    These is my Words is a diary of a young girl, Sarah Anges Prine, and her journey to the Arizona and New Mexico Territories. The diary dates from when she is seventeen, all the way up until when her children and fully-grown. She tells of her very ill fated first marriage, and her loving prospering second, as well as the lives of her children. It includes her many joys and sorrows of being part of a western pioneer family.
    The writing style Turner uses is absolutely brilliant. The words come alive on the page and make tactile images. No detail of living the pioneer lifestyle is left out. This is usually a good thing, but occasionally the descriptions make stomachs turn. The characters become familiar in ways I didn’t think was possible. In the end, this resulted in many tears. If you’re not a person that cries at books, this will definitely be an exception.
