Book Review - Woman of Courage

This is the first book I've read by Wanda Bunstetter, and I was shocked to realize that she has written over 60 books. Woman of Courage is a well-written historical fiction novel about a woman travelling from New York, across the Rockies to be a missionary to the Nez Perce Indians in 1837.  I enjoyed the character development and the settings - I was able to feel a part of the story as the characters travelled.  I enjoyed the many lessons on courage, as the 4 main characters wrestled with danger, forgiveness and the courage to love.  I enjoyed watching relationships grow and develop. I enjoyed learning more about the similarities and differences among different cultures.  I did not particularly enjoy the "thees and thous" in the beginning of the book, so I was glad to see the main character start dialoguing in a more familiar manner.

I would recommend this book to any reader that's looking for a light-hearted Christian book to read.  It's appropriate for ages 15+.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
