Judy: Lady Anne's Quest by Susan Page Davis
Book 2 in the Prairie Dreams Series
In the first book, The Lady's Maid, we watch as Lady Anne and her maid Elise travel from England to America in search of Anne's Uncle David. Her father and Uncle John have died leaving the Earldom to David. She refuses to give up on finding him to take his rightful place rather than another relative. Her search continues and leads her to Eugene, Oregon along with her friends Rob, Dulcie and Dan. When they have to travel further yet only Daniel Adams goes with her. She really liked Dan as a friend but nothing more, after all he was going to be a farmer here while she would be returning to England.
Daniel had went with his brother Hector to their new land but he couldn't keep his mind off of Anne. Finally Hector sends him off to find her and see if there is any hope at all to gain her affections. He travels with her to head where the latest rumor says her Uncle is. That he had bought a mine. They come upon all types of adventures as they travel along. Just about the time it looks like Anne might find her elusive Uncle David something else seems to come between them and send them in the wrong direction.
I enjoyed both of these books in this series. Susan did a great job of bringing characters alive. There was Dan who was holding onto a small hope that he could win Anne, and I found myself hurting for him each time he wondered where his life would be if she never did come around. Anne who had to hang on to each thread of hope even though it often looked like she might not find her Uncle alive. The villains that you wanted to see fail at their underhanded ways and the villain that you thought maybe had some good in them...somewhere deep down. The third book in this series, A Lady in the Making, will be David's story and will be released in October.
