reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5a fun readApril 5, 2022reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleI love reading Francine River's books and this one was a breeze to read through. It help my attention from the beginning.
I loved Kathryn. She was impetuous and determined and willing to give people a chance. She also was determined to tell it like it is and would willingly walk into disastrous situations with boldness, though fear was present at times.
Of course, there was a hero too, and at first glimpse, he seems an unlikely hero. He's a bit cocky, over confident and free with his words and actions, but there was redemption in his story as well.
If you put these two personalities together, you can imagine the fights that resulted. It made for interesting reading even if it didn't feel too terribly realistic. I raced through the book, reading it in about four days, but it was one of those books I would pick up and read again.
The book was fairly predictable and the ending was pretty much exactly what you expected, but it the action and conversations along the way were fun to read.
I received this book from Tyndale via NetGalley and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed were my own.
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMMarch 22, 2022FitzysmomI was so excited when Francine River's newest book came out. I put it on my Kindle as soon as possible. But I found myself putting off reading it. While I have loved each and every book that she has written they usually contain serious and even heavy emotional material.
I don't know about you, but at our house it's been a long two years and I just wasn't in the frame of mind to read something heavy. Then one day I read a blog post by Francine Rivers about The Lady's Mine. In the post she talks about all of us coming out of a heavy season and her desire to write something lighter that we could all find enjoyment in.
With that information I decided to take a chance and give it a read. I'm so glad I did. It was a delightful story about a rugged man and a feisty woman who find themselves at odds about most things but also drawn together about the important things. The title is a clever double meaning and it was just the escape that I needed. If you enjoy a good historical romance give this one a shot.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

GramsAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Deep ThemeMarch 10, 2022GramsAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Exiled by her stepfather to Calvada, California, Kathryn Walsh, Boston born and bred, has to decide if she is going to flee the odorous, lawless, male-dominated mining town or embrace whatever God has for her there. An outspoken advocate for justice and women's rights, that being what brought about her exile, seeing a man punched, dumped into a horse trough, and then shoved up and down in the water moments after she arrived may have spoken to her sense of justice and contributed to Kathryn's decision to stay. Matthias Beck, saloon and hotel owner as well as the man meting out the punches and dunking, is inspired by Kathryn's spunk as she takes over her deceased uncle's newspaper, but worries about her as she also takes on the town's richest resident, some local merchants, and a group of disgruntled minors.
In The Lady's Mine Francine Rivers explores the themes of making a difference in one's community, something as relevant today as it was in an 1870s silver mining community. Related themes of putting others first, and following one's conscience are also still quite relevant to today's society, and something we should embrace. I really enjoyed Kathryn and Matthias' story and the way that the author explored these deep themes. I highly recommend The Lady's Mine to fans of historical fiction as well as this author who never disappoints.
I am grateful to have received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers via NetGalley without obligation. All opinions expressed here are my own.
