"Lauraine Snelling creates a memorable character with courage, determination and honor." -- romantictimes.com

About the Author

Lauraine Snelling is an award-winning author of over 30 books, both fiction and non fiction for adults and young adults. She has two horse series for young teen girls, the GOLDEN FILLY SERIES and HIGH HURDLES. Lauraine is also the author of the popular RED RIVER OF THE NORTH and RETURN TO RED RIVER series set in North Dakota in the past part of the 19th century.

Besides writing both books and articles, Lauraine teaches at writer's conferences across the country and has an active speaking career. She and husband Wayne have two grown sons, four grand dogs and live in the country where Lauraine can garden, sew, do crafts, cross stitch, enjoy her birds and eventually have a horse again.
I got this book for free on my kindle and read it because I needed a light fiction book, something mindless.
Brooke Taylor
Its a great book and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian romance historical fiction.

I'm an avid reader of anything about the Old West, but I had never read anything by Lauraine Snelling. WHAT A FIND! I was completely transported each time I picked this book up. It didn't matter if I was taking a break, sitting in a busy doctor's waiting room, or waiting to pick up kids at school, I was immediately transported to Dove House with Ruby and "her girls". Then I'd look up and sadly realize I was back in the present day. Even if you're not into the Old West, Ruby is an excellent read!

Ruby has gone West to see her dying father and to claim her inheritance only to find that a huge surprise and disappointment await her and her little 9 yr. old sister. She cannot even call Little Missouri a town or civilization, but that is just the beginning. Bridging the gap from New York to the wild Dakotas may take more than she has inside her. Snelling does a great job building the setting for the characters for this and future books. I am already reading book two, "Pearl" which hopefully will build on book one.

When I first started reading this book, I enjoyed it, but I wasn't really "into" it. However, as I came to know the people of "Little Misery", I learned to love them all. Before long, I found myself thoroughly enjoying my visit to the Dakotah Territory. I'm glad that I started the series after they were all out, because by the time I finished "Ruby", I wasn't ready to leave Dakotah, even for a little bit! I was so glad to go directly into reading "Pearl" (which, by the way, was just as good!). :)

I know this book is part of a series, but I was disappointed that there was no hint of an ending for this particular book. It just kind of left you hanging, and based on the back cover of the next book, simply moves along to another main character. I kept reading, thinking something would start to gel, but it never did (at least for me). I don't know that I will read the other books if this one is any indication of how the others will be. In fairness, I will say the storyline led me to want to keep reading, but some sort of resolution (at least in the life of one of the characters) would have left me feeling better about the book.

At first after looking at the reviews, then reading(or trying to read) the book I thought maybe I am not reading the same book. I could see someone who doesn't read much to rate it a three star, but a four or five? To say it was amazing? Let me tell you, NO!! First, it took almost 6 chapters and two days staying at Dove House before Ruby figured out what a brothel and a "kept" woman was! What? Really? I couldn't decide(and I think the author couldn't either) if Ruby was a strong, brave lady or a stupid one!?!?! Then there is the whole Captain and Rand thing. There is not ONE clear plot line in this story. I really think the author was off her ADD meds when she wrote it. It is ALL over the place. I have read 74% on my Kindle and just can't finish. And I finish all Books!!!! The sad thing is the idea behind inhereting a brothel is really cool. In the author's defense, she uses great vocabulary and descriptions were pretty good. I almost wonder if anyone took the time to edit it??? So disapointed! :(

Being a North Dakota native this book brings back a feeling of home. The descriptions of the badlands are wonderful. The main character, Ruby, is a strong independent woman who you find your self feeling for, laughing with and cheering on. This book is worth picking up.

I really enjoy Christian lit and westerns, so I thought for sure I would love this one. It was a huge disappointment. Ruby and her little sister Opal are sent out west to find their ailing father and claim their inheritance. From the very begining, they are plagued with problem after problem and throughout the story these problems are never really resolved. You meet several colorful characters that each have their own issues or problems, but once again nothing is resolved. This book is part of a trilogy and I understand the need to "leave you hanging", but this book basically just stopped. I had one other really big issue with this book. A character in the book is raped. That is not my problem, because it's not graphic. My problem is the antagonist yells at her and tells her it was her own fault for fighting back. Ruby hears this and FINALLY grows a backbone and demands the woman leave her home. Then a few pages later she feels guilty and apologizes to the woman even though she never left. Really!?! All in all I thought the book was depressing and dragged on with no resolution for any of the characters. If you enjoy Christian westerns or just westerns, I would highly recommend Tracie Peterson's Brides of Gallatin series. I hope this helps.

A Promise to Believe In (The Brides of Gallatin County, Book 1)
A Love to Last Forever (The Brides of Gallatin County, Book 2)
A Dream to Call My Own (The Brides of Gallatin County, Book 3)

I borrowed Ruby from my mother-in-law. I didn't know if I would like the book, but tried it anyway. I found myself intrigued by the early twists in the plot. I loved most of the characters. Rand took a while for me to like, but I did in the end. Belle, well, she was just Belle. The setting of the book added a lot to it, since there aren't that many dealing with women in the West. All that with a Christian background, and it adds to a great read. There were only a few small parts that I didn't like, mostly the arguments Ruby had with herself. They don't take away from the book much at all. I would definitely read again.

Doesn't fit like a romantic historical book but a good read. I'm waiting on the rest of the series to finish all the books.

This author is great with writing about morals and Christian beliefs. She keeps you interested throughout the whole book and wants to read more of her books.

If you enjoy historical romance, you will enjoy this book. In most books, I skip alot but I don't with her books. I can't seem to be able to put hers down until they’re finished.
