Sarah Glory by Christina Starr

12 Nov

Sarah Glorchester is a young golden-haired beauty who can out-hunt and out-shoot any man. As a child, she earns the nickname Sarah Glory. As a woman, she fulfills its promise. Seeking adventure and fortune in the booming Western frontier, Sarah and her beloved father join a caravan bound for the gold mines of California. Tragedy strikes quickly and Sarah must use her skills and wits to survive.

Quick pace with lots of dialogue. Short chapters, short sentences make for a very straight-forward plot. There is not much character development. Side characters are interesting but one-dimensional. Point of view skips-almost at random. Background is minimal-the overall feel of the West and the hardships pioneers faced provides a constant feeling of ill-will. Storyline is exterior and action oriented-details are left out. 2002, 182 pages.
