New York Journal of Books – May 3, 2021
“In lively, descriptive language, Dianna Rostad has penned a heart-warming, epic story built on the premise of a search for belonging that reads as an odyssey in all that it takes to find the heart of one’s family.”

Historical Novel Review, May 2021
“Rostad maintains a high level of tension throughout as the three orphans face challenges for which city life has not prepared them.. All of this is presented vividly and with unsentimental empathy. The ranchland itself is portrayed in all its dimensions – its harshness, its cruelty, its beauty. The people, both ranch families and city orphans, carry the action and tension through their reactions to each other and the land. This novel is deeply felt and beautifully portrayed.”
