Join Andrea Carter for more adventures in nineteenth-century California!

The independent tomboy Andrea Carter and her beloved horse, Taffy, were first introduced in Andrea Carter and the Long Ride Home in 2005. Since then, popular author Susan Marlow has penned five more books in the Circle C Adventures series, filled in Andi s early years with the Circle C Beginnings series, and started a chronicle of Andrea s teen years in Circle C Milestones.

Published to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this positive role model for girls, Andrea Carter s Tales from the Circle C Ranch is a collection of short stories inspired by fan questions that fills in many of the gaps between Circle C Beginnings and Circle C Adventures. Taking place between 1873 and 1880, each story is prefaced by an explanatory note that pinpoints the action of the story in relation to events in the existing Andrea Carter books.

Wholesome fun, and with a clear Christian message throughout, Andrea Carter s Tales from the Circle C Ranch is a must-read for fans of the series and a fun introduction for those who haven t yet discovered these historical gems.

ANDREA CARTER’S TALES FROM THE CIRCLE C RANCH is a whole bunch of short stories based on questions that readers asked about other books they’ve read. Basically it’s a collection of stories behind the stories.

Some of them are funny, some of them are serious. I feel I missed a lot because I didn’t read all of the books. It makes me want to go back and find the books I missed and read them.

I enjoyed ANDREA CARTER’S TALES FOR THE CIRCLE C RANCH a lot and I recommend it to other fans of Ms. Marlow’s books who want to know more about the books and the characters.

Available in paperback. 160 pages.
