That Woman: Beating the odds in colonial New York by Wayne Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wayne Clark writes an inspirational historical novel in his book, That Woman: Beating the odds in colonial New York. With a strong female protagonist Sarah, Clark quickly immerses the reader into France in the year 1748. Sarah, her father, and younger brother have gone down to the docks to finalize some business dealings her father has. Unfortunately, both children are soon kidnapped and begin a harrowing journey. Bound for New York and sold as an indentured servant, Sarah must come to grips with her new reality, and do anything she can for her freedom and survival. Well written with a compelling and touching story, Clark gives Sarah's character the strength to forbear and survive dire circumstances. A highly readable, riveting, page-turner with a strong plot and exquisite use of language, this is a highly recommended historical fiction book that will entertain until the strong ending.
