Description

A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon - from child to determined young adult to loving mother - she shares the turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that molded her, and recalls the enduring love with cavalry officer Captain Jack Elliot that gave her strength and purpose.

Rich in authentic everyday details and alive with truly unforgettable characters, These Is My Words brilliantly brings a vanished world to breathtaking life again.

Amazing Epic Pioneering Woman Story

The kind of book that you miss for days after its concluded. Such adventure and celebration of the good things in life despite circumstances.

Loved it

This was a well written book. It was traumatic but real and you laugh and cry. It is a good historical fiction.

Worst Narration I've Encountered in a Long Time

Would you try another book from Nancy E. Turner and/or Amy Rubinate?

I will definitely read another book by Nancy E. Turner. I will never purchase another book narrated by Amy Rubinate.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's voice was quite slow, with a strong nasal sound, combined with a somewhat forced accent at times. It was very distracting from the story, and made it quite difficult to get through the book.

Any additional comments?

I will never purchase another book with this narrator.

Good story

Strong pioneer woman, I'm going to miss her :) sorry to finish the book after years of 'struggles with Sarah.'

A story of the Wild West

This was a great historical fiction novel about The struggles of life in the 1800s as people moved to the Western part of the United States in a wagon-train. Sarah and her family moved to set up their home. She lived a life full of struggles and hardships. It was a realistic depiction of how life could have been in the wild west. Sarah's journal tells about the wonderful loving relationship between herself and Capt. Jack Elliott. Sarah had many ups and downs and throughout all of her trials and tribulations she manages to come through it all to the other side still determined and willing to live another day.

Terrible narration

I really wanted to listen to this book but I tried and stopped three different times because the narration was so terrible to listen to.

Outstanding historical novel

I cannot wait to see the movie production of this book. Unfortunately, movies are never as good as the books.

Wonderful

A great story of strength and perseverance, with a wholesome twist. Not a romance story but a sturdy story with a breathtaking romance. The truth from inside that great love and I felt proud to see Sarah grow from strength to strength!

Inspiring, delightful and emotional

I love the perspective of a different time and a different life. Sarah is strong, amazing and inspiring and I fell in love with her spirit. It was fun to hear all the familiar landmarks of my Tucson surroundings. I also enjoyed the narration by Amy Rubinate which makes the whole experience much better.
