.""Ophelia’s War tells the riveting life story of Ophelia Oatman, an orphaned Mormon girl coming of age and fighting for physical and spiritual survival on the 19th-century Utah frontier. A truly compelling novel of moral exile and self-redemption. Enthusiastically recommended

"McLennan ably handles her characters and their crises, though her skill as a writer is most evident in the novel’s third part, when the plot keenly unfurls. With moral ambiguity and questionable intentions, the cast lends a disconcerting air to McLennan’s solid debut.
A dark, violent story with a heart." - Kirkus Reviews
"I received this novel from NetGalley.
This short novel was an intriguing read. I enjoyed the plot, the characters and the fact that the characters were so intertwined based on their hometowns alone.
This novel is well written, well researched and definitely worth the read, its protagonists are relatable, antagonists are easily liked and easily hates, a perfect mixture of the two.
This was a fun novel to read and is definitely for any fans of crime fiction, gang-land activities or anyone looking for a shorter interesting read."
"GREAT READ!!! I loved this book. The author sets the scene, gets to the point and vividly describes what is happening. It is fast moving, and is actually a sometimes tough, but overall lovely story. It portrays real life in the rough parts of Boston experienced by people who have fallen onto tough times, yet the strength within the young woman carries it through to a triumphant. The formatting of the book is great with short chapters that kept me totally locked in. It's one of those books that I missed when I had finished it!"
