I really enjoyed getting to know Hannah. While the history is very important to the story, Giles does a fine job making Hannah alive. Her background is curious—she’s actually 25 at the start, unmarried and apparently has never considered it. She has also not done much socializing, particularly as she has never seen a wedding until she herself weds Tice. Yet she seems to have no problem getting to know Tice, then Ann Logan, and finally Jane Manifee.

In addition to gradually revealing the contours of Hannah’s character, Giles also portrays the development of deep love and affection between Hannah and Tice and the bonding of the family of Hannah, Tice, and daughter Janie. All of this was great reading. Of particular interest to me at least was Hannah’s secret fancies about creeks “singing” and love of gourd flowers for their beauty; sadly, this side of her character she keeps hidden even from Tice, because her father had told her never to talk of such things.

As for the background, the frontier housekeeping is fascinating. The Revolutionary War is something happening far away, as represented by a single conversation. Occasionally some of the folklore bits seem forced, but overall the dialogue is natural.

Highly recommended to those who want to travel back in time to a realistic frontier setting. ( )

Samuel Moore and his daughter Hannah set out for the border country
with a party led by George Rogers Clark but left to follow the
Kentucky River to Boone's Fort. As the story opens, Hannah is nursing
her father, injured when an axe slips and cuts his leg. By the time
Tice Fowler, on his way to Logan's Fort, stumbles upon them alone in
the wilderness, Samuel is dying from blood poisoning. When Samuel
dies, Tice takes Hannah to the fort, where women are scarce, and
Hannah finds herself besieged by suitors. Only with Tice, as silent
and downright as herself, does Hannah feel at ease. Finally, she turns
to the bashful Tice and asks him to marry her and take her away from
the crowded fort. Together, they stake their claim to land, build a
cabin, and start a family. They endure the harsh frontier life, the
threat of hungry wolves, a killing blizzard, and Indian raids.

I grew up loving the Little House on the Prairie books and Hannah
Fowler almost reads like a grown up version of those books. The
dialect, while well done, does take a little getting used to, but that
is a minor complaint. At its base, this is a touching and tender love story. ( )
