The Sacrifice by Diane Matcheck

Reviews

Matcheck makes a stunning debut in a survival story that reveals not only the dangers of the wilderness but the risks to the human heart . . . Readers will not only have a sense of place, they will be gripped by many of the same emotions. - Starred, Booklist

[A] thoroughly credible portrait of an arrogant girl's metamorphosis into a teachable, worthy woman, whom readers will believe is indeed capable of greatness. - Publishers Weekly
