She Shall Be Praised was a good book. I liked the story and the era.

This story is not all bad. Ridiculous, unconvincing and even foolish at times it but it’s not all bad because after all, there was a lesson to be learned.

So a girl gets accidently left behind in the mountains and her travelling party is worried but did not send anyone back to search for her? The story describes a doting father for the hot mess of a girl that got lost but the doting father upon hearing did not issue out a search party?
Yep, makes NO sense.

Exciting at first but the plot was foolish, and the romance fell flat.
I wonder why authors have to paint women as silly and foolish creatures in comparison to the males ? Running off in the pitch black of the night over a silly argument? Freeing a man she’s afraid of? Are there really women SO stupid in the world ? The heroine in the book was painted so silly it was maddening. I understand that she was a “socialite” and perhaps her lack of basic intelligence was supposed to convince the reader that she had indeed learned some life skills while shut up in the mountains. All grand ideas, but it was just soo annoying to read.

This story is not all bad. Ridiculous, unconvincing and even foolish can describe it but it’s not all bad because after all, there was a lesson to be learned: Sometimes we do not know just how capable we are until we are put in a situation when we have no choice but to learn and survive.

Yep, makes NO sense.
Even sillier, the local o-so handsome sheep rancher "claims" that he cannot take her back to civilization until the fall because of his sheep shearing??? silly much?? We discover that (due to a tragedy) the nearest town is not even that far away and indeed the rancher could have spared one of his staff for a day to take her back…but then we would have no story right? Exciting at first but the plot was indeed foolish.

I wonder why authors have to paint women as silly and foolish creatures in comparison to the males in the story just to convince us that the heroine needs to become a prov 31 woman.

I understand that she was a “socialite” and perhaps her lack of intelligence was supposed to convince the reader that she had indeed learned some life skills while shut up in the mountains, but it was just annoying to read about it, she was always apologizing and feeling like a failure when sometimes it was really the man to blame.
You may have moments when you wonder if the author was paying attention to what she was writing.
