Kept me interested but not memorable.
Review by Sarah L: Having always enjoyed stories about historical America, especially the untamed West, I couldn't wait to start reading. Initially the story started out slow and I had a hard time staying interested. After the first few chapters the tempo did pick up although I never really felt the zing I was hoping for. It had a great plot idea but I didn't feel any sort of connection with Zander or Dorie.
Without trying to give away too much of the story, Dorie does eventually learn what a country wife was. In my opinion, this was a missed opportunity to incorporate some fireworks. Where was the yelling and screaming? It felt like an afterthought. The whole situation was glossed over. I was also confused as to why the two "bad guys" in the story were constantly being hired as guides. I realize times were different back then but I would like to think they had some common sense. The ending was also a bit too tidy. Fireworks!! Where are the fireworks?
Overall, the story did keep me interested enough to finish it and I was content with the ending but unfortunately it didn't leave a lasting impression.
