Sky Daly graduates from high school in 1968 with a plan for her life. It involves traveling from the family ranch in Montana to California to find the one person she thinks can make her plan a reality. Upon arriving, she finds herself in the middle of the peace movement and her conservative upbringing immediately clashes with the liberal attitudes of the young protesters.
The freedoms they're fighting for is what she's resisting. After her family is torn apart by tragedy, however, she is forced to adopt to the world that's changing around her.
But as she fights to save the family ranch she finds that some things never change. The threats she faces are different than her great-grandfather faced, but they're just as deadly. She realizes, like him, she will do whatever it takes to save the ranch. Whatever it takes.
Headstrong and focused, Sky knows exactly what it will take to reach her goals. When the one she was most depending on to realize them moves away, Sky is sure she can track him down and bring him back home. When she reaches California, however, she finds more than she bargained for.
Returning home alone, she works to formulate a new plan. Tragedy strikes soon after, and Sky is forced away from the land she loves. After many misfortunes and restarts, Sky is able to come home and reclaim the ranch, and life she dreamed of.
Reading Ms. Spence's novels, it is easy to visualize the beautiful land that her stories are based on. Deep detail and obvious love of nature abound in her words and reading her novels are like watching a silent picture play before your eyes. In Liberating Sky, not only does the background shine, but so does the passion in the person of Sky Daly, a young woman with a dream of working the ranch she loves. Ms. Spence uses her own rich surroundings to paint a vivid, heartwarming picture of the West that takes you right into their world and leaves you wanting for the fresh air and open land.
