I was rooting for this plucky and likable heroine and her mules all the way.--MAX MCCOY, author of Indiana Jones adventures and award-winning westerns
Miss Royal's Mules is a nice mix of a good story with accurate historical events and details. The author's rendition of a mule's bray was spot on. (I could just hear Andy or Mickey, the two mules we worked when I was growing up.)--JIM HOY, Emporia State University English Professor, (retired) folklorist, author of Flint Hills Cowboys.
Here is a time and place (Kansas, 1900) rigorously evoked, down to every minor character and filmic detail; and (happily) a passel of mules as real as mules get. I admit that Miss Royal herself, heading up the whole shebang, kept me up through a few nights.--MOLLY GLOSS, award-winning author of The Jump-Off Creek and The Hearts of Horses"
Miss Royal's Mules is delightful and well-crafted. I loved it!--KAREN CASEY FITZJERRELL, award-winning author of Forgiving Miss Effie Beck
Fans of Irene Bennett Brown's work will fall in love with Miss Royal's Mules. It is a delight, moving, heartbreaking, and utterly unputdownable.--CHRIS ENSS, New York Times Bestselling author, The Doctor Wore Petticoats and Hearts West.
Irene Bennett Brown gives us a protagonist worthy of the breathtaking western landscape, and the challenges of heart and mind standing between her and her dreams. Miss Royal's Mules was a joy to read.--ANN PARKER--author of the award-winning Silver Rush historical mystery series
