The year is 1864. Sister Thomas Josephine is on her way from St Louis, Missouri, to Sacramento, California. During the course of her journey, however, she'll find that her faith requires her to take off her wimple and pick up a gun.
Alone, hunted by enemies of all sides, and faced with a fight she cannot win, Sister Thomas Josephine must make a final, tragic decision, between her faith and her heart...
In this, the final installment of Sister Thomas Josephine's chronicles, the end must - and will - come.
Well we have the last episode in our adventure series featuring Sister Thomas Josephine – another 50-odd pages packed with action as our Papist Murderess seeks to get the better of Windrose’s daughter – Lieutenant Carthy’s revenging fiancée. Muir has been offered the princely sum of $10,000 to abandon Josephine and in all likelihood that’s what he’s done.
Josephine, though less conflicted now than before doesn’t turn her back on him. Will the nun trade in her habit, for another more earthly one? Will she stay true to her Lord? Will the pair of them be meeting him sooner rather than later, after Marshall Reasoner brings them to trial? Or is there one final twist?
Great way to finish – another 4 from 5
This episodic series has it all - history, setting, characters, pace, action, humour - well worth taking a chance on in my opinion.
Boom, I’m done!
