Review of Beneath a Prairie Moon: Historical Christian Fiction by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Beneath a Prairie Moon is historical fiction set during one of my favorite historical time periods- the days of the Old West, when cowboys sent back East for mail order brides. Although this one was a simple, good read, I thought it dragged on a little. But the setting and characters were interesting. And if you love the time period and are looking for a simple read, not too deep, this one may take your fancy.

About the Book

From the Amazon description…Abigail Brantley grew up in affluence and knows exactly how to behave in high society. But when she is cast from the social registers due to her father’s illegal dealings, she finds herself forced into a role she never imagined: tutoring rough Kansas ranchers in the subjects of manners and morals so they can “marry up” with their mail-order brides. Mack Cleveland, whose father was swindled by a mail-order bride, wants no part of the scheme to bring Eastern women to Spiveyville, Kansas, and he’s put off by the snooty airs and fastidious behavior of the “little city gal” in their midst. But as time goes by, his heart goes out to the teacher who tries so diligently to smooth the rough edges from the down-to-earth men. How can he teach her that perfection won’t bring happiness?

My Thoughts

The story idea is an interesting one and one that hasn’t been overdone in this genre. The character of Mack was pretty likable, but I found Abigail to be too annoying. Yes, that’s part of her character’s personality, but it was done to such an extent that I was annoyed with her.
I really like a story told from multiple perspectives. This book- as well as others I’ve read from the author- does that. It makes the story more interesting to me, and it helps me to see the characters through the eyes of others- which made me a little more compassionate toward annoying Abigail.
