The Journey of Josephine Cain by Nancy Moser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve very much enjoyed all of the American Tapestries books that I have read so far.
I think this era appealed to me less than the other eras however that is my own personal preferences.
However, the era is not why I gave this book a four star rating.
To be honest, I felt that it wrapped up entirely too fast. It felt rushed and I felt a bit cheated. Otherwise the book was pretty good and I would definitely read more by this author!
She longs to go out west where her father is in charge of laying the railroad. She wants to have adventures—see the world.
Honestly though, I felt there were a lot of times when she acted very spoiled and entitled. That character flaw kind of annoyed me a bit. She always seemed to get what she wanted even if she had to pout and throw a tantrum for it.
I started to notice a bit of a change in her towards the end of the story. She seemed to mature and become a little less whiny and a bit more self-sufficient rather than demanding and entitled.
It was with the changes that I noticed in her that I began to appreciate the story a bit more but just as I became interested the story wrapped up. That was disappointing to me. I felt like there was a huge leading up to this major event and it just blew over.
I wish less time had been spent with Josephine’s dillydallying about with random things and more character building with her love interest(s) and I wish the conclusion had been played out a bit more satisfactorily.
Overall this was a pretty good book. I just think it needed a more satisfying ending
