This saga brought even more action, drama, mystery, and romance than the first two (a difficult feat), though comparatively it started off a bit slow for me. I wondered why, then I realized it was because of the same smarmy couple, Miles and Alicia Peabody, herding *another* group of unsuspecting females to the West (Book 2, Cheyenne Sunrise, introduces us to their wily and avaricious ways). The deja vu moment passed quickly though, as Elsa, the Hessian hurdy gurdy girl featured in this tale, just as quickly became a compelling focus, sympathetic figure, and, ultimately, heroine.
Con Walsh - who freakishly lost his memory while away from his family - meets up with Elsa on his journey back to discovering who he is and where he came from. He sympathetically hones in on Elsa's plight and makes it his business to assist her in attaining her freedom. Along the way, compassion sparks a protective stance, which shifts to interest, which ignites to love.
Janalyn's scenes transition swiftly, serving either to move the action and story along or to explicate it. There are quite a few story lines to follow, but if you're paying attention, you'll begin to see how they relate before the denouement. And if you're like me, you will anticipate them and surmise their outcome (most of the time, successfully!). :D
Though romance figures robustly in Stagecoach to Liberty, these are the things I have come to count on and love in Janalyn's stories: rich, descriptive detail (physical, geographical, historical, meteorological even!); sympathetic characters; credible story arcs; lucid and natural dialogue; crisp similes and metaphors; and, most importantly, edifying accounts of faith found, renewed, and strengthened.
My one regret is that the widow Maisie's heart is left to flounder. But the sneak peak at Book 4 gives me hope! :)
The characters were appealing. I could understand the motivation that drove Elsa to indenture herself to virtual strangers to travel to another country without her family. It was great to watch her transform from meekness to having courage to stand up for herself.
Though the book stands alone, it is best read after the others in the series to give a more complete understanding of some of the characters and their circumstances.
I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.
A good clean western romance that I think would make a great movie some day,
