At first I wasnt sure if I would enjoy and like the book but once it picked up, the story became a true page turner, one I didnt like having to put down. The author did a great job with the overall story telling and kept you wondering what more could happen to Korina and Adela.Daughter of the Earth is a well told, well researched story set in the Hill Country of Texas. Its replete with suspense, historical reference (i.e., the Camel Corps) and good attention to detail: of places, cultures, and Texas life as it might have been in the mid 1800s. The author weaves a delightful tale thru the experiences of 16 year old Korina Fischer and her German emigrant family. Hopefully, there will be future installments in this captivating story! -CC-
