My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Betsy is a strong woman whose life is chronicled in Silver Dollar. The book is interesting, and it’s easy to see that the author is used to writing screenplays. There aren’t all of the emotions that are found in most novels, but interestingly, it was still a good read. I’m thinking maybe because he doesn’t give you time to pause. It’s nonstop, one relationship after another in which she finds true love and a whirlwind romance among other things.

This is a quick and easy read that I finished in one evening, and I definitely recommend it.
