Recommended to Lataun by: Julia Roberts
I think I was a Crazy Woman to stick with this book! I hate when the cover of the book looks so promising but then you read the book and you find out that the book was only what the cover said and nothing more. I could have read the cover and been as satisfied as I was after reading all 239 pages, in fact, more satisfied.

Another recommendation from Julia Roberts...I think I'm 4 for 4 on recommendations from famous people. (as in, I didn't really like any of their tastes)

I read this book on Julia Roberts recommendation. Funny, huh? It tells the story of a very religious (but not churchy) dreamer that marries a minister and travels west. She is kidnapped by Indians and lives in their tribe and much of them think she is some sort of witch. It was an interesting story and while I didn't love it, I was happy to have spent a few hours enjoying it.

I found this book at the library discard sale for 50 cents. It wasn't the best book in the world, but it did manage to hold my interest. It was corny and wierd (in some parts), as well as romantic and sad.

Such a sad book but fascinating. I was surprised at its power to carry me along, except for the long sections about the Apache Tribe. Every time Sara was in the story, I was mesmerized.
