Prairie Pearl 2by Arleen Brenner
Synopses & Reviews
Prairie Pearl 2: The Story of Amy Stanford, is the second in a series of six historical books written for teenage girls. The series is enjoyed by all ages. Prairie Pearl, the first book in the series tells the Story of Ellen Stover. It shares the joys and hardships of Ellen as she strives for survival in a not so perfect world. The girls live in an era when woman's rights were few or non-existent.
Amy Stanford has a dream of becoming a school teacher and works hard at school. Her chances are slim to none of realizing her dream. If her father has his way she will become Bubblin' Bob's wife.
Follow Amy as her life is abruptly changed forever. Will she survive the physical and mental abuse that is a daily part of her life? Will she succeed in fulfilling her dream or will she be forced to take on family obligations?
Join Amy and her friends as you learn the history of Saskatchewan. Reviews of the Book
My new friend, Amy Stover
It is her fault that my dishes are still in the sink and clothes still in the dryer. I started reading about her last night and just finished this morning (here it is 10:00AM) and I am still in my night clothes. Gotta get a move on me but first I must write a note to Amy's creator.
Arleen. I really enjoyed your book and the history and cooking lessons are great. In fact, I plan on reading the book again in order to get to know the dear people better. I would like to know Amy's Father's reaction to her firm dismissal of his existence.....I just hope he treats the young girl better than he treated his wife and children. MEN like him and the Priest need to have something chopped off when they are born......before they develop into beasts. Iwonder who or what contributes to this greater than thou behaviour.

Tsehkehnache Poetry is based on my experiences in life, the heartaches and negative impact of alcohol in my life. The love of my life, my husband Tony is the inspiration behind the love poems for he was the one who taught me all about affection and trust. To me, spirituality is the most important aspect in life, and the second most important is family. My husband and children and grandchildren are the happiness of sunshine in my life right now.
