Jessie by Judy Alter is not just a novel, it's a 19th century saga. Within this riveting tale, which spans the 40 years of Jessie's life from her marriage to John in 1841 until after his death in 1881, I felt like I was living the history of America from it's early westward expansion, through the Civil War and past the aftermath of Lincoln's assassination.

These stories are about women and how their lives fit into the customs
and mores of their age. For women of the 21st century, they are a revelation.

I liked the flow of history in the making. Jessie was an amazing woman,tutored by her father at a very young age, she knew more about politics than her fathers friends. It was very hard for her to be quiet, and that was a problem for the rest of her life. Well written, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to my book club.
Mr.Death
I enjoyed the history involved in the story eventho it wasn't accurate. It was very interesting just as the other books by Judy Alter.

I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.

This is a fictional Historical Romance, not a biography about Jessie Bentonville Fremont. Yet it's written from her perspective, like an autobiography. I'm an avid reader, & don't usually keep reading a story that I find slow paced. This story I kept coming back to, because it was "real". It gIves Jessie's real motives, emotions, dreams & efforts. She lived most of her life privileged in wealth & influence, yet she used her talents too. I do recommend this story.
Mavivasa
This series has been both historically interesting and Alter does a great job in bringing these amazing women to life. Jesse is an interesting read and I look forward to book 5.

Writing didn't seem as up to par as some of her other stories.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed the book. It reads like a biography from a woman's perspective. The characters were real people, but it's fiction.
I really enjoyed learning about the Gold Rush, President Lincoln, the railro ads and other historical events that made the US great.
