Dusting off some of my TBR pile. Historical fiction, YA sorta. I mean she has to grow up *really* fast all things considered. It really is about personal strength and choosing your own path. It's a little outside of what I've read from her in the past. She did after all pen Positive Lightning which is in my all time top 10 books of all time. IDK, thought it was a great read. And that closes out everything there is for me to read from her. Sigh.

An evocative story of a young woman!

In the era in which this story takes place, women exist only to submit to men, to do the household, to become the mother of his child. No career, no life of her own. Mayme needs to go "undercover" to make her dream come true. She is defiant, doesn't want to go down a path that others have chosen for her, she is quite unlike any other women. Mayme is certainly not a typical girl for that time period. I was rooting for her because I wanted so badly for her to su

This is not a romance, but a great historical fiction. Train travel, Old west and Indians. When I got to the end I was surprised it was over, but it ended in a logical place, I just wanted more to the story. I heard there may be a sequel, so that would be fun.

I've really enjoyed the main character and her adventures. No romance was definitely a change of pace for me. And It was nice that she met only good people on her journey. And even if some weren't that great they didn't negatively affect her journey.
I'm not that happy with the ending because while the message is basic but great it's not like the people she decided to stay with offered her more from life than anyone she met earlier. And I felt it was a real disservice for her character how quic
