This novel reaches across America with a fascinating and complex main character. Highly recommended! The novel includes: Mormonism, racism, a birth defect, sheep, brave men, heart break, breaking from traditions, betrayal, hardships, hard work, talent, loyalty, and more. This is a tale of the west that is complex, unusual, haunting, riveting, and just plain excellent. This epic deserves an A+++++++++++

Tributary is a book for those who want to learn how to see.

Barbara Richardson has masterfully blended extremes between the humble and ordinary lives of poor Utah settlers during the early formation of the Mormon Church and complex literary poetry.

She has used her craft to introduce an untold historical viewpoint that had no place in common history books, but nonetheless delivers that voice today. Clair Martin rises to find a family she never knew by a lifetime journey following her roots and, in the end, finding what real family truly means. Her story illustrates that some wealth and riches transcend social hierarchy and money.

Barbara's superb command of poetry helps one see history through another vantage point, while treating the reader to a rich tapestry of beauty beyond social constraints and materialism.

My tears, fears and cheers alternately kept me on the edge of my seat. I was a participant from the beginning as a cheerleader for Clair. I
found the italicized portions poetic and insightful. Having been a Mormon
for about a year in high school, I had empathy for Clair's plight. I found
the Elders warm and friendly while they were proselytizing me to join.
After I joined, they became cold, distant, and judgmental. This is
particularly relevant now with the recent shooting of the Middle Eastern
school girl which has spawned movement promoting women's rights and
protection from all the things Barbara Richardson mentions in the novel.

It is an amazing book. Barbara is a brilliant honest writer ... especially when she speaks of tender issues, like the affairs of the Mormon Church. I applaud and admire everything she writes.

good book
Claire Martin is an American hero. She's not a politician or a cowboy or a military leader. Instead, she is a woman in the frontier days of Utah and Idaho who does whatever it takes to carve out a life for herself. Born with a birthmark that covers half her face, she never feels accepted in any social situation.

Claire's life starts with her as an orphan; handed from one Mormon family to the next as people needed someone to work for them. Work is something Claire is familiar with and wherever she goes she gives a full days's work. She finally finds solace when working for Ada, another strong Mormon woman. Claire believes she has found a home, but when the son of a local church leader starts making advances to her, she realises that her only option is to leave and start over.

She chooses New Orleans, where she believes her mother came from before she left her as a small child. The only work she can find is as a laundress in a hospital, a job not many people are ready to take on. Claire works there, not caring that this is the African-American hospital, and that the patients there are considered not really worth saving. While there, she becomes attached to a young boy, Tierre, and soon considers him her son. When Ada's son writes Claire and asks her if she will come and help him start a sheep ranch, she leaves, taking Tierre with her.

Sheep farming is no easier than the other hard jobs Claire has worked at. With hard work and persistence, she and Stephen and another farm hand make the ranch a going concern. Things seem to be working out until Stephen gets religion and decides that he and Claire must marry. Claire is determined to never be owned by any man and it causes another life crisis.

Barbara Richardson has written a historical novel that details a life that is seldom thought worth mentioning but which created this country. It is the life of one of the millions of hard-working women and men who carved out a living from persistence and labor; from simply refusing to give up. Claire is a character readers will long remember; her pluck and fortitude make her the prime example of 'bloom where you are planted.' This novel is recommended for readers of historical fiction and those interested in how the West was won.
