In this stunning sequel to the tale begun in These Is My Words and continued in the beloved Sarah's Quilt, pioneer woman Sarah Agnes Prine Elliott is nearing bankruptcy. After surviving drought and the rustling of her cattle in winter 1906, Sarah is shocked when her son brings home a bride who was slated to become a nun. Meanwhile, neighbor Udell Hanna is pressing for Sarah to marry him. Then a stagecoach accident puts Sarah in the path of three strangers, who will forever change her life....
Nancy Turner has done it again. I'm sitting here in awe. How can one be so connected to characters? I feel like I know these people. Shared a life with them through these stories. My emotions were ablaze through this final chapter in the Sarah Diaries. Truly an amazing story. Sarah is a woman of strength, honor, gumption, and love. She is my favorite heroine to date. I love her stories. I do hope you all read this trilogy. It will touch your heart in so many ways.
"A woman who dreams of a good home with a man who holds for her only a poor love is putting a $50 saddle on a $20 horse. She'd be far better off single than riding with him."
