News of the World

News of the World by Paulette Jiles was a quick read, but only meh. The premise was interesting: Captain Kidd travels through Texas, giving newspaper readings to people who are hungry for the news. Along the way, he is given $50 to transport a young orphan (taken by Kiowa raiders who killed her parents and sister and raised her as their own) back to her family. The book is the story of that transport. For those who like quiet, historical, well-told tales, this would be a hit. For me, it didn’t hit the mark.
