Don't let the title sway you. Don't let the odd way of writing (especially the first few pages) sway you. Don't let the harsh stuff that happens sway you. This is an amazing book. Sarah Prine is an inspiring, tough woman living in the old west. The best part? Watching her learn and grow and become an even better version of herself as she experiences the world around her. This story will stay with you long after you read it.
