I’m not really sure what my feelings are about this series. The Dakotah Treasures Series wasn’t terrible by any means, but I only finished two of the four books. I think it had something to do with Ruby. The first book in the series follows her and she reminded me of Mattie Ross from True Grit (whose refusal to use contractions throughout the movie killed me). The story takes place in an era where the definition of what it meant to be a proper lady would have had me screaming and running out far into the west.
But overall, I can’t say I wasted my time because I did want to know what happened with Ruby and Rand (SPOILER ALERT: which of course they ended up together because if they didn’t that would be the worse book ever and I would have been really sad).
I think Lauraine Snelling is a great writer and I look forward to reading her other books (there’s a series about the West called Valley of Dreams that looks quite good)! I just can’t read them if the main character is like Mattie (I know, I have strange ways sometimes).
