More About This Book

Overview

At age seventeen, Helen Pendleton considered herself to be a modern woman, eager to embrace the new century. While the normal path for a female in her New York town was matrimony and children, she shocked her parents by planning to attend college and hoping to eventually become a schoolteacher. So when her neighbor, Albert, surprised her by proposing marriage, she was smugly confident in her decision to decline his offer.

Yet time and adversity changed everything.

Three years later, with her parents deceased, and college a fading memory, she’s in dire straits. Her father’s business is bankrupt, and she’s losing her home. She is desperate, and as she reaches her lowest ebb, she receives a letter from Albert.

After she spurned him, he and his family moved west, pursuing their dream of homesteading in the Dakotas. When he hears of her dilemma, he offers marriage again, tempting her with tales of his prosperous ranch and the fine house he’s built for her out on the prairie.

With Helen out of ideas or options, she accepts his proposal, abandoning her prior certainty that she can be free and independent. But Albert has lied to her about his life on the Great Plains. He has no aptitude for ranching, and his family’s homestead is a bleak, barren place where wind, weather, and isolation guarantee that their survival is always in question.

Helen arrives in the Dakotas, seeking the security Albert has promised. But she is unprepared for the grueling reality that awaits. Trapped in a downward spiral of work and worry, and wed to a man she could never love, she must find the inner strength to endure the hand that fate has dealt her.

Bestselling novelist, Cheryl Holt, paints a world of triumph and tragedy, of joy and sorrow, where people are tested to their limits and the best and worst of humanity is revealed. Mud Creek is a tremendous, accessible, and heartrending book that whirls to a gripping climax, featuring Ms. Holt’s most memorable characters in years.

    Good book.

    Slow start in this book, but once the story took off it was hard to put down.

    The auther

    Its great. You gave a good story. The only problems were missing "" and the beggining was zoomed right into the story without discribing anything. Over all it was awesome. I didnt like how you put those() in for discribing who turned into warriors when you could have put just in a plain old sentence saying those things. Good story! Keep the great work up!

    Mudshadows path chapter 4 ( yeeeaaah sorry its late ^^" )

    Everythings been different sinse Brightflower's death. Bluespirit doesnt act the same. Mudpaw wants to help him but Bluespirit just tells him leave, like he always says... Mudpaw feels like its all his fault. Sighing Mudpaw goes to Bluespirit one more time. "Bluespirit we need to talk-" Bluespirit cut him off and growled No. Go. Away. Mudpaw started to pad away then he stopped. He turned around and said No. Im NOT leaving. I understand your son Foxpaw died fighting, but he died with HONOR. Defending his clan. And Brightflower, if she hadnt jumped in the current Quailfeather would have died. ( Quailpaw is now Quailfeather, Dappledpaw is now Dappledrain and Stonepaw is now Stonetail ) another young life would have been gone. But remember Bluespirit, your not the only one who lost someone. This war between riverclan has ben going on for 6 moons. LOTS of cats died. It was sad yes. They grieved yes. But do they get mad at everyone about it? No. They go on. They know they have to win this for them. They pick themselves up, and fight. Knowing they cant give up. Not now. Bluespirit just stared at his paws. He looked up and his face had looked like he woke up from a nightmare. Mudpaw, what you just told me made me relize how kitish i was acting. This war we lost more cats than we can count. Not just Brightflower and Foxpaw... Thank you Mudpaw. But I can see you will become a wise cat. Something windclan will be proud of. Then Grasstail yowled to get the clans attention. Everyone! As we were patroling Riverclan attacked... Boulderstar lost a life. Mudpaw thought how many lives does he have left? Grasstail contineued and said We must strike back soon! We cant let them think we are weak! He heard windclan yowl with agreement, even Bluespirit. Mudpaw knew he was thinking about his mate and son. Boulderstar limped to the clearing. Spottedears ran to asisst her leader. Then Stormflower ran over to help. Some windclan warrior started to talk amongst themselves in groups. Mudpaw saw Featherpaw talking with one group. Probobly talking about battle he thought. Then Grasstail came over to Bluespirit. Bluespirit! I got some news for you. Come with me. They walked off far through the territory. Mudpaw sneaked behind to see what the news was. Grasstail finally stopped and spoke. "Bluespirit. I found out that Brightflower is alive. Riverclan is keeping her prisoner." ~end of chapter 4
