Past that I really couldn't wait for it to be over.
The first quarter of the book was sooooo repetitive, I mean, how many times do you need to describe them putting their ears to the ground, him observing her hair, then them hearing someone calling for help, then how they dig through the rubble to save people. at one point I thought I had skipped back in the book because it seemed I had already read this particular rescue.... Also all through the book she was constantly mentioning that Adobe houses aren't good in earthquake territory and constantly reminding us that 27 people died and some we're children!
2. Unbelievable characters
So these two are both so immature, they wander from town to town like teenagers on some Grand adventure avoiding reality thinking they need to be the ones to do everything and check on everyone making completely illogical choices like no one in their right mind would go all the way back to his cabin to "wash up" when they could just go where everyone else was going where they should have been going too. Also they lied about everything for no reason at all I get the lying about themselves in their correspondence ok that happened) but why did she say she had delivered babies before? Why did they let everyone assume they were married it was just so dumb and there were no consequences in the end for all their lies. Also I feel like he wasn't a believe character I think he was supposed to be kind of many and in charge to of guy, but then he would say let's do this then turn to her and say, well if you think it's a good idea.... He was consantly deferring to her judgement, I think the author was trying to show them working well together but in the end it made him seen indecisive. I just feel like it was a very male dominated society back then and it just didn't make sense with the character/setting.
Overall the plot just was lacking I thought it would get better once they finally got back to town..... Which didn't happen till the end which as I said in the beginning was a cute ending.
Seth was waiting for his mail order bride along with couple other townfolks at Lone Pine. The brides were just getting off when an earthquake struck the area. While most of the buildings in Lone Pine survived, the neighbor town Middle Pine did not fare as well as their houses are built of adobe bricks. One of the brides, Hannah, took charge and asked for Seth's help, and Seth went along, but Seth was actually waiting for a different girl, younger, not this hard-charging adventurous girl. She said she came to marry Seth... but the older more respectable Seth... the OTHER Seth in town. But as they spent the day few days together, digging people out of collapsed buildings, helping people cope with aftershocks, they started to behave like a married couple, even though they were not promised to each other...
There's a bit of deus ex machina / gift of the magi twist at the end. Aside from some possibly anachronistic details, like having extra bits of steel around, enough to make a bathchair (wheelchair) and even the milking stand is made of steel (really?!) used to prop up a door before the house collapsed. But overall, it's definitely better than the typical mail order bride stories.
Thanks for a great story. The way they learned about love and she learned about Jesus was great.
