Young Adult | Historical
I love the west and thought this would be a delightful read. Unfortunately, this was more like an advertisement. It feels safe to say that the author has a great love for Yellowstone National Park. The detail and amount of time spent on that subject are a bit too much. Compounding the problem is a girl who is very bratty. She feels the world revolves around her and isn't afraid to demand her own family to live up to her expectations no matter the sacrifice. After all their sacrifice is of little concern to herself. She is the type that charges forward without a thought and will be in a pickle before long. I got to the point where I didn't care if she entangled herself in an unhappy marriage. If you are consistently going to be dumb it is about time to pay the consequences. So obviously I gave up on this read.
