A memorable novel about a young girls flight from across the Rocky Mountains in the early 1900's from a disastrous marriage which saw her murder her husband. Her two brothers in law pursue her in revenge. The story was filled with great characters and places. Well worth a read.
Incredibly slow with description that doesn't seem to lead anywhere. If you want nice imagery, this book will allow your mind to create a lot, but I quit reading after Part I.
Very descriptive through the entire book.. In fact, for me it was a bit much. If there is a followup I doubt I will read it. However I liked how it ended.
This was my first Adamson novel and it lived up to the high praise.
Her characters are vivid and her descriptions are on point.
Very enjoyable! Five stars
This is a little treasure. Not a highland outlander at all. This is very well written. The characters are not only well developed with backgrounds that give them plausibility and motivation in the storyline, but give them life and believability as to their actions and decisions. It was at the same time both a gripping tale and a fun read. Too bad Gil Adamson doesn't have more books.
Another hidden gem in the Canadian literary scene. An old west tale starring a woman with a dark past who tries to evade capture. You don't have to be a fan of historical fiction to enjoy this well-paced story of escape and strength. I couldn't put it down!
Serving suggestion: baked beans and beef jerky.
So enjoyed this tale & would like more similar. Kept my interest, good descriptions, liked the writing style. Could believe it really happened.
Great writing and wonderful story with Canadian connection. Very much in the style of the Englishman's Boy. There is poetry in the descriptions and the vocabulary. This mysterious woman chased by the menacing twin brothers of her dead husband is desparate to save herself. We follow her flight through the old West and stop in Frank, AB. Loosely based on a true story, the author has brought the whole thing to life. Loved it.
Outstanding writing and a brilliant story beautifully told. An absolute page-turner; rollicking good read.
A suspenseful story about a woman on the run from vindictive twins, set in the west of the early 1900's. Adamson is a poet, and it shows in the writing.
