About the Author:

Thomas Eidson is the author of four previous novels including the award-winning St Agnes' Stand. In 2004, Ron Howard made his novel The Last Ride into a feature film, The Missing. Thomas Eidson lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

From Booklist:

Samuel Jones, a 76-year-old Indian warrior, is dying. As his last act, he wants to make amends with Maggie Baldwin, the daughter he deserted more than 30 years ago when he left to live with the Indians. But even in 1886, New Mexico life is dangerous. Soon after Samuel arrives at the Baldwin ranch, renegade Apaches severely wound Maggie's husband and kidnap her daughter, Lily. The locals who set out after Lily are caught in an ambush and decimated, forcing Maggie and Samuel to form an alliance to pursue and reclaim Lily. Samuel, despite his age and illness, is still a formidable warrior, but he knows his magic is dwindling rapidly. He must summon all his faith to reunite his daughter's family. Similarly, Maggie must overcome her dogmatic Christian faith and her personal bitterness to forgive and understand this man who abandoned her but is now willing to die for her. An outstanding adventure tale, this second entry in an outstanding western trilogy--St. Agnes' Stand opened the set--offers a thought-provoking take on the enduring if often cliche{‚}d notion of "family values." Arguing eloquently that love can transcend time and pain and bitterness when strengthened by acceptance and faith, Eidson's epic, like Lonesome Dove, deserves a readership well beyond the boundaries of its genre. Wes Lukowsky
