Diamond in the Rough is a nice book and I enjoyed reading it. The story begins with a neat beginning. I like Lily Rose, Diamond and the Pinkerton agent. They are all strong characters and they blend together very nicely.
This book has a lot to do with being prejudice to people that are different from you and teaches a great lesson. Just because someone is different doesn’t make them inferior to you or less of a person. That doesn’t only represent the Indians in Diamond in the Rough it also is about Lily Rose’s Moms past and Diamonds. It speaks to us all.
I really did like the ending of this wonderful book. I recommend Diamond in the Rough for an easy afternoon read.
