Overview

From Savannah to Montana...

In 1916, Southern belle Alanna Lessing travels to Montana on a mission—to rescue her older sister from the influence of suffragettes and bring her back home to Savannah where she belongs. Alanna fears that her sister, Margaret, has allowed herself to be swept away by these newfangled beliefs.

The Christmas season is drawing near, and sleigh bells are ringing among the snow-covered peaks. The charming town of Missoula begins to grow on Alanna, and so do a few of its inhabitants—particularly neighboring rancher Tanner Jacobs. Alanna takes it upon herself to turn Tanner into a true Southern gentleman. He plays along, in part because he likes being near her, and in part because he’s intrigued by her very different way of life. Will their differences bind their hearts, or forever keep them apart?

I didn't like Alanna at first. She seemed really snobby, thinking her way of life in the South was so much better than everyone else. But she really changed in the courseof the book. She began to see things-- like the suffargette movement from a different perspective. And she finally started to relax and be the person she was always meant to be. It was a good book. I really liked the insight into the women's lib movement in the early 1900s.

Janice Thompson in her new book, “Sleigh Belles” Book Two in the Belles and Whistles series published by Summerside Press takes us into the life of Alanna Lessing. From the back cover: From Savannah to Montana… The year is 1916, and Southern belle Alanna Lessing is headed to Montana on a mission-to rescue her older sister from the influence of suffragettes and bring her back home to Savannah where she belongs. Alanna is opposed to the women’s suffrage movement, which is at its heyday in Montana. She fears that her sister, Margaret, has allowed herself to be swept away by these newfangled beliefs. The Christmas season is drawing near, and sleigh bells are ringing among the snow-covered peaks. The charming town of Missoula begins to grow on Alanna, and so do a few of its inhabitants-particularly neighboring rancher Tanner Jacobs. Alanna takes it upon herself to turn Tanner into a true Southern gentleman. He plays along, in part because he likes being near her, and in part because he’s intrigued by her very different way of life. Will their differences bind their hearts, or forever tear them apart? The Suffragette Movement, a Southern lady trying to influence a Montana rancher in the ways of the South and Christmas time. All of these elements are present in ”Sleigh Belles” and, on top of everything, there is romance. Ms. Hanna is a fine writer and she puts clever little things in the book to keep us smiling like every chapter begins with an excerpt from Ellie Cannady editor of The Modern Suffragette and how it plays out in the chapter. “Sleigh Belles” is a fun read, all the characters are likable and Ms. Hanna has a way of bringing you into the story and making the lives of the characters very real. I liked this book and am looking forward to more in this series. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Summerside Press. I was not required to write a positive review.
