About the Author

As a child I had the freedom to roam our Kansas farm while riding my horse and favorite friend, Nellie. I also attended one of the last in the country, one-room schoolhouses for my first eight years of education. I became quite independent (it sounds better than saying I was a little stubborn) and a self-learner.

When I became an adult I fulfilled my dream of becoming a wife and mother. My high school sweetheart and I are still together today. And I am still finding new and exciting things to explore. My interests, likes, and dislikes are changing constantly and I'm usually most passionate with whatever I'm doing at the time. But two of my passions-writing and painting-seem to be loves that are not going to leave me soon.
After my first novel, The Rocking Horse, I changed my genre to historical fiction. Never Waste Tears was the result.

Never Waste Tears is an extraordinary and well-written historical fiction novel. This tale takes place on the desolate prairies of Kansas during the 1800’s. Gloria Zachgo does a fabulous job grabbing the reader’s attention and placing them in the midst of her character’s lives from the very first page. Life was harsh in the 1800’s and the early American settlers struggled to survive it. Neighbors and friends were few and far in-between, and Indian raids were a real danger and a constant worry for the pioneers. Rebecca was from a refined family in Ohio and Nathan, from a depressed home that had been torn apart by war’s tragedies. He dreamt of having his own homestead one day, and Rebecca embraced that dream when she married him. She had no idea though, how hard life would be in Kansas on the prairies. Living in a dugout, and having dirt for her floor and walls, which she  had to share with snakes and vermin was more than she had bargained for. Nathan and Rebecca met a couple along the way though, Carl and Hannah, who became close friends and helped them in their struggle to adapt to the pioneer life. The story is told from five people’s points of view. I didn’t find this confusing, but I did find that it slowed the pace of the book down as each person told their view of sometimes the same story. The  book is meticulously written and compelling. I loved how the author was able to transport me back in time, by capturing the essence and dialect of the pioneer settlers. I truly felt as if I lived among them. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction. I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
