Exciting, discouraging, depressing, joyful, understanding, wishful, - so much going on with never a dull moment.
Each about women and the struggles they have had and how they have overcome them. Each is mainly about 1 particular but also tells of other females. Worth reading
And I just purchased #4 to continue this series.
The first book in the series is 'The River Girl's Song' and tells the story of Zilla Bright and how she fights to keep the family farm, raise her infant baby brother and find happiness with Wylder Eckhart.
The second book is about Wyler's sister Sonnie Eckhart and her journey to become a school teacher to in a group of illegal Native Americans living in North Texas off the reservation. She faces many dangers and find her happiness with Lone Warrior, a strong Kiowa warrior that saves her and finds his way back to God in 'The Comanche Girl's Prayer'.
The final book of the trilogy is 'The Saloon Girl's Journey', the story of Darla and how she leaves her former life and finds her way to safety and happiness at Ma Down's house doing good works in Dallas along with Ethan Downs. It is full of adventure, humor and interesting characters she meets in her travels.
I enjoyed all three books, each for a different reason and look forward to the next book in the series.
The River Girl’s Song – 4
Zillia Bright’s life had become a lot harder after her father died and her mother married Jeb. But when her mother dies in childbirth, things become even worse. Jeb runs off and leaves her with an infant to take care of and a farm to manage. She would never have been able to make it without the help of neighbors, especially Wylder and Soonie. But how long can she hold on, and what will the future hold?
This was a likable story, although it turned a little flat in a few places. I found few if any mistakes, and it had a good ending. I look forward to reading Soonie’s story in the next book
The Comanche Girl’s Prayer – 5
When Soonie Eckhart’s uncle tells her of the need for a teacher in his secreted Comanche and Kiowa village, Soonie feels she must go. Things there seem strange at first, and she misses her family. A Kiowa man called Lone Warrior doesn’t help when he seems to have nothing but disdain for her, but things can change. As they face the dangers of being off the reservation in 1890, the future will hold many uncertainties and surprises.
I didn’t think I would like this novel at first, but I was wrong. It pulled me in quickly. The ending was rushed and felt incomplete, but the story was still good enough that I gave it 4.5 stars, which rounded up to a five.
The Saloon Girl’s Journey – 3
Darla North, the saloon girl from the last book in the series, goes to stay in a “home for unfortunate women,” however she is determined to not let anyone learn of her past. Ethan Downs, the proprietor’s handsome son takes an interest in her, but when she thinks he might learn of her past, she runs away with a medicine show. Ethan goes after her, determined to track her down despite all the delays and obstacles.
I found this book too disjointed and haphazard. Darla had hated her saloon days and didn’t want anyone to learn of it, so it made no sense that she would be drawn to a saloon the first chance she got. She would not have been worrying about how she curtsied in the late 1800s because no one curtsied by then, and certainly not in the West. A “leather duster jacket” seemed a strange term. A duster is a long coat and a jacket is short. Vindicating the medicine show and Dr. Ebenezer's character also seemed a stretch. All the things that kept Ethan from finding Darla reminded me of the old-time, silent movie plots, and God’s name was even taken in vain once. This book was not a favorite.
Top international reviews
The characters were very likeable, the narration style fluid and keeping the plot going nicely along. Not a cowboy versus Native Indian story with lots and lots of bloodshed, not nail-biting tension as in an adventure story perhaps, but nice and heartwarming stories of how to survive in a hard country and in hard times, and still stay in your faith.
