An Ordinary Woman: A Dramatized Biography of Nancy Kelsey

'“Holland packs her pages with action and historical detail. She remains in the front ranks of the genre along with Mary Stewart, Dorothy Dunnett, and the late Mary Renault.” —Chicago Sun-Times   “Prolific historical novelist Holland uses Nancy’s own letters as well as archival material to recreate the life of a pioneer woman who was a legend in her own time. . . . A vivid and engaging narrative.” —Publishers Weekly   “Holland [paints] an accurate and vibrant story of California as an emerging drama with one woman at the core. This is what a biography should be: a story that makes us feel we were there and wish we could have been Nancy Kelsey ourselves. Bravo Ms. Holland for bringing another nearly forgotten woman to three-dimensional life.” —RT Book Reviews'
