It begins in 1861 & Molly's family are visited by three rebel soldiers. One is wounded & has taken a turn for the worse & the other two are seeking help for him. Unbeknownst to Molly's family these rebels were deserters. Molly at 18 is drawn to the Lieutenant Huck Finn & begs him to take her with him when he leaves. He finally agrees but when Molly wakes up the next morning she finds her "Huck" has left so she does the only thing any young girl in love would do...she sneaks out to follow him. This is where her adventure begins.
Through many towns & many states Molly pursues Huck only to come up empty handed.
This book was hard to put down because you are drawn to see what is around the next bend for Molly. It captures your attention from the beginning & reels you into the different circumstances Molly will find herself in. From becoming a whore, to the third wife of a Cheyenne chief & then finding a dead man, & ending up in prison the reader will continue to root for Molly & hope she will find a better life.
A good title for this book would have been "In Pursuit of Huck" because that's the goal she continues to pursue.
I'm looking forward to the sequel "Huck & Molly" & also intend to read the first book.
Excellent book I would recommend to any of my reading pals.
That's all I can say for now, because I'm heading back to read them both, again!
You're right Andrew, Hobiescat is not my real name, it came from a boat my wife sold a bunch of in her marine dealership.
Set in the mid-1800s, we meet Molly Lee as an eighteen-year-old living on a Virginia farm with her parents, sister, and brothers. When Huck, a young Confederate deserter, happens by their farm with his wounded comrade, Tom, her family gives them shelter and sustenance. Molly Lee quickly falls in love with Huck and makes him promise to take her with him to Missouri when he leaves. But she awakens the following day to discover that he has reneged on his promise. Hurt, angry, and having no idea where Missouri is or which direction to go, she sets out on horseback determined to find him. Thus begin the adventures of Molly Lee.
A young female in nineteenth-century rural America would have needed courage, fortitude, and firm resolve to thrive in the best of circumstances. Molly Lee possesses all of these, along with an iron will and an inherent ability to read people accurately and respond accordingly. These qualities are her saving grace as she encounters robbers, rapists, and murderers in her search for Huck. Deterred time and again along her journey, she also meets kind and considerate people who care for her when ravaged and who help her grow in stamina and wealth.
Among these folks are Native Americans, most of whom befriend her. The author is to be applauded for his considerate portrayal of these indigenous peoples. Played out against the background of colonialism and an interspersed mention of the Civil War, Molly Lee encounters several tribes who eventually become extended family.
Andrew Joyce has penned an action-packed and enthralling tale of an eighteen-year-old farm girl’s tumultuous and potentially devastating journey to womanhood. This is a story all teenagers would benefit from reading. Aside from the few instances of outright killing, Molly Lee and her male counterparts are role models from whom today’s teens could take a few lessons. The “good” and “bad” characters are readily discernable, and the qualities of the “good” ones – e.g., compassion, kindness, moral rectitude – are to be emulated.
Although I haven’t read the author’s first novel in this series – Redemption: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer -- I expect that it’s as engrossing as Molly Lee. And the third book – Huck and Molly – which is in progress, should prove equally captivating.

This title is a sort of side sequel to Andrew Joyce's hit Redemption which followed the extended adventures of Huckleberry Finn.Read more
I might have written it a bit differently, but then, I'm a woman I have always been suspicious of a man writing as a woman in the first person.Read more
