So Little TimeBook - 2002
Virginia. April 1865. Ten-year-old Rya Garrett huddles in fear in the arms of neighboring farmboy McClain Reardon when they're captured by two post-war drifters in desperate flight from their arrest. Should her believing parents have opened their home to these men in God's love? McClain takes Rya's hand, shouting, "Run!" It's a moment she hasn't forgotten - even as a grown woman traveling by wagon train toward the promise of a teaching position in frontier Sacramento. Rya meets mail-order bride Betty Hilmes enroute, then encounters a familiar fellow passenger - McClain! Will their happiness be short-lived when a Cheyenne war party attacks the settlers and Rya's spurned suitor Jason Lynch confronts the couple on the right to wed?
