Title: A Woman of Courage (Collector’s Edition)
Author: Wanda Brunstetter
Publisher: Shiloh Run Press
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
Amanda Pearson is the main character in this story, and her faith is about to undergo many hardships and trials. Originally, she sets out with her father and a guide on a very long journey to reach the Spaldings who are reaching an Indian tribe with the Gospel. From tragedy to tragedy, this woman continues depending on the Lord to provide for her and lead her to the mission.
During Amanda’s travels, she not only endures the hardships but thrives! Her eyes are opened to a brand-new world and various people, both those who are open to her message and others who are more nefarious in their dealings. Amanda is a woman who lives out her faith before others. She makes attempts to understand the ways of the various tribes and mountain men she meets. Her character is what makes a path to some hearts to hear of the God she loves.
At the end of the book is included a story about another woman of courage named Little Fawn and her desire to emulate her mother in sharing the Word of God with others. However, she also has the impulsive and naïve personality traits that get her into a situation that could turn deadly at any moment.
I enjoyed reading the stories going back to the 1800s set in the vast wilderness. While I am not sure how much of the various tribal life and beliefs are founded on research, they were very intriguing nonetheless. The book was a great way to sit and just become enthralled with the action, adventure and danger along with victories and defeat in the lives of the main female characters.
With the season of giving coming, this is one book to consider giving and sharing with readers be they family or friends.
