The Lone Warrior: Once Upon A Time in the West, a book review

Lori Austin has written a compelling post civil War Western romance, about a farmer’s wife in search of her daughter who was stolen by dog soldiers and taken to a Shianne camp to live. Along the way she meets a former soldier who is known as the “white ghost”, wanted in both Colorado and Kansas as well as being chased by indian warriors.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that as I read this book via the NLS talking book program for the blind and physically handicapped, I laughed, cried, fought, and fell in love with these fabulous characters, and if you’re an avid reader and love a good story, I believe you will too. This book is an action packed ride from Kansas to Colorado territory where in order for Rose to find her daughter, She and Luke must fight off Indians, outrun lawmen, and they get into several scrapes, fall in love, and even get married among the Indians along the way. The little girl is not found by her, it happens the other way around. You won’t be able to put this one down, but you’d better have a hanky or a box of tissues close by, because you will need them.
Happy reading and God bless.

Book review, Before The Larkspur Blooms By Caroline Fyffe

If you read Where the Wind Blows, and couldn’t get enough of Chase and Jessie Logan, Gabe Garrison, Jake, and Little Sarah, have no fear, their story continues in this heart warming, spine tinngling western, which I have dubbed an unofficial sequel to Where the Wind Blows.
In Before The Larkspur Blooms, Ms. Fyffe introduces a new character named Tom Donavan, who grew up in Logan Meadows, which starts as a small town. However, with the railroad slated to have a stop in Logan Meadows, people start trickling into town, and settling in among the natives, including a hotshot rustler by the name of Rome Littleton, who made Tom take the wrap when he got shot in the head eight years ago.
In one way this book reminds me of the movie Eldorado, where John Wayne’s character has a bullet lodged in his back, accept Tom’s bullet is lodged at the base of his skull. Well, I don’t want to spoil this one for you, so I’ll say that things get pretty shady, and the characters will drive you crazy in this one too, but let me warn you, Before The Larkspur Blooms will bring a smile to your face, a tear to your eye, and it will melt your heart. However, If you haven’t read Where the Wind blows as of yet, I suggest you read that one first,because if you don’t you might get a little confused by some of the goings on in Before The Larkspur Blooms. This is why I think Caroline Fyffe wrote them as a mini series, because you can’t read one without reading the other.
Happy reading, and I hope you enjoy both of these incredible stories.
