150th Blog Post! Review of A Claim of Her Own by Stephanie Grace Whitson

As I got ready to start this post, I noticed that it was my 150th since beginning my blog. Hard to believe! For this post I want to do a review of a book I read several months ago by Stephanie Grace Whitson. I had already read her contemporary series set in Paris (A Garden in Paris) and Italy (A Hilltop in Tuscany) ,and loved both of them!

While A Claim of Her Own is a historical, it still has the superb writing style that attracted me in Mrs. Whitson's other books. The author is a master of characterization, description of both people and setting, all with a spiritual message that is not contrived or forced. This book chronicles the perilous journey of Mattie O'Keefe as she travels to Deadwood, South Dakota seeking her brother. It also tells of her spiritual journey as she searches for gold, but finds true treasure instead. I highly recommend this book and all other books by this author. You can check out more about her and her other books at www.stephaniewhitson.com

Wow, that's a lot of posts to celebrate, Rose. Congratulations!

Thank you in advance for reading and reviewing Life in Defiance for the blog tour this week. I really appreciate it! I'm going to be out of town for a few days, so I thought I would say thank you early!

With joy and thanks,
