Nice historical from Wanda E. Brunstetter.

I've only read Wanda E. Brunstetter's contemporary Amish stories before, so a historical with a Quaker heroine sounded interesting. Toss in the Lapwai Mission which, was close enough that I learned about it during my school years, and my attention was caught. I also liked how Woman Of Courage features some rather little-known history, unless you live in the Northwest, including the Spaldings, the mission, Indian traditions, and quite a bit more.

This story populated with varied characters and filled with rich scenery. Amanda's journey encompasses many miles of travel by foot and by horse and also the Lapwai Mission area itself. Through dangers and heartbreak, Amanda and her friend Mary face things they never expected.
Amanda's faith never seems to waiver even when faced with the most trying of circumstances, and ever so slowly Buck begins to open himself little by little to that faith and to Amanda herself. I have to admit, though, that my absolute favorite character in this book was Thunder. He is protective and very loyal to his friends.

I think another thing that caught my attention is the lovely cover. It teases the reader's imagination and hints at the exciting story within.

A story of discovery, faith, loyalty, sacrifice, and love that transcends cultures. If you love Wanda E. Brunstetter or historicals or both, Woman Of Courage just might be a good pick.

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher through TBCN in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are entirely my own.)
