Fallen Women by Sandra Dallas
Normally, I like the glimpses Sandra Dallas gives us into times past. Through her writing, I've explored the days when the west was a new land, still being shaped and discovered. The women in her books have character, strength that they might not be aware of, but that helps them live in the raw, new land where they are settled. I usually learn something, too, which is always an added bonus. But this book just didn't make the cut for me. The writing didn't come to life. I abandoned it at page 114. Beret, and her dead sister, and all the other surrounding characters just couldn't hold me. Sorry.
