Bess Streeter Aldrich (1881-1954) became one of America's best-loved and most widely read writers in the first half of the twentieth century. The main theme of this book seems to be the wife's insecurity, wondering if her husband truly loves her. However, it is a good read, to find out that these were real people, and how shallow some people are, and how deep and loyal are others. It seems that the Lieutenant had traded his fiery emotional "first-love" for one that was steady, loyal, and true.

The main theme of this book seems to be the wife's insecurity, wondering if her husband truly loves her. However, it is a good read, to find out that these were real people, and how shallow some people are, and how deep and loyal are others. It seems that the Lieutenant had traded his fiery emotional "first-love" for one that was steady, loyal, and true. Lots of details about the difficulties of living on the Indian Frontier, the difficulty of travel, and the ways of the pioneers.

The entire time I was reading this book, I could picture it being made into a wonderful movie, like an endearing TV movie. The setting is late 1800's in the American West, which means there's lots of adventure and struggles for the characters to cope with. However, the biggest struggles of all come not from the weather or landscape but from human emotion and love, which are timeless tales.

The main character makes a decision to follow her heart - unsure what the result will be - and even after what seems like a resolution, her decision still causes moments of nagging doubt. The characters and their emotions, and situations, are all very real and as usual for Aldrich, extremely well written. This is perhaps the most romantic of all Aldrich's books, in a very quiet and gentle way. I really lost myself in this book - the characters and western Army posts - and the romance was very sweet. I was sad when it was over, and would have loved for her to have written a sequel.

Using a diary of an actual person added truth and grit to the story. Historically she introduces the "other side" of being a Army Wife in those turbulent times. She does not flinch from talking about the ever present hardships.

... and settle in for a wonderful read .... based on the actual diary of a young woman who lived and loved on the frontier of middle America from Nebraska to the Dakotas in the years after the Civil War.

Bess Streeter Aldrich is a classic writer of the old Midwest. Her novels draw from real stories, I'm sure, of the hardships endured and sacrifices made by our settlers. I never thought about why our army was stationed throughout the midwest and west of our country until I read The Lieutenant's Lady -- they were here to protect our settlers. The Lieutenant's Lady is a classic love story of a woman falling in love with her cousin's fiancee, a U. S. soldier. When the cousin jilts her fiance for another suitor, the protagonist in the story journeys to the base where he is stationed, at the risk of great danger, to give him the news, and ends up marrying him. He is displeased that she has come, and there is nothing for her to do but stay, so they marry to avoid raised eyebrows. In the end, they fall in love and it is a successful marriage. I enjoyed the love story and the view into our military's history.

This book is about a girl, Linnie, and her spoiled cousin, Cynthia. Linnie is visiting her cousin's family, and meets Lt. Norman Stafford at a party. She greatly admires him, because he seems to show respect for her, and is more mature than other men. However, Norman is in love with Cynthia, and that night, he proposes to her. Cynthia is a flirt, and ends up eloping with George Hemming, another young man. Linnie is in anguish, for she secretly is in love with Norman. She takes the tickets that Norman had intended for Cynthia, and gets on a steamboat headed for the fort at which he is at. You'll have to read to find out what happens next!
