#BookReview: Spirit Dancer by @cissy_hunt

 
The story of how a woman's faith and trust in God grew out of hardship and tragedy in the early 1800's.
Hannah, at only seventeen, has been married only a few months when her new husband Caswell announced to her they would be traveling west to work with his uncle.
Hannah hated the idea of leaving her family, her home and all she knew to travel with a wagon train west.
While with the wagon train, they endured sever storms, livestock stampedes and death. But one of the worst things the young couple had to face was being left behind by the wagon train, when Caswell appears to have come down with a contagious disease.
Follow Hannah's adventure through hardship, and tragedy as she travels the wilds of the western wilderness
 





I grew up, attended school, and spent my young adult life around and in central Louisiana. I have been a Licensed Practical Nurse for over thirty-five years, during part of that time I was a travel nurse. Now I live with my husband in Northwest Arkansas in the beautiful Ozark Mountains with our little Pomeranian dogs and two cats. We live out of town in the country, where I fell in love with the peace and beauty of the area. We live a simple life in that we love to night fish and work in our yard. I have been an ordained minister since August of 2007. I am called to minister to hurting women who carry the emotional scars of domestic abuse. For as long as I can remember I have always loved to write. Growing up a shy person, when I couldn't express myself verbally, one only had to hand me a pen and paper and out would flow my thoughts.


This was an interesting book and reminded me of the old game The Oregon Trail. This one, however, speaks of a simple time with faith and love. It had its hardships and its saves and it was a very good book. The author did a wonderful job making the story flow from one time to another and the pacing was well thought out. The characters in this one were wonderful and you couldn't help feeling for them in their situations. This is a book based heavily on faith and will appeal to those of Christan backgrounds.
