Coming of age on the frontier
It’s 1907 and the sun is scorching down on Mary Pearl in the Arizona Territory. Mary Pearl and her sister Esther take their minds off the heat by sneaking banned Jane Austen novels from Aunt Sarah Elliot’s lively bookshelf.
Suitor Aubrey Hanna seeks to whisk 17-year-old Mary Pearl off her feet with a hasty engagement. With the promise of high society outings and a rich estate, Aubrey’s courtship quickly creates tension among the Prine women.
As autumn approaches, Mary Pearl’s colege acceptance counters quick marriage preparations. Days of travel carry her deep into a sophisticated new world. Seeking friendship but finding foes, Mary Pearl not only learns how to write, read, and draw, but also how to act, dress, and be a woman.
“I adored stepping into to the world of the Prines through tough-as-rawhide Mary Pearl. Light Changes Everything is a novel as gritty and authentic as the women of the Arizona Territory. Nancy E. Turner brings the west and its people fully to life.” –Lisa Wingate, author of Before We Were Yours
