I just love Nancy E. Turner's writing. Her books are well written but her strength is writing a narrative with the protagonist's voice. Like her previous books, this is historical fiction that continues the story of a previous protagonist except this is her niece. I don't know how she comes up with the storylines but they are realistic and very well written. I accidentally picked up These Is My Words years ago and was immediately swallowed whole. The writing style and character development immediately enveloped me. The same is true for this book. Like her previous books, the story isn't told or developed. It is revealed. This could be my ancestor, that's how believable the story is. My only criticism is that I wish that Nancy Turner wrote books as fast as I read them. However, they are too consuming for me so it's good he doesn't.
