey in Omaha to earn enough money to reach California. There, Jordana uncovers the deadly scheme of a corrupt banker's son, and the three flee. As they settle in California, the banker's son lurks in the background, awaiting his opportunity to strike. As the Baldwins' lives become increasingly dangerous, they place their safety in the hands of the Lord, where their faith has been all along. For series collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
