User reviews
Tamzen by the same writer is one of my favorite books--I re-read it every few years, as I do The RainCrow. This led me to look for other works of Jane Gilmore Rushing. Mary Dove must be her beginning effort as a novelist. I found the book plodding and slow, the revelations predictable, and the ending a bit of a surprise. This author's writing hits a better stride in later books.
I read this bookalmost 40 years ago. Yes, it's that old. It says something about the author and the book that i chose to look it up now. I remember being touched deeply about this story. I was always a romance reader but this was different and not what I expected from a Scholastic school book selection. It was my first interracial story; I didn't even know such stories existed. I can remember thinking the heroine VERY sheltered and naive but the softness of the story hooked me in. To be honest, I'm not sure I understood everything that went on, I was only a couple of years into teen-hood; but it had an innocence I could identify with. Don't get me wrong, there are some harsh things that happen but I wanted more. Now that I'm a jaded hag, just thinking about it brings me to the days when I was still fresh and unknowing. I loved this book and would recommend it to any young woman who has a romantic heart and is old enough to understand the bitterness that can come with it.
Beautifully and simply written, you can almost hear the birdsong and feel the wind from Rushing's prose. It's easy to care deeply for the few characters in this book, especially the innocent, honest, and kind Mary Dove. Mary Dove is about society's rules, wilderness being overtaken by civilization, but most of all kindness and love. This is a "non-Western" Western; I highly recommend it.
The likes of this story have never been seen before, and most assuredly will never be forgotten. This is the missing piece of work that now completes the art of literature. The world of human emotion is viewed in it's most powerful, provocative energy for the first time. The ultimate fuel for the hungry soul, "Mary Dove" will ignite a fire inside you, that even time can not extinguish.
