I was reeled into the history and setting found in reading Echo Canyon. This historical fiction by Susan Page Davis was a fantastic read with the descriptive words that placed me into the action and surroundings of Utah and Fort Bridger across the border. This story was filled with history of our country and of Mormon settlements with their beliefs in the 1800’s, suspense, action, Christian faith and romance. An amazing read from Davis. I look forward to reading more of her historical fiction books in the future. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author as a winner on a blog post. I was not required to write a review, but have expressed my sincere thoughts for Echo Canyon.
The Sherman brothers, Jake and Ed, as well as the female protagonists of Laura Sherman and Iris Perkins are strong characters. Echo Canyon contains some frightening moments as Iris is rescued from a bad situation in Utah. Horse lovers will enjoy this book as horses play important roles. I enjoyed Echo Canyon and recommend this historical fiction to others. I received an e-book copy of Echo Canyon from the author, Susan Page Davis. This is my honest opinion.
I enjoyed this story of young Iris and learning about the hard life this young Mormon woman would have lived. Settling in Utah in the 1800’s was a lot of hard work for Iris when she was placed into a family she didn’t know because a husband had been chosen for her. Hard work and trying to fit in where she didn’t want to be.. I was totally rooting for her to run to the shelter offered by the Sherman’s. Wild horses, the Army, the struggles of settling the wildness of Utah and the faith it took to survive made for a great backdrop for a little romance and a wild race to the end. I was gifted a copy by the author and my review is voluntary..
I really liked reading Echo Canyon. The author tells a great story. Ms. Davis painted a very good picture of the social climate of the Mormon settlement and the mistrust between them and the army in the 1800s. There were also several relationship dynamics. The budding romance between Iris and Ed, the established romance between Jake and Laura, and the relationship between Ed and Jake as brothers. The relationship I really enjoyed reading about, though, was the friendship that was established between Laura and Iris. Laura saw someone who was frightened and reached out. I like to think that is something we can all do. I would recommend this book. I received an e-copy of this book from the author and was not required to write a positive review.
