"Years" by Lavyrle Spencer; "The Four Winds" by Kristin Hannah; "The Giver of Stars" by Jo Jo Moyes; and "The Yankee Widow" by Linda Lael Miller. And "Shadow of the Hawk" by K.S. Jones. I'm all ready to read "Till My Last Breath" by Deborah Swenson. It promises to draw me into the historical comparisons.
All of these books manage to portray women with indomitable spirits. And of course, memorable characters that stay with you. I'm looking forward to hearing what you like to read. Who are your favorite characters?
