    " This book tell the story of 3 different women who live in the Bride's House. The author is very good at evoking the time period and the first two stories are good. The book falls flat with the third story until a big twist at the end. "

    " The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas is another great historical novel by Dallas set in the mining town Georgetown, Colorado. This novel revolves around the lives of 3 women, Nealie Bent, her daughter Pearl Dumas Curry and granddaughter Susan Curry. Nealie Bent, newly arrived in Georgetown, falls in love with one man and ends up pregnant and married to another man, Charlie Dumas. However, she dies in childbirth and Charlie ends up raising Nealie's daughter Pearl who he is as devoted to as if she were his own biological daughter. Charlie is possessive of Pearl and sends away Frank Curry, the only man she ever loves. However, Pearl is more fortunate than her mother Nealie and ends up marrying Frank 30 years later. Miraculously, she has a child, Susan, at the age of 50 years who ends up loving Georgetown as much as her mother and grandmother do. In the end, she finds love with a man in Georgetown as well. Throughout the story, Dallas weaves in Colorado mining history and not only the life of not miners in Georgetown, but Colorado miners in general. There are secrets in this family that are kept throughout these 3 generations of women, including Pearl's secret which is not divulged until nearly the end of the book. In all of Dallas' books, the characters are well developed and that holds true for this novel as well. "
