Queen of the Rockies Book 1 by Angela Breidenbach delighted this reader with the true details added about Montana history.
Living in the present day I never considered that in 1889 Helena, Montana would have even considered the need to make the city a tourist attraction.
Calista Blythe while not a real person is a very believable character. In my mind, I could see her struggles with entering a beauty pageant. Not everyone wants to be one but when there is a chance to help others if she does enter it becomes harder to say no.
I felt her sadness at the plight of the street urchins, many left because it was the last stop of the Orphan Trains. Can you imagine being six years old and having to work? Calista can’t either.
Of course, it is the Snowflake Pagent so heartstrings are pulled with each disaster that occurs. Then there’s the funny moments and a love that Calista doesn’t even notice.
