My Review

 

I enjoyed this book — a historical set in 1871. After a talk with her father Meghan moves to Kansas. She has a job to tutor/teach. The town is very uncivilized, a lot of fighting.
Meghan ends up having two men courting her. One is a doctor, and one is a cowboy. Who will she be giving her heart to? I wasn’t so crazy about the doctor but loved the cowboy.
I loved Olivia and Rosie. Olivia was the owner of the boardinghouse. Rosie is on a mission to change her life for the better.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit. This review is my own opinion.

More from Donna

Back in 2012, I wrote “Zorro” stories for Fan Fiction. I had an awful lot of fun with them, and people seemed to really like them. So, the thought came, what could I write for ‘real?’ I contemplated, prayed, and after a couple weeks or so, an idea came floating across my brain.

“Gunfight at Hyde Park.” Huh? I thought about it, and realized it was an obscure history lesson from my hometown in Kansas. I had Google it to get the details. I thought, well, I’m not gonna write a Christian romance novel just about a series of gunfights that killed and wounded more people than the OK Corral.

But I did think that the beginning of the gunfights could be the climax of the story.

Now, who should my heroine be? And the hero?

I started with that and took Christian Writer’s Guild’s Craftsman and the novel was completed in 2013—but only published in late 2017.

I’m proud of Meghan’s Choice. Pre-published it made the semi-finals of the last Operation 1st Novel that CWG held and placed in a couple of smaller contests. Last year, it made the finals of the prestigious Selah Awards for published books through the BRMCWC, and the finals of the Will Rogers Medallion Award.

My hope is that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it.

  3. I usually like non-fiction books, but reading about this interesting woman makes me want to know about her life. I will buy her this book once published. I guess I’m reading fiction books now. thanks for the recommendation.
