Seventy-one-year-old Captain Jefferson Kidd ekes out a living in post-Civil War Texas delivering news from around the world. Ten-year-old Johanna Leonberger spent four years living with Kiowa raiders who murdered her parents. She speaks no English, and remembers nothing of her previous life. When Kidd reluctantly agrees to a friend's request to deliver her home to her white kin, the unlikely pair embarks upon a perilous journey that will test their fortitude…and change their concept of family. An elegant tale of trust and resilience, this heartwarming novel about a lost little girl and an aging, gallant former soldier will move you to happy tears.
