The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas

After I finished my last book, I realized I didn't have another book picked out to read. A friend had sent me The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas so I picked it up and started reading it. This book is divided into three parts, and the first part was by far the best, in my opinion. 

Three generations of women are covered, one in each of the book's parts. The first part covered Nealie Bent, a 17-year-old girl who had run away from an abusive father, in 1881. She rode the train from Hannibal, Missouri to Denver, Colorado then on another 40 miles to Georgetown, a small mining town in the mountains. 

Since I'd lived in Colorado and had been to Georgetown numerous times, the historical look at the small, quaint town was intriguing. And the story of Nealie was a good one. I also liked the descriptions about the house and the town.

Then part two and part three came along. Not so intriguing. These other two women, Pearl and Susan, Nealie's daughter and granddaughter, didn't hold up like Nealie did. Oh well. This was an okay story. If you love romances, this is probably the book for you. It's not a genre I'm found of. 

I did like reading Dallas's novel Tallgrass. Have you read any of Sandra Dallas's books? Do you have a favorite?
