THE LADY'S MAID by Susan Page Davis
The was an enjoyable read for me but not a book that kept me glued to the page, waiting to see what happens next. It is about two British ladies, Elise and her British mistress, Lady Anne Stone. They set off to America to find Lady Anne's Uncle so he can claim his inheritance and find themselves joining a wagon train west to Oregon. They of course know nothing about joining a wagon train and the scout, Eb Bentley, is disgusted with them for wanting to join. But these "ladies" soon tackle whatever they need to to make it own their own and gain the admiration of Eb. There is someone though who is following them and hoping they don't make it to Oregon. Eb ends up doing his best to protect them and see they arrive safely.
This was a story filled with adventure and romance, but also determination to do what needs to be done and not giving up. I admire these two ladies abilities to leave their "prim and proper" ways behind them, but at the same time remain true "ladies".
Thanks goes to Barbour Publishing via NetGalley for sending me this book to review.
