How many will die before peace can return to the frontier?


My review:

I applaud Shannon McNear for being able to write about such a hard subject! I think she did a great job of keeping the more brutal aspects off the page. I’m not usually one to cry while reading, but I finished this with tears in my eyes.
That said, I really did enjoy the message of nothing being impossible for God. Also, about finding the light in the darkness. I really did enjoy the characters. Rachel and Ben were great. I really cared for Sally too. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Rachel and Ben.
I recommend you read this with a tissue on hand and a light-hearted book to read after. For fans of history and true crime, this is a good one to read. I in no way regret reading this. I will definitely plan on reading more by this author!


My rating:  5-Stars-300x57
