Book Review: Tried and True by Mary Connealy

Tried and True is a fabulous Western must read novel! The story is about three sisters who cover themselves up as men in order to go fight during the war. This war being the one over slavery. Their father lost his son to the war and has hounded and pushed the issue with his daughters to go fight in the war to revenge their brother’s death. One by one each of the women go off to fight in the war. After serving their time they get land grants. Each sister picked out her own piece of land.  Now after awhile a land grant official is sent to check out the properties. This land marshal finds out within moments of meeting the youngest that she is definitely not a man and is baffled by her story of fighting in the war. He soon tries to help her figure out a way to save her from losing the land until danger  soon comes threatening her and her sisters. Soon he finds out that all three sisters went to war dressed like men! Will the sisters lose their land grants? Will the land marshal fall in love with the youngest sister? Will she marry him even though they both want two different things? And who is behind the threat? I highly suggest for every reader to read on and find out! This novel was a beautiful and humorous story about three sisters.  I rate this novel a 5 out of 5 stars!
