A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon-from child to determined young adult to loving mother-she shares the turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that molded her, and recalls the enduring love with cavalry officer Captain Jack Elliot that gave her strength and purpose.

Rich in authentic everyday details and alive with truly unforgettable characters, These Is My Words brilliantly brings a vanished world to breathtaking life again.

Narration wasn't great, a bit slow, monotone and dragging. Could have brought a lot more excitement to this book. The book itself was not bad, but would prefer more drama and detail. It didn't hold my attention all that well.

Amazing book! Travel through the life experiences of a young girl as she grows into a young woman. Share the tragedies and joyful moments of her life. This book kept my complete attention from the first words, to the very end. I cried, I smiled and I was sad when it was over. The narrator captured Miss Sarah Prine perfectly! I loved listening to this book. I highly recommend it!
