Book Description: Take a three-thousand mile journey with Amanda Pearson as she leaves the disgrace of a broken engagement and enters the work of a Quaker mission in the western wilds. The trip is fraught with danger, and Amanda is near death before reaching her destination. Among those she meets are an Indian woman who becomes her first convert and a half-Indian trapper who seems to be her biggest critic. But love follows her into the wilderness and will determine the course of her future.
My Thoughts: Wanda Brunstetter has become another favorite author of mine. In this book, Woman of Courage, we meet a young lady Amanda who feels that her broken engagement is a disgrace upon her and her family. Not having many job choices Amanda decides to go work at a Quaker mission in the West...the Wild West. What a journey! And what courage! Three thousand miles of mountains, traveling through unknown territory, Indians, and sleeping under the stars. (BC~Before Cellphones) Almost near death before she gets to her destination she begins a friendship with an Indian woman. Mary "Yellow Bird" and leads her to Christ. But then there's a pesky half-Indian trapper who just doesn't believe in what Amanda is preaching. Red Hawk is quite a guy too.
This is an interesting read . . . about the Quaker faith, and how we find determination within ourselves and trusting God when everything seems to be going downhill. Of course, there's romance too! Loved this read!
And this book is the Collector's Edition so included is Little Fawn's story. What fun!
