    This novella reminds me of the prairie/pioneer/old fashioned romances I read and loved as a teen, though the writing style is much more modern. I love that it's not just a romance; the heroine is strong and brave without always needing a man to rescue her, and her little brother is as much of a character as the love interest. A party scene and a pretty dress balance out the goat milking and 100-year-old shotgun, and there is many a wonderful simile.

She felt like a dress from the bottom of the rag barrel.
 Though Castillo's novellas have all been Christian sci-fi or romance, and though I don't read much in those genre, I look forward to everything she writes. Her novels are easy to read with a brisk pace, and they're clean without being at all preachy. This is the kind of book I'd give my daughter to read, if I had one.

    A heart-warming and original story about a sister, forced to be mother. I enjoyed getting to see Zillia mature out of necessity and learn her limits. I thought all the relationships, positive and negative, within this story were original and realistic. The storyline fit the era very well, which the author had clearly researched and presented smoothly. The elements of faith and religion woven into it were subtle and not preachy, which I appreciate.

    This isn't my usual genre (I like dragons) but I found this book to be well written with likable characters and a well paced plot. It's a good luck at the struggles of a determined young woman and a glimpse into another time and (for me) place. The story has a hint of romance but is focused more on the choices and sacrifices Zillia has to make in order to keep her home and farm. A good read for adults or young teens who might be ready for something a step up in complications from Laura Ingalls.

    . This story gives depth to the struggles that many people endured, the faith they clung to, and the love they shared liberally.

Her mother is a sweet , kind and gentle soul who is about to give birth. Jeb, the stepfather is a mean, uncaring, selfish man who drinks more than he should. He treats his wife with little respect and at times hits her with no remorse . Zillia finds herself alone the day her mother goes into labor. She tries the best she can to help her mother and tells her stepfather to go fetch the doctor. Zillia senses that things are not right as her mother struggles to deliver the baby. On that fateful day, Zillia gains a brother but tragically loses her mother. She feels all alone and a fierce protection comes over her for the baby she now calls Orrie. One morning as she gets up , she notices to her disbelieve that Jeb has taken everything from the house and disappeared. With strength and determination, Zillia vows to her little brother that he will always have her to care for him. Can she do this on her own? What lengths will Zillia have to endure to run a farm and take care of a child at the tender age of sixteen? The story is beautifully written with characters that touch you and bring tears to your eyes. The author has given us a strong , but vulnerable character in Zillia. There are times that she is not sure she can survive, but with help from the town and a special person she soon realizes she can make things better for her brother and herself. I loved the beautiful story that was rich in history and gave us a glimpse into the Native Americans. It shares the hardship of a young woman who finds hope and friendship with people she thought would not help her. Will she be able to raise Orrie? Will the harsh land and work on the farm be to much for her? This story is an inspiration to those who struggle and gives the readers a beautiful story of a young woman who you will see overcome obstacles and grow stronger. It reminds me of the verse in the bible that says, "He will never give you more than you can handle."

    This is a novella that reads like a full length novel. The story is complete and with enough details to leave no questions or gaps for the reader. This is the first of a new series by this author, Texas Women of Spirit Series. Zillia has become self appointed guardian of her half brother Orion, Orrie for short, upon the death of her dear mother, in child birth. Her stepfather is a vile, drunken man, with a penchant for physical abuse. He has no concern for Orrie or the fact his wife is dead. He t This is a novella that reads like a full length novel. The story is complete and with enough details to leave no questions or gaps for the reader. This is the first of a new series by this author, Texas Women of Spirit Series. Zillia has become self appointed guardian of her half brother Orion, Orrie for short, upon the death of her dear mother, in child birth. Her stepfather is a vile, drunken man, with a penchant for physical abuse. He has no concern for Orrie or the fact his wife is dead. He tries to give the boy to his sister to raise. She is not a fit parent herself and Zillia refuses to give up the boy. Thus begins a five year journey to run the farm and raise Orrie by herself. There is a nearby family that remain friends and helpmates to Zillia. This is more than a tale of survival; it is a coming of age tale of a young girl finding her place in the world. She also learns of God’s love for all His children, even those who do not think they are worthy. This is a realistic look at rural American life in the 1800s. It is also a reminder of God’s presence in all of life, if one will only look for Him. I completely enjoyed this story and look forward eagerly to the next installment of the series. Solid 5 Stars.

    I finished this book in one night. I was supposed to be working on something else, but err, got distracted and kept reading.

Zillia was definitely in over her head, but I loved that she didn't give up and that she continued to do the best she could. I liked her final decision at the end of the book. I think most writers would've gone the other way because that's what people want to see, but I thought Zillia's choice was realistic. She needed to make the right choice for her and Orion. Castillo's style is easy to read and smooth. Immersive, and vibrant. I would've liked to see more at the end, to see Zillia settle in a bit and show some of the happy times I'm sure were to come.

    I just finished reading this and I have to say that I read it in a day. I had to know what was going to happen next with Zillia and her little brother Orrie. I saw where the writer had spent some time researching this time period and I believe the writer did very well. It was a fascinating story of a young woman who gets stuck with the task of caring for her baby brother right after his birth and taking care of a farm. Her father died some time ago and her mother died in childbirth. Her stepfath I just finished reading this and I have to say that I read it in a day.

It was a fascinating story of a young woman who gets stuck with the task of caring for her baby brother right after his birth and taking care of a farm. Her father died some time ago and her mother died in childbirth. Her stepfather runs off and leaves them both there alone to fend for themselves. In a time where any little thing women did that was different, it seems that if the women of the town knew what all Zillia had to do to survive they would probably think even less of her than they already did. But with steely determination, this 16-year-old girl is determined to take care of it all. Along with the help of her friends, she is able to survive, but has to make some hard choices along the way.

    I was impressed with how well developed the characters were for such a short read. Angela did a great job of painting the picture of Zillia's life and struggles. I was hooked from the first page to the last, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I love a strong female lead, especially where historical romance is concerned, Zillia is certainly one. There's an underlying emphasis on faith without it being pushy or preachy and it's an all around well-written and well-developed story.

However, I would have liked to have seen a little more development of the relationship before the end. If nothing else a little flirting and exchanged glances throughout would've helped sell it a little more. Overall, I really enjoyed The River Girl's Song and absolutely look forward to reading more of Angela's work. *In exchange for my honest review I was given a free copy.

I'm looking forward to the next in this series!

    I was asked to give an honest review of this amazing book, I was not able to put the book down, I had to read it to the end. What an amazing story of a girl surviving on her own with a responsibility of raising her half brother when her mother died after the birth. I felt like I was in the character feeling her pain of struggles and frustrations. I think this book is highly recommended! The author is amazing in keeping my interest in the book, job well done!

    A wonderful historical novella that will inspire many young women. A message of perseverance, faith, loyalty, and love. This story contains many life lessons that are lacking in today's day and age. The characters were endearing and the settings rich. I felt like I knew these people and could go down the road aways and run into them at the general store. I recommend this clean read for the girls on the verge of womanhood in your life.

    An interesting book with a good plot that was a little immature for my taste. I felt that it was sometimes too fast-paced, sometimes too slow. I felt like the plot and characters weren't very well-developed. On the flipside ... The formatting was lovely! I especially liked the heading fonts. From what I could see, it was historically accurate, and clean. The Christian content was great ... though I don't know how I feel about dancing for God. I'm not likely to dance anywhere. ;)

It is the story of Zillia Bright, a young girl on a Texas farm with her mother and stepfather. When her mother dies from childbirth and her abusive stepfather leaves, Zillia is left to run the farm and take care of her newborn brother. With the support and help from her neighbors, Zillia quickly adjusts to her new life. As she runs the farm and takes care of her brother, she fears her stepfather’s return as his family lives in town and suspicious of his “sudden” disappearance. Adding to her worries is the growing attention from two different men. And the possibility of her family back East coming for her. Will she be able to keep her new life afloat? Will her stepfather return? Will she choose one man or the other? The River Girl’s Song is a typical prairie struggle story. A young girl who needs to grow up fast or the wildness of the West will tear her down. The love triangle that forms as she gains the attention of a local farmer and a man in town. It was a fast read. The drama was common. The romance was familiar and sweet. And while enjoyable, I do not see myself reading the other books in this series. If you like Old West romance dramas, you may enjoy The River Girl’s Song The River Girl’s Song is available in paperback and eBook

Jeb returned and demanded everything. He left with very little, but it was always in her mind that he would return to take whatever he could. Her only help was her nearest neighbor. As time went on, some of the women from the nearby town tried to help Zillia and her young brother. Jeb returned and learned that they were receiving some help and wanted all that they had received. He was disappointed when they did not have valuable possessions. He demanded the deed to the farm, but Zillia had been smart enough to place it with a lawyer who had transferred the ownership from her mother to Zillia after her mother's death. This is a very good book and I look forward to reading other books by this author.

It was well worth reading, and it had a good ending ... and the ending was happier than the beginning.

When her stepfather abandons the siblings she continues the care and raising of her brother and she also takes care of the farm her parents left behind at thier deaths. This is the story of her struggles and triumphs and eventual HEA.

Then... it watered down and became boring... just to read about all her troubles. The writer could do so much more with the story.

    Too young This was a very well written book by Angela Castillo and I enjoyed reading it. A abusive husband and step-father, a pregnant nother, a 16 year old step-daughter, a mothers death, a robbery, abandon, a baby brother, work, work, work, years later, neighbor and friends helping, odd jobs, no money, finding love. I would recommend this book to everyone. I really enjoyed reading it. Buy the book and enjoy.

    A girl forced to grow up too soon This story of a mother dying during childbirth and a no-good step-father who abandoned his 16-year old step-daughter and newborn baby son, after stealing everything they needed to survive rang true. The girl's courage raising the newborn and running her father's farm with the help of good neighbours was reason for respect. I enjoyed the story and recommend it.

    So much history and wonderful read. So enjoyed this book and the others I have read by this writer. The characters are wonderful and you feel that you know them and feel as they do in the story. Love the way history is explained and how you really get a feel for the way they truly lived. Will read all of her books, they are amazing.
