Who says women can't write about the Old West? Magnolia Belle writes a wonderful story set in a real cow town of the Old West. What sets it apart is the main character. Not a story about your typical gunslinger...nor one of a land baron, or outlaws. It is the story of Amanda Clark...a young beautiful woman who took a one way ticket to Texas to start a new life for herself. This story has all the elements of a good western read. Gunsmoke, cowboys, whiskey.....and a love triangle that only a woman could write. Magnolia Belle really knows how to heat things up and keep you glued to the pages in this romantic story of the Old West.
To put it simply, Tascosa by Magnolia Belle is a must read. I could not put this novel down as I was drawn into a story filled with passion, strength and true emotion. As a reader you are swept back in time when Texas was a vast deadly territory, filled with Indians, cowboys and the outstanding character of Miss Amanda. The story Tascosa follows Miss Amanda as she strives to make her own in a world dominated by men. Pure love is found and lost within these pages, as Miss Amanda builds a ragged restaurant into a thriving business. All the while a rugged young cowboy by the name of Nate sweeps Amanda off of her feet. Unannounced to them the local land baron sets his eyes on the lovely newcomer. Obsession drives the land baron to unearned gains with Amanda when Nate is thought dead after he crosses paths with a vicious panther. But his love for liquor tares the land baron back down to reality when Nate reappears wanting his dream and true love back. Can the young lovers survive the onslaught that heads there way, or will the man who always had his way win in the end. Any reader is sure to agree with me when I say; Magnolia Belle defiantly has a way with words that leaves the reader wanting more. - Shawn Weaver Author of Sense of Honor
Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in the 1880s in a rugged and untamed part of Texas? Magnolia Belle introduces you to life in Tascosa, a Texas panhandle town. Though the characters are fictional, both history buffs and those who enjoy a story about life in the 1880's will delight at her colorful depiction and great dialogue written in the jargon of that era. The story will take you from shootouts to romantic scenes. All aspects of life and all its struggles can be found. I did a Google search to find out what is out there about Tascosa and found many factual places and names (http://www.texasescapes.com/TOWNS/Vega/Oldham-County-Courthouse-Vega-Texas.htm#museum). Tascosa is an excellent book that is worth the read.
