NO ESCAPE is both a tragedy and a story of courage and redemption. Mistakes made must suffer consequences. Mattie summed it up when talking to Jed, her former employee and now captain of the handcart company with whom she and her twins are hiding to escape the vengeance of her former escaped from prison husband, Benjamin Farkle. “Jed, I have done so many things wrong in my life. Do you think I can ever be forgiven? Do you think God ever thinks twice about me?” Mattie finds answers to her question as she and Jack Sisson leave the handcart company to search for Dolly, her eight-year-old twin daughter, lost in a horrific hailstorm, and presumed dead, while along the Sweetwater River in Wyoming. Ten years later Farkle, who has embraced the dark side, finds Mattie in Weaver, Wyoming. After a tragic confrontation with the evil Farkle, Butch Weaver, moans to Jack Sisson, “Can anything be worse?” After Jack’s answer Butch continues. “Hatch is dead. Your house burned to the ground. Half the family is ailing. I can’t be very cheerful.” “Houses can be rebuilt. People mend. We can’t help Hatch, but we will never forget him, either. It’s time to lick our wounds and heal.” “Words are easy, Jack.” Interspersed with humor, church history, and romance, the excitement Never ends.
