A Love of Her Own
Reviewed by Cindy Loven
April McBride is on her way to Lewistown Montana. Her brother is getting married and she is going for the wedding. She is shocked to find out that she has a long stage ride ahead of her. To say that she was displeased would be an understatement. April McBride is a rich little spoiled girl, whose daddy has always given her way. She always strived to please him. Too much perhaps, as she realizes that she is more like him than she would like to be. Self centered and a feeling of entitlement tends to cause her to be very vocal about her opinions, complaints and pretty much everything she wants to speak about.
April McBride is a character that is hard to like, you automatically just want to shake some sense into her. Will she ever learn that not everyone thinks her opinion is important. Nor is everyone willing to jump to her wishes and demands. Butting heads with the stage driver, Morgan, with her brother's friend Wes, and even the sweet little lady who runs the boarding house Miss Margaret. April slowly realizes these people want to be her friend, not her enemy.
