Annie Pinkerton Boone Newcastle's wedding night is, well, memorable. One minute she's arrived from Iowa to the practically barbarian Arizona Territory for a pre-arranged marriage, the next her newly acquired--and much older--husband expires just after the honeymoon has begun, leaving Annie without funds, and the sole support of his two elderly relatives. To make matters worse, the dead geezer has the unmitigated gall to take up residence inside Annie's body.

However, the ghost of Jonas Newcastle makes himself useful by channeling vital information from the great beyond through Annie. The somewhat bewildered widow quickly earns a reputation as a seer, and soon she's sharing Jona's psychic "hints" with the public. The once impoverished widown becomes a celebrated figure, but even "Prophet Annie" cannot foresee all the raucous adventures and passionate fulfillment the future holds for her.

As with "Leaving Missouri," this book blends authentic characters from the time with an enjoyable plot that reminds you that our history is full of unique individuals, and I think gives a good perspective on the mind of a typical woman of her day who's thrust into completely unexpected circumstances. Funny and touching, and Annie grows up throughout the book as she realizes that she needs to be in control of her life and destiny. Loved that the Jukes clan was included in this one.

I was truly sorry to learn of Ellen Recknor's death. I've thoroughly enjoyed both of her books that I've read, and am sorry that there only appears to be one more out there more to read.

Annie is a young woman who is essentially sold into marriage with a supposedly wealthy old geezer. After he expires on her wedding night, he takes up residence in Annie's mind and body and begins "prophesying" wild tales of the future. After Annie finds out that her husband's wealth is depleted she joins a circus side show. This book is so hilarious (there is a great scene where Jonas takes over Annie's body and has her sing "Roxanne" while doing a striptease!). The future does look rather ridiculous from the point of view of a young lady of the west. All of the characters are very well drawn, and it's easy to become attached to them. I can't remember enjoying a book more.

With PROPHET ANNIE, I discovered a new favorite author. Annie Newcastle is a sassy, hilarious heroine with a distinctive voice. This book reminded me of one of Larry McMurtry's funnier westerns because it combined humor and pathos. The characters and dialogue are priceless. I especially loved Sam Two Trees' dry wit. I'm heartbroken that Ms. Recknor's earlier efforts seem to be out of print (What is Avon thinking???) but I'm off to search for them in an out-of-print store. After reading PROPHET ANNIE, I would definitely buy anything this author writes--paperback or hardcover--as soon as it hits the shelves because you just don't discover a treasure like this very often.

HAVING READ RECKNORS TWO EARLIER BOOKS, "LEAVING MISSOURI" AND& "ME AND THE BOYS", I HAD MORE THAN AN IDLE INTEREST IN SEEING WHAT SHE HAD IN STORE THIS TIME AROUND. HERE IS A WRITER WITH A PROFOUND MASTERY OF LANGUAGE AND HUMOR AND WHO HAS AN UNEQUALED ABILITY TO PULL THE READER INTO HER STORIES EARLY ON.I FOUND "PROPHET ANNIE" TO BE A VERY INTERESTING STORY WITH A NOVEL APPROACH TO DEALING WITH DEATH THROUGH HUMOR AND AS WITH BOTH PREVIOUS BOOKS, I WAS UNABLE TO PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I WAS SURE OF THE OUTCOME.IF YOU'VE NEVER READ ANYTHING BY ELLEN RECKNOR, AND YOU ENJOY STORIES WITH A WESTERN THEME AND A HEAVY DOSE OF HUMOR, THEN "PROPHET ANNIE" IS JUST WHAT YOU'VE BEEN MISSING. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THIS WRITER COMES UP WITH NEXT...........

Fast moving, exciting and extremely funny.......There is no other way to describe Ellen Recknors' latest book, "PROPHET ANNIE". This writer has taken the age old fear of ghosts and put a new and interesting twist to it......Anyone and everyone who enjoys a tale of the old west with a heavy dose of comedy should pick up this book and read it....Keep up the good work Ellen.....

This is my second Recknor book. I find her to be one of the freshest most original writers that I've read in a long time. Her plots are unconventional, yet convincing. She's utterly enjoyable from start to finsih. I love her "bad guys." I can't wait for her next book!
This is the story of an extraordinary woman's journey from girlhood to maturity, and it's one of the funniest, most original, most touching books of the year. Some scenes made me laugh, others made me laugh through my tears, and I closed the book with a sigh of delight!
