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!
There were some funny, poignant and otherwise entertaining moments, but the stereotypes o f races and religions disappointed me.
I thought the narrator was over dramatic.
I'm not even sure why I bothered to finish the book!
Overall, I rate,this book three stars because the subject matter is mundane. The story is new, however. The narrators voice was hard to listen to, not sure why. Perhaps the pitch?
I loved this book when I read it, and the audio book was fun to share with my boyfriend, on a roadtrip.
