Review: Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West

Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West
Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West by Dorothy Wickenden
My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Let me say up front, I did not finish this book. Why am I reviewing it then? Well, because I might return to it at some point. From the first section, I feel comfortable saying that it is a well written story about a relatively interesting pair of women. Why did I abandon it if that’s the case? Well, I have well over 2000 books I want to read and the subject of this one just isn’t one that interested me enough to continue reading. I’ve decided I don’t have enough reading time to finish books solely because it is my habit to do so if I don’t have another compelling reason. In this case, I don’t. Maybe I will return to it another day when I am more interested in the days of the frontier.
