I began reading A Clearing in the Wild with mixed emotions, simply because I read All Together in One Place by this same author, and I did not enjoy it at all. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this book. The story was interesting enough to keep me turning the pages, although, there were a few places that could have been edited to shorten the story some. I am actually anxious to read the other two in the series, and I hope they'll be as good as this one.

I read this book for this month's "1st in a Series" theme in my online book club, The Reading Cove. It had been in my TBR pile for a few years so was glad to finally get to it.

But I was disappointed.

The pacing was quite slow and meandering, the plot a bit dry and dull. The settings were interesting. The migration from Missouri to the Oregon Trail in the 1850s had great potential; and the heroine was devoted to her husband and her religious clan, but also thought for herself. I just wasn't engaged enough with her gradual coming-of-age, it felt like pretty standard reading fare, nothing special really, so I got bored and had to skim to the end.

I give this one a C, average read.
