The Luck of Texas McCoy is the story of a self-reliant, independent girl who discovers that, in the end, we all need each other, and that accepting help is not a sign of weakness, but part of the human condition. Texas's fierce independence is very appealing, and her struggle to carry out her grandfather's wishes and to make his ranch once again prosperous and thriving shows what determination and hard work can achieve. She also learns that lucky breaks are given to anyone who tries, and that compassion and integrity are their own rewards. Yet the most difficult lesson Texas must learn is to accept others as they are, to allow herself to trust others, and to let her defenses down.
