Tale of Two Sisters Jun 7, 2005
Jesselynn and Louisa continue their quest to survive the indignaties of the Civil War...Jesselynn decides to head towards Oregon in an effort to save the last few horses from her Kentucky home in the hopes of returning after the war is done to rebuild her family's horse farm. Louisa forges ahead with opening her home to wounded soldiers.
Jesse joins a wagon train headed west guided by Wolf Torgestad, half Norwegian and half Sioux. To gather enough supplies to be allowed to join the wagon train, Jesse had to race Ahab, hoping to win the purse of gold, but if she lost, she forfeited Ahab.
Louisa struggles to find her place in helping with the war effort...knitting socks and rolling bandages just doesn't seem enough....but finding the medicines to ease their suffering is...but it means going North and smuggling them back at the risk of her life.
I have read all three books in this series, this was my favorite...that being said, there are some big flaws in these books, the continuity is uneven and rough at times. One page Meshach is riding Ahab, the next paragraph has Jesse riding him with no switch possible...often Ms. Snelling uses the same exact phrases over and over...as Lousia writes her letters, she invariably must blot a tear before it runs the ink, and finally after pages of minute detail you hurtle through big life changing events in two pages...maybe some more editing was needed? But the stories are good enough to brush aside these rough spots. I've read other books by Ms. Snelling and will look for future works...
Where is the third sequel? Aug 19, 2003
WOW! What an awesome story! Since I did not read the first book, I was a little confused the first two chapters. After that I couldnot put the book down. I read it in one day. When it ended I was so let down because it has gone into so much detail, then boom, it's over, without a really true ending. A love story cannot just end there! Please tell me there is another book to end this sequel!?
Great Series Nov 5, 2000
Lauraine Snelling is a great writer. The first book was great. I haven't read the second one yet, but I am going to buy it soon. I'm sure that it's just as good as the first one.
