First off, I have read many of Wanda E. Brunstetters books. I love her may Amish stories and enjoyed reading her writing with a different genre. This one I think is one of her better. From the beginning I was hooked. There were so many twists and turns. Although sometimes the tragedies and events seemed a little excessive, I do think the west was that harsh. You were never without danger of wild animals, Indian hostility, and lawless men. It was a rough place for a woman.
Anyone who is a fan of Wanda E. Brunstetter books or fictional wild-west books will love this book. It has a great message and story all wrapped up.
1) I was given a copy of this book for free to read and review. The opinions above are my own. I was not compensated for a positive review.
2) I may have made up the word harshities but I like it. So I used it.
