5-Star Reviews for my Strong Women Protagonists
Lynn M. ~ Cut From Strong Cloth (Threads of Courage Book 1) Once I started, it was impossible go put down. For strong women, everywhere. This historical selection of family and conflict was engaging throughout the entire story.
Dixie ~ Cut from Strong Cloth is one of the best researched historical novels I have read. It is well-written and the characters are three-dimensional personalities with strengths, weaknesses, and unexpected surprises. Ellen was resourceful and intelligent, rebelling against the limitations placed on women by society of the times. I recommend this book to anyone who loves strong female protagonists.
Tracy Lawson ~ Cut From Strong Cloth. Well-written and researched historical fiction based on a real woman whose story could easily have been lost to the ages. Sittig constructed the character Ellen Canavan based on her great-grandfather’s first wife, who, though an innovator in the textile trade, could only claim credit through her husband. Great read!
Alicia A. ~ Cut From Strong Cloth. Excellent read!!!! This author brings the characters to life in such a satisfying way to the reader. If you love good historical fiction you will devour this book.
Therese A. Vanhouten ~ Cut From Strong Cloth. A well-researched historical novel about the textile industry during the early years of the Civil War that focuses on the textile industry. Inspired by family lore about an ancestor, the author spins a fascinating tale about a strong woman determined to make her place in the male-dominated textile industry.
Diane H. ~ Last Curtain Call (Threads of Courage) (Volume 2) I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found myself staying up late to read more. The characters and the historical background were both engaging, especially the protagonist Annie Charbonneau.
Harley G. ~ Last Curtain Call The author bares the underbelly of life in coal country in the 1890s. Although both the author and protagonist are female, this is not a ‘girly book’. Gripping, well-written account taken from real history.
J. Westfall ~ Last Curtain Call. Loved the book and could not put it down. My 94-year old mother picked it up next, and could not put it down either! We both learned about life in a coal village in the 1800s. Lots of twists and turns to the plot.
Cynthia R. ~ Last Curtain Call. Conscientious research and insight into the challenges faced in the late 19th century coal towns. Sittig draws compelling characters that the reader cares about.
Strasshog ~ Last Curtain Call. Excellent! Bought copies for friends who then loaned the copies to their friends. Everyone here loves this author!
