Lady Anne is a pretty stong woman who knows her own mind in some ways for the mid's Where my grandmother was born a few years later not much I can actually see her in this more independent young lady ahead of her time in some ways Hard for me to believe it was only back that little bit as far as generations go in my lifetime Daniel seemed so much more of the strong silent type until you needed him to be the one that had to speak up and then he wasn't afraid to do so. He was a kind man in love with a young woman that he felt was above him and one that he didn't feel that loved him and he was so in love with her.
I felt bad for him through most of the first book of this series and parts of this book as well.. I am not going to go into the plot of this book as I don't like to give away the storyline of the books So I will leave this just stating this is a good book but not excellent however, I am fairly sure I will read the third and final book in this series just to complete this series as it was enjoyable just not one of my very favorites.
One person found this helpful. Join Anne and some of the other characters from book 1 as she continues to search for her Uncle David. This one was an enjoyable read, though I felt it was lagging in areas. Maybe more because I wanted Anne to find her uncle already. Once she did, I found the book moved more rapidly and became more of a page turner. Who is after Uncle David and why? You'll have to read book 3 to find out. So much fun watching these ladies adjust to the real world.
Really enjoyed reading the history from this time period as well. This is a new author for me.

Anne has made those who know her real identity keep it a secret because people had a tendency to treat her differently if they knew she was an heir to an estate in London and was considered a true Lady! But that doesn't stop Dan Adams from falling head over heels in love, even proposing to Anne along the wagon trail. But Anne can't fall in love with anyone until she can resolve her future and for now that means finding her uncle, no matter where it takes her or how long she must travel.
When Anne finds her Uncle's ranch, she is more than surprised to see he is not alone and not at all like the Uncle she remembers from her childhood. Long gone are his well-bred manners and English accent. He has gained considerable weight and has apparently married a woman named Millie. When she informs him of the deaths of his only brothers, he doesn't seem the least bit concerned and instead wants to know more about his inheritance. Anne soon realizes along with Dan that the man, she believed was her Uncle is not really him and soon learns it is a man her Uncle hired to watch over the ranch in his absence while he went mining for gold.
They call in the sheriff who has the man arrested but the woman, Millie flees on horseback. It seems Sam Hastings and his sister Millie are con-artists and have been hired to make sure that David Stone winds up dead and that Anne Stone doesn't find him. What could the connection be and who is behind it all? Will Anne find her Uncle before the Hastings do?
Can she save him in time? I thoroughly enjoyed this novel from start to finish. I couldn't imagine how a lady of proper upbringing could endure have to search for her uncle along a wagon trail and later on horse back during the worst types of weather imaginable while learning that she would need to depend on others to help her along the way from Dan Adams to a cast of lovable characters like the miner Whitey! This one is a must read for those who love a bit of historical elegance along the western trail!
I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read more in the Prairie Dreams series! This is the second book in the series and since I hadn't read the first one, I can honestly say it doesn't need to be read to understand where this one picks up. However, I can't wait to go back and see what I missed out on in the first book!
Feb 06, Misty rated it liked it. I SO wish I had gotten ahold of this manuscript before it got submitted to a publisher. I want to tell you it was a light, cute romantic mystery, but I can't. Maybe we could just blame the cover blurb for being misleading I found two main problems with Lady Anne's Quest. First, Davis spent half the novel characterizing the wrong people. Was I supposed to be sympathetic to the villians? I didn't want to get to know them. I didn't want their every move laid tried so hard to like this book.
Lady Anne's Quest (Prairie Dreams): Susan Page Davis: oxivecakyhub.ga: Books
I didn't want their every move laid out in front of me. This made the book so tedious and predictible, I didn't want to read to the end, and after a week of valiantly trying, I skipped the last 40 percent and scanned the last chapter. While spending so much precious word count on tedious descriptions of what the villians were doing, Davis failed, completely failed, to characterize the main characters. The ones who I was supposed to like. The ones who were supposed to be falling in love. I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt that the character descriptions were in the first book of the series, creatively titled, The Lady's Maid, great, now I'm getting sarcastic , a book I admitedly have not read.
In which case, this would just be like a really long Epilogue to that. And that doesn't have to be bad--I classified Enduring Light by Carla Kelly that way, and found it a delightful read.
But, needing to like the characters I'm reading about Anne was a clueless cold fish, and Dan was a big incompetent sissy--plus, Anne and Dan? Bleh , this book just did not do it for me. This sounds like such a terrible review of a book that had clean romance, great writing, and an intriguing premise.
But the romance was so clean it was boring, the writing so detailed and focused on the wrong things, the banter didn't ring true, the characters made a series of unwise choices when they were otherwise supposedly characterized as smart and capable, and the premise wasn't played out as interestingly as it could have been. I think other people might like this Laura , and I might have under different circumstances I had read and loved the first book, I had not expected to really like it, or maybe listened to a fantastic narrator read it on Audiobook or something.
It's not a terrible book, but it's not very Apr 01, Iola rated it really liked it Shelves: In the first book in this series, Lady Anne Stone left England with her maid and friend, Elise Finster, to travel to America in search for her Uncle David after the death of her father. Lady Anne's Quest opens shortly after th In the first book in this series, Lady Anne Stone left England with her maid and friend, Elise Finster, to travel to America in search for her Uncle David after the death of her father.
Lady Anne heads south from Eugene to Corvallis to search for her uncle, accompanied by Daniel Adams, who fell in love with her as hey journeyed across America in the wagon train. But the man they find claiming to be David Stone is an illiterate impostor, trying to claim an inheritance that is not his. Anne and Dan find that David owns a mining claim, so they continue to follow the trail.
But it soon becomes apparent that they are not the only people searching for David, and that the dangers they faced in their first journey are still following them. Normally, that wouldn't matter, except that Lady Anne's Quest jumped straight into the action, leaving me struggling to remember what was what and who was who. Overall, it was a solid historical suspense with a hint of romance as Anne gets to know Dan better.
I think I would have liked a bit more detail about the development of their relationship — I like the fact that it was build on friendship and respect, but I still would have liked a little more sizzle. The third book in the series, A Lady in the Making, is due to be published later this year, which is good because there is still a mystery to solve, and, as Jane Austen says, a single man in possession of a fortune must be in need of a wife Thanks to Barbour and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
This review also appears on my blog, www. Feb 20, Judy rated it it was amazing. Her father and Uncle John have died leaving the Earldom to David. She refuses to give up on finding him to take his rightful place rather than another relative. When they have to travel further yet only Daniel Adams goes with her. She really liked Dan as a friend but nothing more, after all he was going to be a farmer here while she would be returning to England.
Daniel had went with his brother Hector to their new land but he couldn't keep his mind off of Anne. Finally Hector sends him off to find her and see if there is any hope at all to gain her affections.
He travels with her to head where the latest rumor says her Uncle is. That he had bought a mine. They come upon all types of adventures as they travel along. Just about the time it looks like Anne might find her elusive Uncle David something else seems to come between them and send them in the wrong direction. I enjoyed both of these books in this series. Susan did a great job of bringing characters alive. There was Dan who was holding onto a small hope that he could win Anne, and I found myself hurting for him each time he wondered where his life would be if she never did come around.
Anne who had to hang on to each thread of hope even though it often looked like she might not find her Uncle alive. The villains that you wanted to see fail at their underhanded ways and the villain that you thought maybe had some good in them The third book in this series, A Lady in the Making, will be David's story and will be released in October. Aug 25, Ibjoy Hannabass rated it it was amazing. Yes, that right, Married. And Lady Anne is off to the address given for her Uncle David. Only when she arrives at his house, something is just not right. Another funny and fun, and sometimes mysterious and scary story from Susan Page Davis as Lady Anne continues to search for her uncle and new Earl of Stoneford.
Along with the same characters we met in the first book of this series, we continue to meet believable and interesting characters throughout this book, some we like, and some that are just not so loveable. And again, Susan Davis pens a story that will keep you reading because you want to find out what happens and to whom it happens to. Another book I highly recommend to you history buff out there, and really to anyone who wants a good clean and fun read. You will sure enjoy this continued story of Lady Anne and her cast.
So grab a copy to read and enjoy for yourself. Thanks to Barbour Publishing for providing a copy of this book for me to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only. Dec 19, Melanie rated it it was ok Shelves: Review on my blog: Anne's ch Review on Amazon: Anne's character annoyed me a little bit for most of the book - she just seemed a little uppity, at least to me, though I did start to like her more towards the end.
Dan was a nice character and probably my favorite from Lady Anne's Quest.

I liked the bit of danger in the book. I have to say, some parts of Lady Anne's Quest didn't seem believable to me. I won't go into much detail because I don't want to give away too much of the story, but suffice it to say that some of the choices characters made didn't seem realistic to me. The ending to Lady Anne's Quest was sweet and very nice.
The book leaves a couple of things unanswered, though, and makes me interested in reading A Lady in the Making to find out what happens next. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Julia Butterfly Hill Milieu activiste die 2 jaar in een mammoetboom woonde om de kap van een oerbos tegen te houden. Ze werd daarmee een icoon voor een nieuwe manier van denken en actie voeren, wereldwijd. Kwantum fysicist, systeemdenker en oprichter van de Club van Boedapest, vertelt over de systeemverandering waar we middenin zitten, en welke invloed jij hebt om de wereld te veranderen. Regisseur, researcher, editor en producent van verschillende informatieve, educatieve en documentaireprojecten. Anne was mede-initiatiefneemster voor deze documentaire.
We reisden naar Groenland waar we op de smeltende ijskappen de wetenschapper Konrad Steffen interviewden. Dit maakte op ons allebei veel indruk. Voor Anne werd met deze opnames op Groenland de kiem gelegd voor haar latere zoektocht. Na deze opnames hielden we contact en bleef ik betrokken bij haar initiatieven.
Wat mij zo treft in Anne is haar onvermoeibare enthousiasme. Ze pakt iedereen in: Dit resulteert in hele bijzondere interviews. Ik vind de geestdrift waarmee Anne dit avontuur aangaat en op zoek gaat naar antwoorden en daarbij vooral ook een link legt met haar generatie en de vraag wat zij nu eigenlijk concreet kunnen doen om de problemen van deze tijd het hoofd te bieden erg bijzonder.
Zeker ook omdat je ziet dat ze daarbij zichzelf ook op momenten behoorlijk tegenkomt. Ik wil graag laten zien hoe zij zich ontwikkelt tijdens deze zoektocht en tot wat voor een inzichten ze komt. Creatief en betrokken allround technicus. Ondernemer, cameraman, editor en broadcast beeld technicus in hart en nieren.
Via Eva vroeg Anne mij te helpen met haar initiatief Future Fuel. Het was mij al snel duidelijk dat Future Fuel een bijzondere en inhoudelijk zeer interessante onderneming zou worden. Vanaf dat moment heb ik Anne geholpen met allerlei technische zaken die nodig waren rondom haar quest zoals vormgeving, social media en website.
Al snel volgde de vraag of Eva en ik haar wilden ondersteunen met de opnames van de interviews met de rolmodellen. Hoe graag ik ook had willen meereizen met haar, het budget voor de realisatie hiervan was lang niet toereikend en dus maakten we de afspraak dat ik alleen de interviews zou draaien in Nederland. De interviews in het buitenland moest Anne zelf verzorgen.
