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!
