Frontier Agreement Reviews
Pierre was looking for a chance at adventure and joining the Lewis and Clark expedition was just the chance that he needed. As the exploration team hunkers down for the winter what he didn't expect was to make a connection with a young woman at the local Native American tribe. Claire only recently rejoined her mothers people after her father died but only being half Native American and a Christian she doesn't feel at all like she fits in. She's drawn to Pierre but she knows that unless her future spouse follows her Christian faith she will never find true happiness. Can these two with different backgrounds find happiness and peace in their common faith? An enjoyable read, not my normal choice of genre, but I'm glad I tried it. *I won a copy of this book as a GoodReads giveaway*
1.5 StarsI had a really hard time getting into this book and it took me much longer than usual to read it. I've discovered I don't enjoy reading fictional books with characters who were real people. It grated on me because I guess my brain can't handle it. ;)This book just ended up being too far out of my element to enjoy.

Very well written, and enjoyable. Highly recommended read.
Thanks to goodreads for a free copy. I enjoyed this nice, sweet, clean romance and learned a little about the Mandan culture as well. 2.75-3 stars.
Really enjoyed the history lesson since I learned very little of the Lewis and Clark expedition in school, sadly enough. Claire and Pierre were lovely characters and I appreciated the authenticity of their relationship considering the environment. Can't wait to see more from this author!!!
DNF @ 20%This was too preachy for me. The heroine constantly refers to converting her Mandan family to Christianity, and it just got on my nerves. I love the time period and the frontier setting, but this just did not work for me.
