The Heroine is Beyond the Pale!

by jjares on Jan 26, 2013

FRONTIER WOMAN, the beginning of the ?Sisters of the Lone Star,? was a disappointment; Cricket seemed beyond ?wild!? Frankly, I had a problem understanding why Jarrett Creed would put up with such bizarre behavior. At first, I was impressed with Jarrett?s compassion and understanding of Cricket. By of the book, however, I wondered about his sanity. However, the whole Comanche raiding party scene (plus Cricket and Amy), was beyond the pale! It happened because of Cricket?s complete abandonment of logical behavior. At least Tom had the sense to blame her; however, Cricket was up to her old tricks before long. (If it had been me, I would have gone to my grave regretting my stupidity that harmed an innocent person.) I could understand Rip Stewart raising his 3 daughters with the survival skills of men. I also understood the girls? lack of feminine behaviors, since their mother was deceased. However, there seem to be no sense of self-control in either Sloan or Cricket. I found little to admire in either woman. I?ve enjoyed other books by Joan Johnston; this one left me unsettled. It seemed as if every plot device had been used in this story, the whole thing seemed over-blown and ponderous. Sisters of the Lone Star 1. Frontier Woman (1988) 2. Comanche Woman (1989) 3. Texas Woman (1989)

Johnston is a great writer

by meemaw on Oct 21, 2010

I am now a big fan of Joan Johnston. I love the way she takes you back in time and the way so may of her books connect with one another. The women she writes about are strong to be able to go through so much. If you love reading about the old west her books are really good
