AMAZING NOVELS THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO A DIFFERENT TIME

1. These is My Words by Nancy TurnerArizona Territories, 1880s

Based on the author’s own family history, this novel tells the story of Sarah Agnes Prine, whom we first see as a 17 year old traveling with her family through the Arizona Territories. Over the course of the book we see her fight to defend her family from Indians, struggle through the hardships of living on the frontier, teach herself to read, fall in love, and become an incredible, tenacious mother. The book is absolutely riveting, not to mention one of the best love stories I’ve ever read, so don’t pick it up unless you can clear your schedule. And yes, it’s going to make you cry, but it’s entirely worth it!
