These Is My Words by Nancy E. Turner is a vivid story of love, adventure, and a woman's courage with a historical backdrop in the Arizona Territory of the late 1800s.
I will be honest and say that I was not sold on this book within the first 10 pages, but I am glad that I continued past those first few dry pages. It was well worth it.
Sarah Prine preserves her life in a diary, recording all of her uncensored thoughts... silly, naive, rash, raw, yet authentic emotions... deepest secret hopes and desires as a daughter, a mother, and a wife... greatest and most simple joys in life... characteristics of her husband and children... and her biggest dreams.
I laughed. I huffed in anger. I cried. I stopped and thought about my own naive decisions throughout my life. I hugged my children and Andy as I told them how much I love them. I thanked God for my wonderful life.
Any book that makes you reflect on your blessings and what brought you to your current place in life is a book well worth reading in my opinion.
