    This is a story about courage, perspicacity and faith in the midst of trials and danger. This is a wonderful story with a powerful message about having faith and believing that everything is going to turn out for the best, even when everything looks bleak.  God truly works in mysterious ways.


    This book is about a topic that is familiar in our world today. It is not uncommon for wildfires to rage in different parts of the world. And it is devastating to the people involved because they are at risk of losing all of their livelihood and everything they worked so hard to build.


    This story showcases wildfires incinerating the drought-stricken Montana ranch land, forcing the Landers family to flee from their home. While they prepare to evacuate, fourteen-year-old Jay and his sister, Katy, devise a daring plan to rescue their herd of cattle from the fire’s grasp. But Katy falls from her horse’s back as the terrified mare gallops just ahead of the fast-approaching flames. In the ensuing life-and-death race against time, Jay must face the fire’s fury and search for his sister. Will his faith be strong enough to fortify him? This is a story about courage, perspicacity and faith in the midst of trials and danger. It is a book that will teach everyone the true meaning of having faith, and that God is always looking after us, especially when times get hard. The illustrations are also stunning in the book. They bring the story to light for the younger and older reader alike.


    I loved the story from beginning to end and will be recommending it to my church community.
