Book Review - Emmy's Equal

 Emmy's Equal (Texas Fortunes, Book No. 3) by Marcia Gruver

Marcia Gruver lists herself as an Author of Factual Fiction. She "tends to weigh in occasionally on eternally significant issues, and her true passion is Christian fiction."

Emmy's Equal, the third of her "Texas Fortunes" trilogy, set in 1906 Texas, meets these criteria with a subtitle of: "A strong-willed city girl meets her match in a stubborn vaquero."

This book has a great story with significant interplay of the different cultures. It takes some getting used to early in the book, but overall is well laid out and satisfying.

It was easy to imagine the South Texas setting and people living there. The story about the wild horse and what happened to him was especially fascinating.

Each of the characters goes through their individual twists and turns of the plot lines, but everything comes together well in the final chapters and no one is left hanging.

If you like historical fiction, I predict you will enjoy this good read!  ;-)

See my next post for a Book Giveaway of this book.

Happy Reading! ;-)
