35 starsThis was an interesting and dge of your seat story in many parts as a legendary robber tries to hunt down the prey his brother was hunting when the hero killed the brother in order to protect the lady Whewdark bad guy here Very Dickensian sort of character the type to fully indulge in trying to overthrow the law completely I very much loved how strong the Scriptural bits of the story were Sadly you don t see much in the way of Christian lessons in Christian fiction nowadays and I loved that this story gave me some real meat to think over That s what I want when I pick up a Christian BookIn Contrast However It Also Included Five Actual Profanities Not contrast however it also included five actual profanities Not profanity I was hugely disappointed to find these words in a book that was also teaching a great Christian lesson To use the name of God as an xclamation or an xpression of surprise of dismay makes my soul hurt This really dimmed my njoyment of an otherwise xcellent bookI njoyed Thatcher and felt drawn to Abigail but it was sweet little Emma who really stole my heart and made me worry for the One Ticket To Texas ending What a perfect addition she was to the storyI wish thending hadn t come so fast but the final glimpse was sweetThanks to the publisher for a free reading copy A favorable review was not reuired This is an American Western disguised as a Regency And it s not a very good disguise at that What do we have here IMO we have a mail order bride romance never mind the book description A taciturn troubled still waters lawman out hunting a bad hombre outlaw is hired by an innocent miss to Helpmate escort her safely to her arranged marriage fiance Along the way the lawman is alsontrusted with delivering a baby girl to her aunt s care since the father is no longer able to keep herThe journey with baby and woman is fraught with danger shootouts and Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy encounters with the bad hombres carriage breakdowns illness and what not We didn t have a river overflowing or a bridge collapsing wild animals attacking or natives on the uprise but Griep suppliednough action to make this an almost neverending road trip And totally off main topic she left me with the puzzle of in the world those baby s clouts were washed out after use on this long journey And how many spare they had along for the tripThis as the spare nappiesclouts they had along for the tripThis as the proclaims is a Regency so it s set in England The lawman is a Bow Street horse patrol captain the outlaws are highwaymen the mail order bride is a rich merchant s daughter who is to marry a man of the minor peerage The ninny of a heroine BTW who has only seen this baron fiance once before believes the marriage is a love match not a marriage of convenienceBut this is Regency in name only The behavior of the characters and much of the vocabulary and phrases used struck me as anachronistic for 1800s England and in character with 1850s America Although Griep stuck in a bunch of La xclamations by the women I guess thinking that s a typical English thing to do phrases such as to hash this out I ll be a pig s uncle save your drama suit yourself powerful thirst I should head back hold your cards close and vocabulary choices such as pesky hair raising and trail in the meaning of path or track put me into an American Western mindset Not to mention the fact that the hero often addressed the heroine as lady as in Lady you should do this or Listen lady As for anachronistic behavior a very blatant and basic one is the whole trip this heroine undertakes on her own with only the lawman to accompany here Not likely at her social status level Besides which who travels without any fami.
