“Woman of Courage” by Wanda Brunstetter, book review
After being left at the alter, Amanda and her father set out for the Nez Pierce Indian tribe to work at the Quaker mission. But the trip proves to be to much for her father, who dies from a heart attack near the beginning. And her guide is tragically killed by a falling tree during a storm. Amanda quickly finds herself alone in the wilderness with few provisions and no guide.
God provides Buck, a mountain man, to guide her to the home of Jake and Mary, who nurse her to health. Amanda holds out hope that someone, maybe Buck, will take her to the Indian mission as soon as the weather permits. She encounters many of the hardships of wilderness living including bear attacks, illness, and weather. But God is faithful and protects her.
This is a fascinating book of adventure and courage. There is a fair amount of heart ache, but also forgiveness. I enjoyed the story and hope that there is a continuation of the story.
