AN UNSEEMLY WIFE, by E.B. Moore, takes place in 1867. It begins in Amish Country in Pennsylvania. But quickly moved our west as Ruth’s husband uproots their growing family and heads to Idaho where there are promises of free land a plenty.
This pageturner got to me right away as Ruth who is nine months pregnant with her fifth child has no other option but to go along with her Amish husband’s rash decision to give up their loving farm and join an English wagon train. Women did not have choices in 1867. It’s hard for us to even imagine. When Ruth questions the logic of leaving before she has given birth, her husband poo poo’s this saying he’s helped birth animals; this would be easy. But when Ruth’s time actually comes…. Horrific!
