An unusual and compelling tale set in the wild west.,
By A Customer
This review is from: St Agnes' Stand (Penguin Readers (Graded Readers)) (Paperback)
This is the story of a woman's great faith in a hopeless siege situation, and the effect it had on those in her care, her attackers and a would be rescuer. It is well written and keeps you wanting to turn the page. It is however very violent, and the images stayed with me (but then I don't like violence). My other reservation is that the representation of American Indians is wholly negative. The story moved along fast, and the two main characters were likeable: overall a good read.
