Beneath a Prairie Moon by Kim Vogel Sawyer

The Book ✯✯✯✯

Sweet and sassy, Beneath a Prairie Moon is a fantastic summer read. If you enjoy clean Christian romances set in the Hallmark version of the Wild West, pick this up.

Sawyer transports us to the prairies of Kansas where the good, but highly uneducated men of a small town reside. While set as a Mail-Order-Bride romance, there is a twist. Abagail isn't a bride, instead, she is sent as a tutor to prepare the men of Kansas for the brides being sent to them. She is pompous and proud because those are the last things remaining from her shattered life in high society. Mack is just a dear. So much so, that I honestly wasn't sure I wanted the obvious pairing to happen.

But Sawyer worked her magic, and I came away loving each character and the arch they were given. The big baddie didn't really seem like the right villain, and he came a bit out of left field, but it still added the traditional danger and drama we've come to expect from Westerns.

Overall, while a bit too long for the story it wanted to tell, this novel is as sassy as manners allow and as sweet as any love story.

Thank you to NetGalley, Kim Vogel Sawyer, and WaterBrook & Multnomah for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  2. I really appreciate how the author wrote the female as educated. We don't see that enough in historical books.

  3. Alas, long can be one of my deal breakers. I just have a hard time fitting long books into my schedule.

    1. It wasn't an incredibly long book, just a bit longer than it really needed to be in my opinion.

    1. Thank you! All genres need book bloggers, it's a good thing we run in the same circle but with different tastes.
