Winner of Silver Angel and Golden Heart Awards, Lauraine Snelling is the multimillion-selling author of over 50 inspiring books. As Opal begins, it’s 1886 in the wild and untamed Dakotah Territory. To avoid a drifter’s murderous clutches, tomboy Opal Torvald is forced to leave the ranch she loves. But when she returns—older and more lady-like—she meets Jacob, a new ranch hand from back east. Now Opal must choose between an old friendship and a new romance. Alexandra O’Karma’s dramatic voice energizes the lively characters and moral underpinnings of this uplifting historical novel. Listeners will also enjoy Ruby and Pearl , the first books in the series.
