The Gold Girl

by James B. Hendryx

This is the second book that I have read by the author. This is an entertaining plot where the death of a prospector inspires his daughter to travel to the northwest and search for his lost gold claim. She only has a map, two photographs,and a small grubstake when she arrives in a territory of cattlemen, prospectors, the antagonist, and the hero. An easy and entertaining read.
I would have given a higher rating (western genre) except for the ending.

The Promise

by James B. Hendryx

The Promise is made to an old Indian woman. The hero is no hero in the beginning of the story. He is a heavy drinker and gets into plenty of scoffles. He is disowned by his rich father and scorned by his fiancee. The hero makes his way to the logging country and... yes another happy ending.
Not much substance but good entertainment.

A Pair of Blue Eyes

by Thomas Hardy

A romantic intrigue involving one woman and a series of lovers set in the typical Thomas Hardy setting. This book is a great study of the English class structure. The young woman as well as her lovers are complex and flawed characters. The climactic ending is not a happy one but fitting. I enjoyed the experience. I would have given it a 5 except that some parts were not easy.

He works for a benevolent old contractor who befriended him. John's lives in a house with his promiscuous mother, her promiscuous friend and her small neglected niece in a small Georgian town. Love, marriage, annulment, sacrifice, deception, and at the end the ultimate sacrifice.
