Heartfelt story of two unlikely travelers that share a different and dangerous journey across brutal Western territory. Good pace, easy read.

After spending months recuperating from a head wound, Union LT. John Chenneville returns home only to be told a short time later that his sister, sister's husband, and infant child had been murdered. Chenneville learns the the man responsible, A. J. Dodd, was not charged and is on the run. Thus begins an journey that takes him from Missouri, Arkansas, Indian Territory, and Texas to seek vengeance for his family. This is an epic story set in the post, reconstruction Civil War. Chenneville would make for a great movie and I hope it's brought to the silver screen. I will be seeking out additional novels written by Paulette Jiles.… (més)

Good book, fairly quick read. The story involves an older man in the 1860s after the war, making a living by travelling from town to town in Texas reading the news to the local people. He accepts a job of transporting a young girl who had been captured by the Kiowa four years ago to her relatives in San Antonio. The story unfolds from there, the difficulties of the journey, how the girl learned to trust him, and how in some ways she changed from Kiowa to her former self, but never completely.

Historical fiction following the plight of Adair Colley whose family lost their farm to the Union Militia who decided who were not loyal to the South during the time of the Civil War. Adair finds herself sent to a women?s prison in St Louis where she meets a Union major in charge of the inmates confessions. They meet regularly and love happens. He aids in her ability to escape by giving her two $25 gold pieces and promise to meet at her family farm after the war. It is quite a read, with historical letters mixed in with the story. Enjoyed a lot.… (més)
