First of all, does she not know how to use quotation marks?! That was very disturbing at the beginning. Then I just decided she never learned to use them properly. This was cause for th
...e writing to sometimes explain exactly who was speaking and of whom.There were ample descriptions, sometimes, way beyond what was necessary. Yes, it helped to paint the picture, but was ALL that detail needed every single time?And what happened to Talmadge's sister? I was waiting to hear how that was going to be resolved, but it never was. Was she captured by Michaelson? I was sure that was what happened. But the reader is left wondering. Or maybe she was going turn up in Chelan. Would they even recognize each other 40-50 years later? Why was it always Caroline Middey? Why was her last name always included? It isn't like there was another Caroline in the story.Perhaps that was the way it was during that time period, but could it have been a better story if he had been younger when the two girls came. That long ago people didn't always live that long, and I was afraid he was going to die at a much younger age than he did, leaving poor Angelene in whose care? Even then, it was sad to have him die when Angelene was so young. This book was recommended by two friends, whose opinions I value. I will have to find out what captivated them about this story.MoreLess
