Fisher weaves family dynamics and individualism into a captivating historical tale set in the early 1900s in her series kicker in The Women of Campbell County: Family Saga series. After losing her mother at three, the bright, feisty Olive Westchester has become too much for her older sisters, who are struggling to raise children of their own on their father’s Pennsylvania farm. By ten, Olive is helping her father with bookkeeping and other farm responsibilities. But becoming a wife and mother is not something Olive wishes to do when the whole wide world is open before her. Olive’s bond with her siblings and other family members, particularly her brother fulfills an emotional component, and Fisher is excellent when it comes to portraying the conflict of characters, especially Olive’s growing realization about the prevailing gender inequality and her father’s tyrannical ways. The dialogue is both entertaining and realistic, the characterization attentive, and the razor-sharp descriptions evoke an authentic rural atmosphere. She beautifully blends bigotry, self-realization, love, jealousy, loss, resentment and anger, and grief into a resonant story of familial love that both soothes and devastates. The lovers of historical fiction won’t want to miss this engrossing coming-of-age tale.
