Book Overview

From the bestselling author of These Is My Words comes this exhilarating follow-up to the beloved Sarah's Quilt. In the latest diary entries of pioneer woman Sarah Agnes Prine, Nancy E. Turner continues Sarah's extraordinary story as she struggles to make a home in the Arizona Territory.

It is winter 1906, and nearing bankruptcy after surviving drought, storms, and the rustling of her cattle, Sarah remains a stalwart pillar to her extended family. Then a stagecoach accident puts in her path three strangers who will change her life.

In sickness and in health, neighbor Udell Hanna remains a trusted friend, pressing for Sarah to marry. When he reveals a plan to grant Sarah her dearest wish, she is overwhelmed with passion and excitement. She soon discovers, however, that there is more to a formal education than she bargained for.
Behind the scenes, Sarah's old friend Maldonado has struck a deal with the very men who will become linchpins of the Mexican Revolution. Maldonado plots to coerce Sarah into partnership, but when she refuses, he devises a murderous plan to gain her land for building a railroad straight to Mexico. When Sarah's son Charlie unexpectedly returns from town with a new bride, the plot turns into an all-out range war between the two families.

Finally putting an end to Udell's constant kindnesses, Sarah Read More chevron_right

   Couldn't put it down
The last one is the Star Garden. I read the first one, These is my words, and struggled to get through it, the second, Sarah's Quilt, and the third, The Star garden, I couldn't put it down. I loved all three of them after I finished the third one and went back and read the first one. Losing children and husbands, traveling across rough land in wagons and by horse, and the hard work without the conveniences we are spoiled with are things frontier women went through. If our ancestors hadn't shown the feisty spirit of Sarah Prine, we wouldn't be here. This book is for people who like frontier stories with a little romance.
   a good read
I have not read this book in a long time. I remember that there was a series of three and I ordered all of them. I like books about women in history and this series is one of the best. When you finish a book you want to know what happened next.
   A worthy sequel
I wanted to read the next two books, Sarah's Quilt and The Star Garden, after I finished These Is My Words. I enjoyed both of them as much as the first book. It's all there. Sarah and her family will stay with me. All three books will remain on my bookshelf.
The first chapter tugged at my heartstrings. My maternal grandparents were born in Texas in 1903 and 1906, and my son is 85 miles south of us in San Angelo. I know these characters because of the similarities of the timelines and locale. My friends are them. They' re my neighbors. It was a beautiful ride through my family's history.
   Great story but formatting issues make it hard to read
I liked this series. I couldn't put it down. The final book had so many formatting errors that it was difficult to figure out what the book was saying. There was only a partial sentence. Many of the conversations lacked paragraph breaks so you couldn't tell who was talking. The word " eyes" was italicized all the time. The words seem to be randomly italicized. I hated to keep stumbling over the issues and falling out of the fiction of the story. I would give this book 5 stars for the story, but the formatting issues take away some of the enjoyment.
   A Beautiful Series!
I loved this series. These Is My Words, Sarah's Quilt and The Star Garden are wonderful books. Sarah Prine and her family were something I would have liked to meet. You are wrapped up in the author's love, their pain and their sorrows. Don't pass these books up if you like historical western fiction. The characters from the books will be with you for a long time.
Turner has a trilogy of books about Sarah Prine. The first thing to do is to start with these is my words and the second is Sarah's Quickie. When I told the members of my book discussion group that I wanted them to read the first book, I couldn't believe how engaged I was in the lives of fictional characters. I would love to introduce these books as extra credit choices in my high school English classes. Fantastic!
