Valley of Dreams: A Book Review

About The Book:


Exciting New Series from Bestselling Author Lauraine Snelling

When Cassie Lockwood's mother died, Cassie began travelling with her father's Wild West Show. Along the way, she became an amazingly skillful trick rider and sharpshooter, likened by some to the famous Annie Oakley. When her father passed away, she continued to work with the show, having nowhere else to go.

Now Cassie has discovered that "Uncle" Jason, the show's manager, has driven the show into debt, and he's absconded with what little money was left. Devastated, Cassie decides to try to find the hidden valley in the Black Hills of South Dakota where her father had dreamed of setting down roots. She has only one clue. She needs to find three huge stones that look like fingers on a giant hand. With Chief, a Sioux Indian who's been with the act for twenty years, and Micah, the head wrangler, she leaves the show and a bundle of heartache behind and begins a wild and daring adventure.

Will they find the valley before winter closes in on them?

My Review:

Historical fiction is one of my favorite literature genres to read, and Lauraine Snelling is one of my favorite authors of this genre. Therefore, I was totally on board when the opportunity arose to review her most recent release, Valley Of Dreams! And it did not disappoint! 

Full of amazing descriptions of lifestyle, geography and more of the time of the Wild West, you will be drawn into the life of Cassie from the very first pages of the book. The characters are all fantastic and well-developed, each with their own experiences and journeys to take. The writing style flows nicely with a wonderful storyline, that will keep your interest through the reading of this book. I am definitely excited to see how book 2 of this series will be like!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
