Amanda Pearson gets jilted by her fiance, which leads her and her father to set out west, on a 3,000 mile journey in 1837, to be a missionary to the Nez Perce Indians. What she encounters along the way shows she truly is a woman of courage. There will be many heartaches, sorrows, and dangers. But along the way she will also encounter people she will eventually call her friends. A fascinating journey that kept me wondering what would happen next. ( )

Going through the difficult time our country is facing motivates me to look to the past, at "simpler" times. On thing that I learn when I look back is no matter when you look there is always some form of struggle, heartbreak, and injustice, which are also themes in Woman of Courage. Set in the west during the most primitive of times, Amanda Pearson, a Quaker, embarks on the journey of a lifetime, drawing courage from her faith, and a vow that she made to her father.

The circumstances that Amanda encounters on her journey are unfathomable, but what really drew me into the story is the incredible imagery of the journey into the untamed west. Wanda E. Brunstetter uses her pen like a paintbrush, painting the most vivid pictures. Oh to see that untainted beauty!

One of the biggest drawbacks of this novel for me was the "Quaker talk." I understand that is how they spoke, but a lot of Amanda's dialogue is so wrought with "thee's" and "thou's" that it is distracting from what she is trying to convey. As the story progresses, so does Amanda's maturity, and she slowly adapts to the western way of speaking, but is refreshing and such a relief.

The heartbreak and struggles that befall Amanda would bring anyone to their knees, and I love how steadfast she holds to her faith. Woman of Courage is a very emotional, yet inspiring story and truly a must read.

*I have voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the Barbour Publishing through NetGalley. All views and opinions are completely honest, and my own. ( )

Amanda Pearson is a Quaker woman of deep faith taught to her by her preacher father. When her fiance breaks off their engagement, she and her father decide to leave New York. They sell their home and belongings and head west to become missionaries. Their goal is to bring God to the native people. The journey is perilous and both her father and guide die leaving her along to try and find the way to the fort. She becomes deathly ill and is rescued by an Indian Woman. It turns out that she is married to a white man and speaks enough English to communicate. Amanda and Mary (Yellow Feather) become friends and Mary becomes Amanda's fist Christian.

This story is very well written. There are many adventures, trials and tribulations that Amanda goes through. We learn about various tribes and some of their customs. We find out about kidnappings, slavery and relationships between the tribes. Through flashbacks, we find out how Mary ended up married to a white man and what happened in her past. Amanda was very courageous and true to her faith and beliefs. She was also a sweet and caring woman. I also felt sorry for her with all that she went though. It seemed like so many things went wrong, but with her prayers, the Lord was there protecting her and brought her through many situations. I do not want to tell you more about the actual story as it is very interesting to uncover as you read this tale. This was The Collector's Edition of the story and also contained a short story about "Little Fawn" and what happens to her as the story continues. It gave some closure to some aspects of the story. A very enjoyable Historical Fiction book with a Christian plotline. The publisher, Barbour Publishing, Incorporated, generously provided me with a copy of this book to read. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. ( )

I did not know that Wanda wrote historical fiction as well as Amish fiction. I do enjoy the story. I got the book woman of courage Collection edition. We get the full story of Woman of Courage along with Woman of Hope which is Little Fawn story.

We meet up with Amanda Person and we go along for her journey. That I really what this book is mostly about. We get a little bit more of Little Fawn's story in the story of Woman of Hope. Wanda does a wonderful job with her writing that she does take you back in time.

Go along with Amanda as she travels you go along as she goes though some of trails and learns about where she is going. Will she find love? Will she be able to spread God word to the Indians? To find out and to read Little Fawns story you should pick up this book. ( )
