Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a lovely book. Brilliant writing; fascinating reading. I read very slowly, savouring every word and action and I hope when the inevitable film is made that Hollywood leave Nina Vida's truly observed characters alone as ordinary people doing extraordinary things. I hope the filmmakers use real people for this great story, not Hollywood clone-heroes with gleaming teeth and shining hair, all handsome and unreal in the tough view of early Texas Vida shows with such skill.

Every character is so wonderfully believable and I loved how they developed during the story. Katrin, so weepy and wet at the beginning, becomes a truly strong frontierswoman able to turn her hand and brain to anything, without her pre-occupied husband Joseph really noticing until the end. I feel she is the defining personality of this story and thought it so clever that the author leaves Joseph until the very end to realise how vital she is in his life and how - in his own selfish way - finds that he probably loves her and cannnot really do without her quiet skills.

I found one intriguing point that none of the Magazine Reviews I saw, mentioned - the absolute lack of this new and awful political correctness that abounds in America. Vida defied current convention in showing the historical truth, that Indians were generally cruel stone-age barbarians and pretty much target practice for the settlers and that not all Texas Rangers were warm and wonderful human beings committed to law and order and acting in such a way Hollywood could always cast them as the goodies.
