As you can guess, the heroine of this story is Mariah; Ms. Mariah Malone. She’s a woman with a kind heart, faith in God, and a spirit that won’t be crushed despite her sorrowful situation. Her story takes place on a Wyoming ranch in 1882. In one of my favorite scenes she takes a stand against injustice, but not without a few dozen casualties.
Buck- “You shouldn’t have done that, ma’am.”
Mariah- “I know. I wasted all my eggs.”
At about 270 pages, the book was a light read for me. The story flowed at a good pace and I could picture it in my mind as if I were watching a movie. There’s so many times when I feel like sitting down to watch a good film, but am often disappointed with weak plots and shallow characters. That’s when I need a book such as “Claiming Mariah.” Good characters, solid plot, happy end. ;)
