Good people are like candles; they burn themselves up to give others lightSandra Dallas presents a thought provoking novel encompassing a very different Western movement in America It's February of 1852 in Chicago with fierce winds propelling off the lake and bone chilling rain soaking the brave souls who venture out onto the wooden sidewalks and muddy terrainMaggie clutches the hand of her four year old daughter and reads the bulletin tacked to the outside of a meeting hall It's an ad calling for good Christian unmarried women with high moral character to make the trip to Goosetown California The gold fields are filled with men who made the prior journey and are seeking wives for this community Two ministers will accompany the women on this long and arduous trip over land treacherous by Nature and so by the unknownDallas will introduce us to these women who will bring the basics of necessities along with them But we will come to find that they all carry the oppressive weight of their secrets and their past lives Prior incidents will never stay buried in Chicago but will accompany them on the harsh trails step by step leering in the shadows As the journey begins the women feel out of place with one another and react to the hardships as individuals The time period never prepared women to work together as a productive unit As the journey progresses they are forced to rely on the strength of the group made up of varying untapped skills and talents I almost shook my head to think that times haven't changed much Women still have difficulty putting aside the power of one to the power of manyWestering Women is a deep character study of the human spirit under the most dire of circumstances It shines a light on the dynamics of bravery and self sacrifice that one can only imagine during the Western expansionwith some mighty female voices in the mixI received a copy of this book through NetGalley for an honest opinion My thanks to St Martin's Press and to Sandra Dallas for the opportunity
