A Reader's Opinion: CHOOSING BRAVERY by Jacqui Nelson

Updated: Feb 2, 2020



Choosing Bravery is a story of two people with brave and beautiful hearts. Ms. Nelson transported me to the 1860s in Oregon Territory to follow their high adventures! Élodie Rousseau was left in the wilderness and taken in by a schoolmistress and Osage warrior, both with special talents and skills they pass onto Élodie, which is how she becomes the legendary Yellow Feather. Lachlan Bravery, a legendary tracker, must join forces with Élodie to repay what he feels is a debt to a mentor.

Ms. Nelson takes the reader on a western adventure with descriptive storytelling and tender romance. These two characters have to find a way to heal their souls and trust in what matters most. There are touches of intrigue mixed with a blooming romance between Élodie and Lachlan to make this novella an enjoyable story for lovers of historical western romance.

When legends collide, will the sparks ignite their love or drive them apart? (Oregon Territory - 1868) After her parents vanished in the wilderness, Élodie Rousseau found a home with an Osage warrior and a logging camp schoolmistress who joined forces to return Élodie's beloved spirit horse. With them as her teachers, she became the legendary Cascade Mountain guide, Yellow Feather. She knows everything about surviving and thriving in the wild, but something is missing. Legendary Far North fugitive tracker, Lachlan Bravery, is tortured by his failure to find the one person who mattered most—the mentor who taught him everything he once held sacred. Driven to repay a dead man, his hunt for a notorious band of outlaws brings him to Élodie’s mountain where they must join forces on a final quest deep inside a cave with the power to destroy not only their unexpected love but their lives. Brave the wild. Bury the past. Choose your destiny. Choosing Bravery is a stand-alone novella set in a beautiful but dangerously unforgiving wilderness. It’s also the third book in the award-winning Lonesome Hearts series which can be read in any order.
