Jul 18, 2017Lee McCarthy is a wonderful new writer! I started reading this book and I could not put it down. Lee has done her homework. She shows sharp attention to detail and deep passion for the Arizona landscape, border and immigration issues, the Navajo culture and of course the cowgirl spirit. What really moved me was Lee's character development, Cassie's strength and determination, the caring for her dog and horses, Drew's integrity and vulnerability, the shadow side of men with nothing to lose, her parents intuition and worry, and especially her Navajo teacher and guide. I can't wait for Lee's next book and I am so glad she has embarked on this journey to share her gifts and books with the world.
May 7, 2017I loved this book! I was immediately drawn into the plot and had to keep turning the pages to find out what happens to Cassie. Being an independant horsewoman myself, I felt close to Cassie from the start. Then, when Drew enters the picture and there is some romance...loved it! I would definitely read another book by this author!
Mar 20, 2017Road to the Innocent is a wonderfully captivating read. While it is light and fast moving, the geographical and historical details add some heft, and the character development is deep enough to hold interest in the outcome. She beautifully paints the landscape of the American West. Her Native American character is especially compelling. I could not put it down and read it in a day and a half. I look forward to more from this talented new writer.
Feb 5, 2017This was a well written, engaging book with just the write mix of complexity with the various characters and plots. it took me less than two days to read, indicative of the level of intrigue and a ligh, fun read. In other words I couldn't put it down! I thoroughly enjoyed the character development and setting in Arizona with true historical places and issues used. The descriptive language brought you write into the setting and characters lives with their strengths and weaknesses and left you with the take home of the power and beauty of family and friends in good and bad times. I'd love to read another book by this author! I hope they keep writing.
Feb 2, 2017Road to the Innocent is the perfect beach, plane, or really anywhere read. It is a well-paced, compelling story that includes the elements we love the most: suspense, intrigue, romance, tradition, and family. The book keeps you turning the page and has you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next, but not in a way where you feel exhausted by the pace (as some thrillers are apt to do). The characters - particularly Cassie and her parents - are strong in a realistic way considering the situations they find themselves in throughout the book. Highly recommend this book for book clubs, as it raises great discussion questions around real-world tragedies, disappearing traditions, and the importance of family.
