Great book. I love when great books are author's firsts. This book reminded me a lot of a South West version of Gone with the Wind. There were a lot of the same pieces at work in this book. I am eager to read her follow ups now. Thanks for the recommendation Maggie ( )

3.5 stars. Horrible narration. I would have switched to the print book if it had been available at my library. The story itself held my interest enough that I didn't want to wait for the print book to become available. My husband heard a snippet and said, "That sounds like a robot!"

This is written as a diary of a woman in the 1880s through 1900 or so. It depicts the harshness of the historical period and the strength it took to carry on with life in the west during that time period. The parts in which the author veered toward romance fell flat for me. Some of the lines were just unbearable! ( )

This is a book I didn’t want to end…..it was just wonderful and I both laughed and cried…..it was an absolute joy to read and it blew me away! ( )

The use of journal entries is an interesting way to tell the story, however there’s some shifts in tone that don’t work as well. Overall, very fascinating characters and time period to explore. ( )

Good premise for a Historical Novel of the American West. Based on the Author’s grandmother, the characters are well drawn and the plot well thought out. No real surprises, just a solid start to a Trilogy, which I’ll likely continue reading. Ending went on just a little bit too long, but overall, very enjoyable. ( )

A storm is rolling in, and that always makes me a little sad and wistful so I got it in my head to set to paper all these things that have got us this far on our way through this heathen land.

No one can eat. We have drank our tears for food.
I am making a rag rug with scraps the Maldonados gave me from all their children’s old worn out clothes. I told them what a happy rug it would be as it carries all the children’s laughter with it
It seems as if I can only think if I write my journal, it just connects the part of my head that is busy doing things with the part that is busy thinking about everything else.
... our home is Arizona Territory. There’s too much blood spilt on that land to leave it. It costs to live there, and we’ve both paid a price.
Now he is back, and I feel like my arm or something has been missing and now is returned to me. It is a hard feeling to describe, it is like the smell after a rain, and a paper journal will not hold the feeling of it.
