These Is My Words by Nancy E. Turner is a wonderful novel written in diary format by Sarah Agnes Prine a perfect example of the strong women who helped settle and tame the frontier. This diary takes place in the Arizona territory between 1881-1901. In it Sarah records all that happens in her life the struggles she and her family face and her love of books and learning. You laugh with Sarah and cheer for her as she mounts seemingly insurmountable odds and cry with her at the heartbreak and trouble she faces. It is a well written novel that transports the reader to Arizona Territory at that wild and untamed time. I can't wait to get time to read the sequel!
