I loved this series, These is my Words, Sarah's Quilt, and now The Star Garden. It could have been a stand alone book, but it finished the series off nicely, and tied up all the loose ends. Sometimes a book ends well before it should, and I felt that way with both the earlier books, but by the time I finished this one, I knew it was over. I surely devoured these books, I just couldn't put them down, one tradgedy after another, but love and family too. I doubt I would have been as brave and wonderful as Sarah if I were in her circumstances, she was quite a woman, and I loved that her "story" actually started out as the authors Great Grandmothers story, handed down through the family, Quite a lady, you won't be disappointed to get to know her.

If its by Nancy Turner, fans KNOW it will be good, ad if part of a series, know you'll relish it better, but be sure to start with the first book of the series: 'These is my words' then the second:

If it is by Nancy Turner, you know it will be good. If it is part of a series, it will be even better. But to really relish this one, you must have read the first two, and in order written to get the full impact of all the action and decisions which make it a real page turner. The last book of an endearing series is sad, though. We want more! There is at least some hope for devoted fans: Nancy has left a few unfinished leads, we can at least hope she will reconsider and write a fourth book in the series.

I adore the Sarah Agnes Prine books. In my previous review, I mentioned it took me quite awhile to finally pick up These Is My Words, but once I did, I was unable to put it down until I had reached the last page.

Nancy E. Turner's followup books to These Is My Words do not disappoint. She is able to write a solid, gripping story, balancing with humor, tragedy, and triumphs as Sarah guides her family through life in the AZ territories.

To anyone interested - start with the first book, but you'll soon find yourself reading the next two. It's not any sort of boring historical accounts as I'd originally feared, but truly well written narratives.

I was excited to read this book, as I read the first one in the series. In the first part of the book, it felt as if the author took a nap. Each time an event was about to occur, the drama landed flat, like opening up a candy bar and finding it wasn't what you expected, lacking flavor you were hoping for.
The second part was excellent, it reminded me of her first book so well written, great characters.
I hope Nancy will keep writing, when she is on target , the writing is delightful and every word has value.
I would recommend this book, if comparing to Ps them are my words, hang in there you will be delighted.

This is the 3rd in the continuing saga of Sarah Prine's life in the Arizona territories in the late 1880s and early 1900s. I am sad to see the end of this series. Sarah Prine is a strong frontier woman, who personifies all the women who helped settle this great country of ours. She persevered through the loss of parents, husbands, children and siblings. She fought Indians, Mexicans, the weather and the railroad to hang onto the land she owned and raised her children on. This at a time when women were considered the property of their husbands and couldn't legally own anything. When I grow up I want to be Sarah Prine!

"These is my words" by Nancy E. Turner. Has been one of my favorite books. After buying her second novel "Sarah's Quilt" I left it on my bookshelf for two yrs. I suppose I just wanted Sarah's life to remain the same.

Well, the second was just as good and I recently finished the "The Star Garden" and they will always be on my must read list for all my friends and family.

What makes the Sarah Prine series so interesting to me is the author based her books on an old journal of her Great-Grandmother's

After reading this series I have a new respect for the strong pioneer women who helped settle this country.

I cannot get enough of the Sarah Prine books and was sad for them to come to an end. One can't help but admire her strength, tenacity, honesty and grace during the good times and the bad. Sarah endured so many hardships and her humility makes her a character you'll never forget. If you haven't read "These Is My Words", start there and be pulled into the series. You'll no doubt end up reading all 3. Truly wonderful books full of human emotion. I highly recommend them al!

I absolutey loved the entire "These is My Words" series including "Sarah's Quilt" and "The Star Garden". I like the second and third books as much as the first. Once you start reading, you want to move in and live with her. If you like period pieces and the old west, you will be an avid fan! Sarah is a strong woman and faces many challenges and never quits. She is creative and tough and must deal with life like a man but is very much a woman. Great read for a book club!

I enjoyed this book as much as These Is My Words and Sarah's Quilt, more of Sarah's story and how she coped and survived. The new love in her life in this book is natural and a comfort to her. I didn't understand why she didn['t marry him, but it was probably simpler not to marry.
This book along with the other 2 shows a determined woman, forced to survive in her wits and good sense, and a tender-hearted mother and grandmother. Loved the whole trilogy.

Another Sarah Prine adventure in the wild west. Love her spirit and her family. Hardship and endurance prove to be her recreation and solving and resolving calamities are her field of expertise. I love reading every page because I know that no matter what, Sarah will pull through and make more friends of all us readers and her western neigbors. Can't think of any character that I care more about knowing. Funny and endearing but such an inspiration as a woman.
