Twelve brave, caring and with such big hearts and souls, faced odds beyond belief to settle the "wild west". These women were from all parts of the world, all different, and yet all the same in some ways. Their lives were anything but easy and as women in those days, they were not recognized as people who could follow their hearts, their dreams and beliefs. Men were the ones who did that. These women went against all the barriers and overcame. Sure, they struggled, fought, gave everything they had and then some, but they bravely and courageously did so. They all had so much to give and give they did.
The author lets you look into the lives of these 12 women and their struggles, defeats and accomplishments.
Each story will have a picture to go with it in the released version.
I took one look at the cover and immediately had to read this book. I didn't stop until I had finished.
As the reader, you get to follow the lives of:
Nellie Cashman, a nurse, gold prospector
Aunt Clara Brown: community leader who was at once a slave
Abigail Scott Dunway: an Oregon suffragette
Charley Parkhurst: The most celebrated stagecoach driver in the West
This book is an inspiration to all the women who have their dreams and against all odds can follow and achieve them.
I received a complimentary copy of this ARC from the author, Marianne Monson and Night Owl Reviews in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
