by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Wanda E. Brunstetter in her book, Woman of Courage, has crafted quite a story taking us back to the unsettled west. With the descriptions of the trail guides, forts, and Indian villages you will feel like you've stepped back in time.
Let me just say, this book was not a fluffy book in any way. You will feel the heartbreak with each tragedy as you begin to realize just how dangerous the west really was, Death can come fast in the wilderness and it shocks you who it claims. Knowing that, safety and being aware of their surroundings, was at the forefront of their mind at all times. It's when they let down their guard thing begin to happen.
Amanda was my favorite character as she never let up on preaching the gospel with the hopes of bringing everyone she meets to God. I think I would have buckled under the pressure of people who didn't want to hear but she had the courage and the love to never gave up.
It was a great, great read
