This was a book club choice and everyone loved it! Such an entertaining adventure with sadness, friendship, love and personal growth for the women. This book will make you laugh and cry! Don't miss it.
I read this book awhile back and throughly enjoyed it, but listening to it brought the story to life. It has a wonderful array of characters, and I would really like to see a movie made about it. Thanks for writing such an entertaining and enlightening book about how the American Indians lived, and how different it was from how many of our ancestors lived. This is probably a book I will listen to, or read again in the future. There were times when I laughed so hard, and other times I wanted to cry for the character! It was a book that made you want to come back to it to find out what was happening next! Thank you!
A unique and interesting historical novel. The characters and the premise are beautiful developed. Everyone I recommend this book to enjoys it.
This book really captivated me from the first chapter. I was surprised to learn about this event occurring in our history. How brave those ladies were to venture off to marry into a culture they did not understand. It also made me sad to read of the deceit of the Indians. So much was taken from them. It breaks my heart that so much of the culture was uttered by some peoples selfish desires. This book was great and I recommend it to all those who enjoy historical fiction/non fiction.
This book is excellent! Though we know from the start that all the characters are long dead, the writer is able to bring them back to life though fictional journals of May Dodd. The journal entries are so descriptive and compelling, and many of the scenarios so close to actual historic events, that I had to keep reminding myself that this was a work of fiction. Great story!
