It's a long way from Baltimore to Oklahoma Territory. But Zora Stewart will go any distance to put the tragic events of her sixteenth summer behind her. So this city girl heads to the tiny frontier town of West Glory to help her young widowed aunt keep her homestead going. When another Baltimorean shows up in West Glory, Zora couldn't be more surprised. Theo de la Croix made the long trip out west hoping to court Zora, whom he has long admired from afar. But Zora has developed an attraction to a rather less respectable fellow: Emerson Birch, a rough-mannered young "sooner" whose fertile land is coveted. As Zora begins to suspect that there may be more than luck behind Emerson's good land, she discovers an extraordinary, astonishing power of her own: the ability to sense water under the parched earth. Ages 13+.
