Al Lit Up's character study of Abigail Peacock, the heroine of This Godforsaken Place, is extremely accurate.(2015-07-08)
"This Godforsaken Place is a good adventure story with a strong female protagonist, but the best part...was learning more about Annie Oakley and the Wild West, as well as the Metis Rebellion in Saskatchewan with Louis Riel and Gabriel Dumont. Gault managed to smoothly weave these two very different historical episodes into the story of Abigail Peacock from Wabigoon, Ontario." —Consumed by Ink blog(2015-07-08)
Cinda Gault chats with Naomi of Consumed by Ink blog and talks about her inspiration for Abigail's story, whether or not she'd make the same decisions as Abigail, and what she's working on next.(2015-07-29)
All Lit Up features the all star cast of This Godforsaken Place for their Baseball themed PanLit Games post.(2015-07-23)
"The underlying question [of This Godforsaken Place] is certainly a fascinating one: in a fledgling society, determined to do things 'better,' how much does the fate of the individual matter? And should an individual be willing to accept injustice in the name of the greater good?" —My Book Strings blog(2015-08-04)
In her Year in Review, Naomi at Consumed by Ink chose This Godforsaken Place as one of her Top Seven debut novels of 2015.(2015-12-17)

The author's ability to use the protagonist, Abigail, to develop a personal connection between the reader and other characters was the shining light of the book: first, with Abigail's horse, Abe, then with Shep January, and finally, Annie Oakley.
I would definitely recommend this book.
