CHRISTY AWARD FINALIST! Aug 9, 2002
By this third book, I really got close to the Skinner family and shouted cheers with the crowd at the finale. This family oriented western touched me with its poignancy and humor.
The Skinner Family 's Biggest Challenge Aug 30, 2001
Dola and O.T. Skinner and their 4 children are in Goldfield, NV, still dreaming of raising grapes in Dinuba, CA.
One year has passed since they arrived in this gold crazed boom town. The Newcomer's Cafe has flourished especially since their motor car is lodged inside the front wall! Wall Walker is hired for new jobs and is probably the only really trusted man in town - however, he makes one big enemy while helping a woman regain her legal home. That enemy swears to do him in.
The two former feuding outlaw gangs have joined forces and made O.T. a seventh "partner" of sorts. Mexico gold lures them as soon as they can leave the voluptuous sister of Goldfield's most famous Indian, Fergus.
A serious, lifethreatening illness overtakes Dola Mae and for the first time, O.T. considers himself as greedy and as guilty as the men who lust and kill for gold. After all, he has literally run his wife into her sick bed in his quest for his dream of moving to California. Will his dream take his wife from him?
This third book in the Skinners of Goldfield series by Bly certainly contains the most action, adventure and intrigue of the three.
