Sinopsis:

Looking after Lily is a burden Haywood Beatty didn't bargain for. Only twenty years old himself, he's been charged with the welfare of Lily, a sixteen-year-old mother-to-be and wife of his outlaw brother. But Lily keeps coming up with what Haywood needs. A horse. A gun. Money. Common sense. And before long Haywood recognizes that he has fallen in love with his brother's wife. "Good stuff . . . an intelligent, humane story about a guy with too much energy and too little sense. It rates an A."--Entertainment Weekly.

From Booklist:

Bonner's first novel, Lily (1992), a love story set in Texas circa 1880, was a winner. It told the story of hardworking, 15-year-old Lily, who shouldered her deceased mother's responsibilities but fell wildly in love with a dashing, red-headed young outlaw called Shot. Lily won many accolades and awards and will soon be made into a movie. Bonner is riding this wave of success with a sequel, but it has none of the shortcomings associated with the form. Her prose is, once again, lustrous, specific, and resonant, and she has boldly switched points of view. As the new novel begins, Lily's husband, Marion ("Shot") Beatty, has been sentenced to two years in jail just as his one surviving brother, Haywood, is being released. Shot begs Haywood to take care of Lily, who is pregnant and has nowhere to go. Haywood is appalled. A loner with a taste for whiskey, gambling, and whoring, he wants nothing to do with a pregnant sister-in-law. But gradually, after a series of disastrous misadventures and the near-disastrous birth of his niece, Emmaline Eliza, Haywood begins to grow into his role of guardian. The trouble is, he also falls in love with Lily. As these two tough, laconic, brave, and, yes, noble individuals struggle with the conundrums of passion and the demanding work of pre-industrial daily life, Bonner does more than hold us rapt with her storytelling skills; she also reveals the transforming power of love. A third installment of Lily's saga is in the works. Donna Seaman
