"The narrative element of the book is highly plausible. I could picture each chapter as it unfolded. I could imagine the horses as they ran gallantly. I could imagine Colton digging in the river, I Marianna falling sick and dying, I could imagine Lola standing up to the adults, I could imagine Kelly frying pancakes, I could picture them as they took their journeys from Windy Ridge to Flint Hills, I could imagine Nick coming home injured. The description employed in the story is highly commendable. Without being there, the reader who might relatively young did not get to see the days of horses, telegrams and letters, could find himself submerged in as ocean of such reality."
About the Author
Lee Anne Wonnacott grew up enamored with the struggle and adventure of men and women living in the 1800 U.S. At thirteen, it felt as if she had suddenly awoken to hear that space was the final frontier. Eventually, she came to realize that is was the human imagination that encased the new frontier. Lee Anne believes it was the stories of others who ignited her novelist imagination. Neighbors recited trials and tribulations on trains. Elderly relatives brought forth memories from diaries and letters. A lonely stranger in the Zurich train station revisited deep scars. It was the prodding, nitpicking, and pushing from one determined high school English teacher who showed her where to jump into storytelling. Lee Anne's secret to crafting the moving story is that if the story is not working, just kill off a character in a horribly painful death. Her passion is authoring and promoting her western adventure novels. Author of fiction titles Newton Cutter, Iron and Rawhide, Rage at Rancho del Oro, and Nick Stolter. www.leeannewonnacott.com Lee Anne Wonnacott cooks, knits, hunts for sea glass, and howls with the neighborhood dogs in Oceanside, California.
