These is My Words
by Nancy Turner
I'm amazed that this was Nancy Turner's first novel. It's well-written, exciting and romantic, and clean. It's written in diary form, and the character is uneducated (hence the title) so it took a little getting used to, but once I did I was totally into the story. I was excited to find out there are two sequels, which are just as good as the first.... perhaps even better. There is something for everyone in these books... great characters, action and adventure, plenty of romance, and even a bit of comedy. The book contains a handful of mild swear words and a few frightening scenes but nothing offensive. I have added this excellent novel to my personal "Top-5 Favorite Books of All Time."
