Publisher's Summary

A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon - from child to determined young adult to loving mother - she shares the turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that molded her, and recalls the enduring love with cavalry officer Captain Jack Elliot that gave her strength and purpose.

Rich in authentic everyday details and alive with truly unforgettable characters, These Is My Words brilliantly brings a vanished world to breathtaking life again.

    This was a well written book. It was traumatic but real and you laugh and cry. It is a good historical fiction.

    "Amazing Epic Pioneering Woman Story"

    The kind of book that you miss for days after its concluded. Such adventure and celebration of the good things in life despite circumstances.

    Story
    "Worst Narration I've Encountered in a Long Time"
    Would you try another book from Nancy E. Turner and/or Amy Rubinate?

    I will definitely read another book by Nancy E. Turner. I will never purchase another book narrated by Amy Rubinate.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's voice was quite slow, with a strong nasal sound, combined with a somewhat forced accent at times. It was very distracting from the story, and made it quite difficult to get through the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I will never purchase another book with this narrator.

    "Outstanding historical novel"

    I cannot wait to see the movie production of this book. Unfortunately, movies are never as good as the books.

    Story
    "A story of the Wild West"

    This was a great historical fiction novel about The struggles of life in the 1800s as people moved to the Western part of the United States in a wagon-train. Sarah and her family moved to set up their home. She lived a life full of struggles and hardships. It was a realistic depiction of how life could have been in the wild west. Sarah's journal tells about the wonderful loving relationship between herself and Capt. Jack Elliott. Sarah had many ups and downs and throughout all of her trials and tribulations she manages to come through it all to the other side still determined and willing to live another day.

    Story
    "Narration was difficult at first."

    Narration wasn't my favorite at first but I was able to get used to the narration to enjoy the book.
    Loved the writing and the story was great! A bit slow at times, but by the end it felt like that was needed to get to know the characters of the book.

    "One of my all-the me favorite books!"

    Narrator's speaking is a little slow for my taste, but she performs the parts very well . The story of this strong woman is one that will stay with you for a long time. It is well-written and moves along at the perfect pace.
