About the Author

Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books (with sales around 6.5 million) for teens, women, and children. That’s a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a “storyteller.” Her young adult novels (Diary of a Teenage Girl, True Colors etc.) appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She’s won a number of awards (including RT’s Career Achievement Award, the Rita, and the Gold medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog.

My Thoughts On This Book

Delia Blackstone will not marry a man many years older than her own parents just because her family needs his money. And how could her parents be OK with trying to marry her off to this older man? And then a stranger shows up and offers her an out. A way to escape this horrific arranged marriage.

I have read so many Melody Carlson books and have loved each one of them, and Delia and the Drifter is no different. The characters, some I enjoyed, some not so much, but all played their part so well in this story. My heart really felt so bad for Delia and the situation her parents put her in. I don’t blame here for leaving to find a new life for herself instead of marrying a man she cared nothing for. I so much enjoyed following Delia on her journey. But it wasn’t always easy, there were surprising twists and turns that were adventurous yet somewhat horrific along the way and Delia has trouble with which of her new friends she should trust. This is a wonderful book for those who enjoy a good western story! I give this one 5 Stars!

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

More from Melody

I love historical stories about women. Particularly ones in the American frontier and old west. Probably because I grew up hearing pioneer stories from my grandparents, whose parents arrived in covered wagons. But contributions made by pioneering females is often overshadowed by their male counterparts. That’s why I enjoy researching and telling these fictional yet reality-based stories of women who lived and loved and did their part to settle the frontier. To me they are the unsung heroes of the West.
