All right, I am supposed to review this book, right? Well, not really, I was given a copy after reviewing another book and I just haven’t gotten around to reading or reviewing this one. So, since I have not reviewed this book I thought I might review the book . . . blurb.
From the beginning of the blurb, “take a three-thousand mile journey” we know that the hero/heroine is going to have the usual and horrible feelings called doubt, fear, and worse of all second guessing him/her self, not a pretty picture. Then it’s followed by the “near death” experience that always leaves our lead on a trip of healing and ‘oh my! I can’t believe I almost died; I need to do something worth talking about and make use of myself’. Now that we know our lead is a female and she’s about to meet a “Indian woman” therefore she, Amanda, has the urge to show the woman that she needs to change (in some cases this is good but seeing as I disagree with the Quakers I’m not even going to go there.) but anyway, this Indian woman will be shown by our powerful and perfect character that she’s completely wrong and the woman will see that she’s right, there’s likely going to be tears, and all of that stuff.
There’s also a ” trapper who seems to be her biggest critic”, huh, who could that be? One guess, the hero, the perfect trapper man that saves the girl, and “love follows her into the wilderness” and that’s ALL we need to know so . . . There you have my reasons to read or not read this book, hope you enjoy.
And if you are one of the poor, I mean, dear readers of this book I dare you to tell me if I’m wrong. 😉
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review and I am truly truly happy to share my true and honest thoughts.
