This was a great book. Didnt realize I would enjoy these books from so long ago. It kept my attention as well as any we have read from the present day. We didnt know it had a prior book "Pearle" when we read it and would have liked to read that one first but at the same time it really didnt matter.
I loved this book! I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to get the sequel! Great for anyone who likes Christian fiction.
This is a great book. It took me a couple of days to read it due to being busy. And it is book 1 in a series of 3 of Dakotah Territory. And i am ready to start book 2.
I love Lauraine Snelling. I don't know how I have missed reading her works earlier. I'm working on going back and getting all of her series read.
Part of the overall Dakota Treasures series. These are wonderful books. Inspirational reading with an excellent story. Lauraine Snelling's books ahve been recommeneded by Sons of Norway, I am glad they turned me on to her work. LOVE it.
A great first book in the Dakota Treasures series! If you like the wild west, you will enjoy the story of two sisters who travel from the security of their wealthy "foster" family in New York across the country to claim their inheritance from a dying father they have not been in contact with for many years. The people they meet in Dakota are not at all what they expected. Should they stay and try to make it in this beautiful but wild place or return to the secure home they left behind? Maybe the handsome but somewhat awkward rancher can help Ruby and Opal decide. Regardless, Ruby realizes she must lean on a higher power for help.
I love Historical Inspirational Fiction. If you like this genre you are in for a treat. In this book ruby travels from New York City where she lived an easy life in the wealth of society. She went to work and live with a wealthy family after her grandmother passed away. Her father who had abandoned her years earlier had sent for her on his dying bed. When she reached in the Dakota territory to find her dad dying her life began to change. Ruby a strong woman and caretaker of the other weeker women in the story.
This is a wonderful book! I am so glad it is only Book #1 of this series of Books. I stayed up all night to finish reading it. I have now requested the other three. I can hardly wait for them to arrive! These stories take place in Dakota Territory about the same time my grandfather's family was there. It is so fascinating to read about life in that era, especially when you consider how rapidly life has changed since that time.
In 1882 two young ladies recive a note from thier father... they think they inherited a nice hotel, think again. So off to the west they go. It is a book that is worth reding again.
Love this book. She turned that place around for the best!
This book was a slow read for me. It didn't grab my attention as other triology books have. This was also my first time reading a book written by Lauraine Snelling.
I stopped reading at chapter 9. Not thrilled with my first Lauraine Snelling book. Also, that building on the cover? Yeah, it's a brothel. Lovely, right? *sarcasm* So even to chapter 9 there's a lot of mentions of what goes on, "working girls", gambling, saloons, drinking, staring at a girl to see if she could work, etc. Not happy. Not happy at all.
Highly recommended read!
Enjoyed this book so much!!!!!
I really liked the sisters and the manner in which the author portrayed them as proper ladies. When they were thrust into ownership of a brothel in the middle of nowhere, it was almost comical as to the naivete of Ruby. I really wanted her to get hooked up with Rand but the author just stopped the book. I felt like I was in the middle of a sentence and then it ended. Hoping to pick up the story in the continuation of the series.
COME WEST YOUNG WOMEN? AND RUBY DOES! WITH HER SISTER OPAL. AND WHAT AN ADVENTURE!
GOOD READ...GET ALL 4
The First in a new series and just a really good book. If you enjoy Christian fiction, you will enjoy this one!
Interesting romance/ historical fiction.

But instead of the treasure they expected, the sisters discover something most shocking. Ruby's bold determination in the face of scandal is the only way to redeem her father's legacy. Does she have it in her?
