This was a difficult book to read. While it's nice to read about a strong heroine, it's another to read about an unreasonable brat, which is what Cricket was. This woman was like a plague leaving destruction and mayhem in her wake. It was unrealistic that she could be the reason for her sister-in-law's tragedy and not only did she not face any consequences, but she did not learn a lesson and she continued on as before. I am happy that this wasn't the first book I read from JJ... it would have been my last.

Joan Johnston is a wonderful author and I've rated many of her books as keepers...but this one misses the mark. It starts out fine. A man wants a dynasty and plans for 3 sons but, alas, he has 3 daughters so he just raises them as sons. They are each unique, beautiful women living their lives as they've been taught by the father they love and admire. Naturally things happen and they each learn that they are more vulnerable than they knew and that everyone needs love...and that being a woman doesn't mean giving up their independent thoughts and lives.
While the youngest was "the brat in buckskins" she didn't know any different and I loved her fiesty nature. It was a hoot. Sister Bay was the gentle gal, and Sloan the heir apparent so Cricket could be as outrageous as she chose, except that her father now decided she should marry..whoops. The middle of the book drags and though the writing is good, having Cricket "made into a lady" gets a bid tedious and demeaning. I really liked the characters and enjoyed much of the dialogue. It just didn't make the overall quality that I expect from this author. (Pick up the bodyguard, the bridegroom, the texan and several others instead of this one!!)

This is the first book I have read by Joan Johnston, and I will read more! I love Westerns, be it books or movies and not since Calamity Jane have I seen such heroism in a woman depicted in this genre.
Creighton "Cricket" Stewart,a free spirit, at 17 is the youngest of Rip Stewart's three daughters. Rip is a wealthy cotton plantation owner in Texas at the time it was still a young Republic. Rip taught his daughter's all special skills of survival. In Cricket's case thanks to her father, she was so self reliant that she thought she didn't need any man, ever!She could handle whatever came along, Hostile Indians, Mexican Bandidos, she even had wolves for pets.
Enter Jarrett Creed, a handsome Texas Ranger on a secret goverment mission, to expose traitors to Texas, during this time that the republic was under siege from both Mexiacan armies, and Indians alike. Jarrett, who has lived with an Indian tribe is able to save Cricket from a fix she manages to get herself into with the Comanches ... They both infuriate each other as they travel together to uncover a conspiracy, that also unwittingly has Cricket's sister involved. Together they face danger, adventures, and unexpected romantic situations, which get pretty steamy at times.
And just when you think the story is over, Ms. Johnston gives us a sneak preview of "Texas Woman" and "Commanche Woman" (The stories of her sisters) leaving us wanting more.
I read this book while sitting in hospital waiting rooms, thank you Joan Johnston for taking my mind to another time and place. Laurie

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I realize that this book was first published some twenty years ago but that does not excuse its stone-age take on women (or men, for that matter). The author takes great pains to explain that the 3 daughters in the book, were raised to be as men (read a woman of the modern day), then goes on to describe them in a most unflattering light. The youngest (and the main character, here) is completely selfish, stupid, unreasonable and woefully ignorant. The hero, at least, is unfailingly perfect (strong, intellegent and brave). Repeatedly we are confronted with ridiculus sollutions to non-problems, the lovely idea that "no" means "yes"...and women REALLY DO want to be treated as possessions! The constant clap-trap about "being a REAL woman" was embarassing. I had hoped that this book would have at least had some authentic frontier background to it, but beyond the author placing the date at the beginning of the book and one or two names (pulled from history books) thrown in, there was little to suggest that it was anything but a contemporary setting.
I suffer from an unreasonable need to finish any book that I start but this one presented one of the greatest challenges of my 50+ years. The writing was amateurish, the story was pure drek and the sentiments were insulting to all people everywhere.

While the writing was good, the story was somewhat slow moving & disappointing and the characters left a lot to be desired, particularly the female lead "Cricket." How the hero falls in love w/such a spoiled, immature & utterly selfish person is beyond me. Thoroughout the book, Cricket makes choices simply to be obstinate & winds up hurting others, one in particular, terribly. She causes her sister in law to be brutally raped & beaten & this is glossed over in the book as not being her fault, beacause after all, Cricket didn't mean for it to happen? I've read other Johnston books in the past & like them better, but this one took an effort to get through. Really disappointing.
