Reviews - What do customers think about The Gallant Outlaw: 1890 (The House of Winslow #15)?
Great story with romance and adventure Sep 6, 2006
This was the first House of Winslow book I ever read, purchased from a mail-order book club unaware that it was part of a series; up until then I had only read 2 books in the Cheney Duvall, MD series by Mr. Morris and his daughter.
Like with many adventure and mystery stories, some parts of the book get a little tedious and you want the story to move along, but I enjoyed the story otherwise.
Note: This is one of several instances where Mr. Morris reuses the same plot (or subplot) more than once. Betsy is tricked into believing she's married to Vic when the phony preacher promises to fill out the license paperwork and mail it to them later; in #7 The Reluctant Bridegroom, Rebekah finds out her husband already has a wife (and later marries Sky Winslow); and in #19 The Iron Lady, Rebekah and Sky's granddaughter Priscilla makes the exact same mistake! But if you don't mind repetitive plots, you won't mind those similarities.
Another thrilling House of Winslow book! Aug 3, 2000
Lanie sets out to with one mission: To find her sister and rescue her from a man that they had once trusted. But, Lanie never expected to find love in the process. And that's exactly what happens, even though it takes her and Lobo a bit of time to realize it. She still so worried about her sister that she doesn't think she has time to worry about herself and her well being. Go with her through a rough territory and dangerous journey. I found this book adventurous and exciting with a wonderful plot set in the late 19th century!
