Winner of Silver Angel and Golden Heart Awards, Lauraine Snelling is the multimillion-selling author of over 50 inspiring books. As Opal begins, it's 1886 in the wild and untamed Dakotah Territory. To avoid a drifter's murderous clutches, tomboy Opal Torvald is forced to leave the ranch she loves. But when she returns-older and more lady-like-she meets Jacob, a new ranch hand from back east. Now Opal must choose between an old friendship and a new romance. Alexandra O'Karma's dramatic voice energizes the lively characters and moral underpinnings of this uplifting historical novel. Listeners will also enjoy Ruby (K1084) and Pearl (K1104), the first books in the series.
