Woman of Courage

Reeling from a broken engagement, Amanda Pearson decides to leave her hurts behind and travel West with her father as missionaries to a Nez Pierce camp. Her road is fraught with many troubles and sorrows. And she has to decide if she has the will to go on. But after a near death experience she feels like she's been given a second chance, and she wants to make it count. If only Buck McFadden wasn't confusing all her thoughts. She enjoys the company of Yellow Feather, her new friend who is responsible for keeping her alive. But when Buck makes multiple visits to check on her, she feels drawn to him, and wishes not to, as he has no thoughts for her Christianity. And even more pressing is her desire to reach the reservation she has been sent out be a missionary for, will she ever reach it, and what will happen along the way to the people she is traveling with and more importantly her emotions? I always hate to leave an unfavorable review. But I really did not enjoy this book. I did like the idea of the story, and certain elements like the historical side of it. But I really couldn't get past all the constant "trying to convert people " . I understand she was a missionary. But it was just too much and too forced, and it took away from what could have been a nice story. I would still be willing to read more of this authors books, just to see if this one was a flop for me. But I wouldn't really recommend this book.. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
