Editorial Reviews

No Ordinary Moments

A few weeks ago I posted a review on The Lady’s Maid, the first book in the Prairie Dreams series by Susan Page Davis. While the first book left me hanging and a bit disappointed, Lady Anne's Quest continues the story and left me anxious for the last book in the series! I am so glad that I decided to read it!

Page develops Anne’s character much more deeply in this story and delves more into the missing uncle ~ leaving things at a much more satisfactory point for the readers by the end of the book. Now I’m looking forward to the third book scheduled to release this fall. :)

— Jolanthe Erb

Stewartry

I also enjoyed the story. The title is not a misnomer – this is a quest. Anne has a mission, to find the uncle who stands to inherit her family's estate, and the more difficulties that arise or time that goes by, the more determined she is to see it through. It's well done and enjoyable...

 

For much of the book the obstacles encountered are believable; finding one man in the barely settled West is a perfect setup for this kind of story.

 

To call a book "pleasant" is often damning with faint praise, but here, in all the best senses of the word, it fits perfectly. Lady Anne's Quest was a very pleasant read.

— Tracey Stewart

Burton Book Review

Lady Anne's Quest was a page-turner embracing the historical setting of the Oregon trail and the quaint hotels along the way. Very well-written, I would recommend Lady Anne's Quest for readers of historical fiction who would enjoy its Western theme.

— Marie Burton

Radiant Lit

Lady Anne’s Quest is more than just a story of romance in the old west. It is a mystery and adventure. Susan Page Davis spins a web of a tale that will captivate you from the moment you begin to read the book. The story doesn’t get bogged down at all, but keeps you wondering what each character is up to moment by moment.

    Lady Anne's Quest, a great historical novel

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

    This second book in Prairie Dreams Series continues where the first book left off. Lady Anne and Elise has accomplished making it across the Oregon Trail with the Wagon Train, and Elise finds herself married. Yes, that right, Married. And Lady Anne is off to the address given for her Uncle David. Only when she arrives at his house, something is just not right. This man isn’t anything like what she thought her uncle would be like. Thankfully Daniel Adams made the trip with her since Elise couldn’t, and she has him to confide in and lean on. Of course she doesn’t want to do much leaning, since Daniel is one who proposed marriage to her while on the trail.

    Another funny and fun, and sometimes mysterious and scary story from Susan Page Davis as Lady Anne continues to search for her uncle and new Earl of Stoneford. Along with the same characters we met in the first book of this series, we continue to meet believable and interesting characters throughout this book, some we like, and some that are just not so loveable. And again, Susan Davis pens a story that will keep you reading because you want to find out what happens and to whom it happens to.

    Another book I highly recommend to you history buff out there, and really to anyone who wants a good clean and fun read. You will sure enjoy this continued story of Lady Anne and her cast. So grab a copy to read and enjoy for yourself. And don’t forget to pick up the first book in the Prairie Dreams Series, along with the third book that will be out soon.

    Thanks to Barbour Publishing for providing a copy of this book for me to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

    5 STARS
    This is the second book of the series. I am more happy where this book finshed than I was the first one. The Lady's Maid. I look forward to the next book in the story.
    Anne has come from England to find her Uncle. Now she has almost found the farm he has bought. Her maid Else got married and stayed in Oregon city.
    Anne is traveling now with a smaller group Wagon Master Rob his wife Dulcie, Dan the guy who fell in love with her on the way west that she refused his marriage proposal.
    At her Uncle farm she is greeted by her Uncle David and a woman named as Millie. Something does not feel right with them and she finds out he is a fraud.
    So Anne and Dan travel alone trying to follow her Uncle David path and a lot of things happen to them along the way. They meet some very helpful people and some means ones.
    Anne and Dan get to know each other a lot better they see each others good side and some bad. Dan finds out she is a Lady and her father land and title will go to her Uncle now.
    Its a nice western romance story with morals. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading more from Susan in the future.
    I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.

    Anne Stone has been searching for quite some time for the only remaining
    family she has left. Her parents died within months of one another and
    now, her future lies in finding her Uncle David Stone. Traveling along
    the Oregon Trail by wagon is not where she would have dreamed her search
    would lead her, especially since leaving her family's estate in London,
    England. But if she couldn't find her Uncle David, the estate would fall
    into her cousin Randolph's hands because her parents had no sons to
    leave the estate to, and a woman could not become heir to the estate.
    All the money that was tied up, now rested in Anne's hand to locate her
    Uncle David. Since he hadn't kept in communication, she has been
    searching for his whereabouts for quite some time, and she now believes
    he has settled in a ranch in Oregon. Anne has made those who know her
    real identity keep it a secret because people had a tendency to treat
    her differently if they knew she was an heir to an estate in London and
    was considered a true Lady! But that doesn't stop Dan Adams from falling
    head over heels in love, even proposing to Anne along the wagon trail.
    But Anne can't fall in love with anyone until she can resolve her future
    and for now that means finding her uncle, no matter where it takes her
    or how long she must travel. When Anne finds her Uncle's ranch, she is
    more than surprised to see he is not alone and not at all like the Uncle
    she remembers from her childhood. Long gone are his well-bred manners
    and English accent. He has gained considerable weight and has apparently
    married a woman named Millie. When she informs him of the deaths of his
    only brothers, he doesn't seem the least bit concerned and instead wants
    to know more about his inheritance. Anne soon realizes along with Dan
    that the man, she believed was her Uncle is not really him and soon
    learns it is a man her Uncle hired to watch over the ranch in his
    absence while he went mining for gold. They call in the sheriff who has
    the man arrested but the woman, Millie flees on horseback. It seems Sam
    Hastings and his sister Millie are con-artists and have been hired to
    make sure that David Stone winds up dead and that Anne Stone doesn't
    find him. What could the connection be and who is behind it all? Will
    Anne find her Uncle before the Hastings do? Can she save him in time? I
    received Lady Anne's Quest by Susan Page Davis compliments of Barbour
    Publishers and Net Galley for my honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed
    this novel from start to finish. I couldn't imagine how a lady of proper
    upbringing could endure have to search for her uncle along a wagon trail
    and later on horse back during the worst types of weather imaginable
    while learning that she would need to depend on others to help her along
    the way from Dan Adams to a cast of lovable characters like the miner
    Whitey! This one is a must read for those who love a bit of historical
    elegance along the western trail! I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and
    can't wait to read more in the Prairie Dreams series! This is the second
    book in the series and since I hadn't read the first one, I can honestly
    say it doesn't need to be read to understand where this one picks up.
    However, I can't wait to go back and see what I missed out on in the
    first book!

    Kind of blah to me

    Anne came to America to find her Uncle so he could claim his title of Earl. In the first book of the series Anna was the side character beside her lady's maid. In this book the 2nd in the series she is the main character and she is now on her own as her lady’s maid is now married. Dan who was on the wagon train with her and finds himself falling hard for her offers to accompany her to meet her uncle. The pair soon realize that the man they meet and says is Anne’s uncle is an imposter and they continue on their search to find him. Will they find him before the one who wants him dead does and will love find them despite their differences?

    I was looking forward to getting to know Anne better in this book after reading about her some in the first one. I was a little disappointed but still enjoyed the book.

    What I liked: I admit there was nothing that really stood out with this book. It was not a bad book but not a great book and there was just not anything I really liked.

    What I did not like: I felt like the characters really did not change much in this book. Really it was a little boring at times. I did not feel like Dan or Anne got developed real well.

    Over all the book was okay. The last 30% of the book was interesting enough with the suspense plot that I found myself enjoying it.

    Prairie Dreams Series Book 2

    Lady Anne's Quest by Susan Page Davis
    Book 2 in the Prairie Dreams Series
    In the first book, The Lady's Maid, we watch as Lady Anne and her maid Elise travel from England to America in search of Anne's Uncle David. Her father and Uncle John have died leaving the Earldom to David. She refuses to give up on finding him to take his rightful place rather than another relative. Her search continues and leads her to Eugene, Oregon along with her friends Rob, Dulcie and Dan. When they have to travel further yet only Daniel Adams goes with her. She really liked Dan as a friend but nothing more, after all he was going to be a farmer here while she would be returning to England.

    Daniel had went with his brother Hector to their new land but he couldn't keep his mind off of Anne. Finally Hector sends him off to find her and see if there is any hope at all to gain her affections. He travels with her to head where the latest rumor says her Uncle is. That he had bought a mine. They come upon all types of adventures as they travel along. Just about the time it looks like Anne might find her elusive Uncle David something else seems to come between them and send them in the wrong direction.

    I enjoyed both of these books in this series. Susan did a great job of bringing characters alive. There was Dan who was holding onto a small hope that he could win Anne, and I found myself hurting for him each time he wondered where his life would be if she never did come around. Anne who had to hang on to each thread of hope even though it often looked like she might not find her Uncle alive. The villains that you wanted to see fail at their underhanded ways and the villain that you thought maybe had some good in them...somewhere deep down. The third book in this series, A Lady in the Making, will be David's story and will be released in October.

    **Received through NetGalley for review.
