Who doesn’t enjoy reading about the early West? Especial those of us who live in an area resplendent with reminders of “the way it was.”
Fernley Author Mary Jean Kelso makes the time period come alive with her tales of how everyday life might have been during the nation’s formative years.
This book, Annabel’s Story, released by Wings Press July 1, 2012 tells the story of a young girl shipped west on an orphan train.
Annabel arrives as a girl named Mabel. With a name change she relives her past and moves toward an uncertain future. Young and struggling to survive, she carries a secret that even she doesn’t know.
“Kelso has woven so many wonderful elements into this story: details of the American Frontier, well developed characters, an engaging plot, sweet romance, and a young woman's desire to find the kind of life she isn't sure she will ever have.” Quoted from The Book Connection. Review by Cheryl C. Malandrinos.
