Why did I read this? I think I read a good review of the book.
This book had me engaged from the first two lines of the story. This is the story of a young girl whose mother died in childbirth, whose brother runs away from home to become an outlaw and whose father died in a tragic horseback riding accident. This is her adventure through the old west in which she encounters corruption, gender stereotyping and more. It deals with gender roles, siblings, and more. I can’t do the story justice, but this is one of the best books I have read this year.
What is with the title of the review? I will be nominating this book to be read by the book group I am part of.
