Happy #PubDay + Women 2020 (1/7/20)

WESTERING WOMEN by Sandra Dallas

“Dallas (THE BRIDE’S HOUSE) has written an engaging historical fiction about the strength of women in times of adversity. Though the women were all intended to be brides, we see each as much more than her connection to a man—a unique perspective in the 1850s. Purchase where women’s and historical fiction is popular.”–Library Journal
