Aboard an orphan train bound for Kansas, a little red-headed girl meets a street-tough fifteen-year-old boy. Only with Noah does Ruth feel safe. When they are separated at the end of the trip, she vows to wait for him every year on Christmas Eve at the Kelly Creek train station.


Ten years later, Ruth is still waiting. Adopted by the town founder, Ruth is a Kelly now, and her father wants her to marry Sheriff Leon Harker to protect his legacy. 


When Noah stumbles out of the alley, wounded, Ruth nurses him secretly back to health in an abandoned cabin.  


Noah has never forgotten Ruth or how her childish adoration made him feel. Over the holiday season, love blossoms from their affection. Ruth's father is impressed with Noah's strength and command and offers him his empire. But Noah has spent the last ten years living a far different life from Ruth's. 


Can their love survive the revelations of Noah's outlaw past?

The secret they've kept can either bring them together or tear them apart.


Youngest sibling and only sister, Kim Luchetti returns to the Illinois family farm after her father's heart attack.

Returning means she must face everyone's questions, including those of her first love, Brian Riley, the only one who knows her secret.


Brian has always loved Kim, despite his hurt and anger over her abandoning him when he needed her the most. When she appears at his farm, surprise causes him to tumble off the barn roof and break both his wrists. Kim's guilt makes her agree to move in and help until he is healed. But Kim never wanted to be a farmer’s wife and her lack of skills leads to daily humorous disaster.

One of the most beloved and bestselling novels of spiritual adventure ever published, Ishmael has earned a passionate following among readers and critics alike. This special twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new foreword and afterword by the author, as well as an excerpt from My Ishmael.

TEACHER SEEKS PUPIL.
Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person.

It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity’s origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?
 
Praise for Ishmael

“As suspenseful, inventive, and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction you are likely to read this or any other year.”—The Austin Chronicle

“Before we’re halfway through this slim book . . . we’re in [Daniel Quinn’s] grip, we want Ishmael to teach us how to save the planet from ourselves. We want to change our lives.”—The Washington Post

“Arthur Koestler, in an essay in which he wondered whether mankind would go the way of the dinosaur, formulated what he called the Dinosaur’s Prayer: ‘Lord, a little more time!’ Ishmael does its bit to answer that prayer and may just possibly have bought us all a little more time.”—Los Angeles Times
