Arizona Territory, summer, 1907. Mary Pearl Prine and her sister Esther take their minds off the heat by sneaking banned Jane Austen novels from Aunt Sarah Elliot's bookshelf. Whispered read-alouds and reveries of getting hitched to their own Mr. Darcy swirl through their day dreams. In walks Aubrey Hanna, who whisks Mary Pearl off her feet with a forbidden kiss and hasty engagement. The lustful courtship quickly creates petty tension among the three generations of Prine women. When Mary Pearl's Wheaton College acceptance counters the marriage preparations, she not only learns how to write, read, and draw, but also how to act, dress, and be a woman--Adapted from jacket.

A New & Noteworthy pick. The Prine family, from “These Is My Words,” is back. Mary Pearl Prine owns a pistol and rides a horse, just like any feisty young woman growing up in the Arizona Territory should. A great story of frontier life.
