Rebecca's Crossing Book Blurb:
“I can take care of myself!” Rebecca snapped, slamming the derringer onto the shelf beneath the counter top.
At nineteen, Rebecca Cunard, youngest child of Pastor Eli and Fay Cunard, is a feisty and fiercely independent young woman, more at home in her prospector’s garb than the lacy dresses she wears to work each day at Joe Master’s mercantile store.
One fateful day, her rash words force her to flee from home under the cover of darkness. Under the watchful eye and protection of Hobie Masters, her faithful childhood friend, Rebecca sets out on a journey that will take her from Placerville, California—almost three thousand miles—to Independence, Missouri, and the safety of Serenity Inn and her brother Caleb.
As she leaves, Fay Cunard reminds her daughter that “as strong as you think you may be, you need to let others help you. Your biggest flaw is thinking you don’t need help from others. But you do, especially from God.”
