I don't even want to give this book a half of a star!
The most BIZARRE book ever! I have trudged through more than 2/3 of this book and I'm quitting.
I love pioneer stories and have read tons of them. I chose this book to read because of the setting in Deadwood, SD. I've been there several times and walked the streets. I am SO disappointed in this book.
This is the most absurd and bizarre story line I've ever read about pioneer days. Absolutely horrible abuse of women AND men. Jane is not strong, just annoyingly stubborn. If she'd been STRONG, she'd have fought back and not let a man turn her into a slave. This whole story line was a joke.
The author portrays Deadwood as being nothing but weak people who let one "man" have so much control over them. A bunch of zombies who never, ever fight back against him - that is, until the author wants to end the book.
I have read a few other books by this author, and while not my favorite author, at least they weren't like this. This is just totally bizarre. Jane is supposed to be so strong yet she allows herself to become a slave without even trying to fight back. Franklin is pathetic. I flipped through the book's ending to find out if Trent finally got killed off. SPOILER ALERT - he doesn't. Why allow this monster to go do more evil and slavery of women, etc.????
I have another of this author's books on hold through the library. I'm cancelling the hold. No thanks. I won't be reading any more of this author's books after this one.
Interesting storyline with some twists and turns; the theme of grace is evident!
