Ruth Ramseyabout this book: Life isn't good for feisty, fourteen-year-old Annie. Her mother has died, and she has had to step into her mother's role and care for her younger brother and sisters. As if life weren't hard enough, her father remarries and Annie must adjust to a new step-mother's presence in the house while dealing with her grief over her mother and the inner and outer conflicts she faces as she enters high school for the first time. Although it is difficult, she takes the first steps in the long journey back from grief and learns to find peace. A "slice of life" set in the sixties in western Oklahoma and featuring its people and locales, A FAR JOURNEY: A YOUNG GIRL'S COMING OF AGE STORY reaches beyond its setting and time period with timeless themes that appeal not only to young adults, but to the young at heart.
