Touching, inspiring, and full of detail. That was my experience in reading Pam Hillman’s most recent book, Claiming Mariah. Set in the Old West on a ranch near the small town of Wisdom, Mariah and Slade meet amidst difficult life experiences. Both whose lives are about caring for their family and doing the best they can to make that happen. Pam Hillman’s descriptions are so vivid, while reading I almost felt I was watching the scenes in a movie.
I enjoyed Claiming Mariah; the characters and their development throughout the story were well thought out and as a reader I witnessed both Mariah and Slade grow through their shared experience and similar desires. Claiming Mariah was a nice read, something I could sit and relax for a few minutes with, amidst all the other stressors in my life these days.
Having a good book with which to escape into is nice. Having a good book that also fills me with inspiration and helps me to see the changes in my personal relationships over time is a surprise. Claiming Mariah did just that, though. Slade’s changes and his involvement with others helped me to also see how small changes can make the world of difference in a relationship.
