For Santa Fe Cameron, life is made up of violent contrasts: the rough wagon of the gay young Irish medicine vendor who brings her East and the scented hansom cabs and carriages waiting before her own Fifth Avenue mansion; the glittering world of the Astors and a dreary cell in the Tombs. I believe that a good book entertains with its story and that is often satisfying enough, but a great book reveals a universal truth in such a way as to find relevance in the reader's life no matter what stage of life they are in. To escape this life Fey marries Terry Dillon, a handsome Irish rogue, only to be abandoned in New York, pregnant and alone. This is the story of Santa Fe Fey Cameron, named after the town she was born in, Santa Fe New Mexico. No doubt Seton does historical fiction well in terms of detail, but this would not be the first book of hers I would try.

It's also good to note that she had sprinkled some wise words for the millenial people like me where it's quite hard to find some sound advice like hers. It reminded me of Gone with the Wind, and yet Fey was more likable than Scarlet O'Hara. Billy Pigg, the celebrated Northumbrian piper played 'Derwentwater's Farewell' especially for her.

Very minimal writing or notations in margins not affecting the text. Possible clean ex-library copy, with their stickers and or stamp s. Her high born spanish mother died in childbirth, and her father the disinherited younger son of a highland laird died when she was a young girl, leaving her to be raised by a lower class mexican family. She researched through the memories of the elders in the area, the scant records available from the late 1800's and has presented us a piece of thought-provoking historical fiction. Unfortunately, this novel did not make me feel the same way. .

But she is also a study in the poor choices a young woman might make if she isn't afforded the guidance of her family and has no obligation to take the guidance offered her by wise and caring people strewn along her path. This one is highly, highly recommended by me — and I cannot wait to get to the other Seton book I have here sitting on my desk. The spine may show signs of wear. It reminded me of Gone with the Wind, and yet Fey was more likable than Scarlet O'Hara. I wanted to see her choose strength of her own to survive and was dismayed that she turned to seducing a powerful and rich man to marry her and in so doing hid her past and who she was behind him. She's orphaned at a young age and dreams of a better life. Her novel Devil Water concerns James, the luckless Earl of Derwentwater and his involvement with the Jacobite rising of 1715.

The worlds she builds in her books are so engrossing that you hardly realize you are reading. Later, when Fey was about 7, her father was killed when he went to help a fellow doctor with a surge I read this book as the March selection of the Rainbow Reading Challenge. I am about half way through reading her 12 novels, and I will be very sad when I come to the end of the list. The spine may show signs of wear. It was published first in 1946, and the copy I got from the library was bound in one of those old style books — unassuming, no pictures, gold lettering on top of an orange cover.

If you come across a copy of this out of print book and are a fan of Seton, it's a pleasant way to spend an afternoon or two reading, but I wouldn't go out of my way for a copy, nor pay a fortune for it used unless you're a serious collector. All the color, excitement, and rich period detail which distinguish Anya Seton's novels are here, together with one of her most unusual heroines. There are many trails up the mountain, but in time they all reach the top. This was indeed a good story - sad but realistic. Very Good; Light reading creases and shelf wear.

If you're new to Anya Seton, don't start out with this one. A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. This historical fiction novel was a little difficult for me to get started just because of the many Spanish words in the beginning, but I'm about half-way through and it's interesting. She certainly visited her Snowdon cousins at. Very minimal writing or notations in margins not affecting the text.
