Publisher's Summary

One of Amazon’s Number-One Best Sellers of 2018 

Jessica Pratt is only 10 when her world is destroyed. After witnessing unspeakable acts of violence, she flees for her life, becoming lost in the untamed California wilderness. Terrified and alone, she fights for survival as each step takes her further away from everything she has ever known. 

For nearly a decade Jessica calls the mountain home until tragedy strikes once again. Forced to reenter a world that is controlled by men, Jessica transforms into Jesse for her own protection. Posing as a man, she ventures off the mountain for the first time in years and soon finds herself at the mercy of emotions beyond her control when she attracts the attention of a local singer. 

Will Jesse be able to maintain the ruse she has created, or will she let down her guard and confess her true identity to an unlikely new love? And, what happens when she comes face to face with the demons from her past? Will she get the justice she desires?

Heart Wrenching Novel

I love lesbian period pieces so was excited when I found this book. I almost wish I would have waited to read the book. I don't say that due to it being a bad book the storyline was fantastic, I say that as there is very little happiness in this book. I cried so much reading the horrible things in this book and was really taken by the amount of violence written by this author. Being a woman I am se sensitive to rape scenes as I am sure many others are. I understand why the scenes called for the violence I just wish there was not so much detail with the rape portions. The premise of this book was a good one but this book could do with a lot more happiness. I felt at the end of the book the writer had had enough and just finished it as quickly as possible. Although the ending was sweet give us a few chapters of pure happiness to help relieve all of the sadness. I could not stop reading this book as I had to find laughter and happiness somewhere but if there was a scene with happiness it just a sentence or two. Meanwhile the details of what happened when she was 10 were not told once but two times, i actually skipped it the second time due to the incredible sadness. I don't understand why it was so important to the writer to have such horrible things done to women in this book. This is a work of fiction and it did not have to be so graphic, I could understand if it a true story and those were actual details but it was not. I wish I had some great way to discuss how amazing this book was but I am having a hard time but here goes: I am an avid reader of lesbian novels and as far as the storyline goes this book had it all, there is no doubt that the author is an experienced writer. The narrator was good as well with the different characters in the book so that is another thumbs up! The ONLY reason I only gave 3 stars was due to the graphic nature of the awful scenes in the book. It was simply to much for me to handle but I am just one person. If you are not sensitive to violence than you MUST get this book, but if you are sensitive to such scene than I would still get the book and forward past thise scenes.
Hope this review helps others if they decide if they want to read this book or not. I could not be anymore honest, I cried a lot while reading this book due to it's sadness but it is possible menopause made it worse..lol

Beautiful story

Wow. I’m not sure what I expected but this book took me much further than I thought it would. The first chapters were difficult to listen to, as the beginning of the story is very violent and painful but it has to be for Jesse to become who she is. Nothing is gratuitous. I’m glad I kept going. Also, the narrator’s voices for the various characters were really great.

Nonstop Angst

Seriously, two hours in and every family has been ripped asunder, with rape, shootings, burnings, and a child dying under the wheels of a wagon. Don't see much point in continuing to listen.

Wow!

Wow! I really loved this book!

As much as I cringed with the assault on the family, near the beginning, and wish it had less detail, it could have been a lot worse. And unlike certain authors, it wasn’t done for entertainment value.

The developing relationship between the two main characters, and how they resolve their “I’ve never considered being attracted to a woman before,” both in different ways, was realistic.

The mother-figure/child relationship with Frieda and Jessica was neat to read about, as well.

Equally as good as the the book!

Let me start by saying I loved the narration of this book by Jennifer Nicole Stang. I felt she brought each individual characters to life. Because of this, i was able to easily listen and get lost into the story. It never once felt like I was being read to...
Now as for the story itself, I’ve read all 3 books in this trilogy. Having these same characters come to life in audiobook was just as good. Each characters was depicted just as I imagined from when I read the books. Now I don’t want to give anything away from this book, but I will put a disclaimer... There our some ruff scenes (rape,murder) in the beginning of this book. I believe it was necessary for this story and it’s understanding of why the main characters became who she is. But for some it may trigger. Please don’t let that deter you from listening to this book!
For those of you who’ve read the books, you won’t be disappointed. 5⭐️ I definitely recommend giving this one a listen.

Engaging Read

The beginning is tough to get through because of violence, but the story is well written, and the narrator does a great job. This is probably the fastest I’ve finished an audiobook.

OMG

This book is outstanding. The characters, storyline are fantastic. The narrator is brilliant at doing all the voices and I was truly engrossed from start to finish. This is definitely in my top five of this year and if you don't get this book you are seriously missing out.
