When blind and widowed Suzanne Cullver reaches California with a group of women who have survived tragedy on the Oregon Trail, she sets her mind on doing for herself all that must be done. Though she cannot see, she rejects offers of assistance, unwittingly risking her children’s safety – and her own.
Her companions blindly falter as well, held hostage by their own pasts. As Suzanne attempts to control her life in Shasta City, Ruth defends against past errors, failing to see how she limits love. Meanwhile, Mazy’s vision seems to be permanently clouded by her late husband’s betrayal. But when a young stage-driver risks all for a Wintu Indian, his life becomes entangled with the turnaround women – and together they are changed forever as they discover that No Eye Can See all the good God has in store for those who love Him.
The second book in the Kinship and Courage series. Based on a true story.

“…the author brings her heroines alive with full complements of both endearing and frustrating qualities, keeping them on even footing with each other and leaving the reader unsure what they might do next. Kirkpatrick is convincingly insightful about the conflicting emotions these women experience during a dramatic life change, allowing them to struggle, change their minds, make mistakes and start over on different tracks….satisfies overall as entertainment, as historical fiction and as a thoughtful exploration of human character and community.” —Publishers Weekly
“….Kirkpatrick can strike to the heart with deceptively simple language that somehow goes straight to the soul…What these women face, what they endure and the truths of the spirit they discover make up what is part historical romance, part spiritual quest, part something wholly Kirkpatrick’s own.”—Salem Statesman Journal
