  • Truth in advertising, I must admit that I wrote this book. It's the first in a series of historical western romances set in California's Central Coast. I am president-elect of Women Writing the West and it's important to me that women's voices are heard. This series (Maria Ines is the next in line, for release in late 2014,) honors Indian, Spanish, Mexican and American women who lived in early California. My writing style is relentlessly persistent. I move the action with gritty, well-researched [...]


  • After the death of her mother, and her grieving father’s spiral into addiction, a young girl is being raised by a gruff but soft hearted ranch-hand and a weary overworked Indian woman. Set in the 1870’s in the inland valleys of California’s Central Coast, Cholama Moon begins with an attention grabbing wild horse round up during a land shifting earthquake. From there, author Anne Schroeder takes you through the turbulent times facing families who want to tame this land. Virginia Nugent (Gin [...]


  • When she was three years old, Ginny Nugent’s mother died, and so did her loving home. Cholama Moon by Anne Schroeder tells Ginny’s story in this late 1800's novel which takes place in a remote section of southeastern Monterey County, California.Ginny has a loyal friend in an old cowhand, Sancho Roos. When her father, Charlie Nugent, doesn’t provide the nurturing his daughter needs, Sancho is there for her. What is lacking--a well-kept home, proper clothes, schooling, the things a growing g [...]


  • This author delivers. If you are a fan of Historical fiction sent in the western part of the united states, then you must read this book. The author delivers a compassionate and sensitive story about a young girl, Ginny, who grows up on a ranch with a father so wracked with grief that he descends into addiction that results in neglect.Her characters are multidimensional, even those that are antagonistic, you feel for them as they struggled to settle a valley and ranch. Cholama is where the epice [...]


  • Plucky is an old-fashioned word but it certainly applies to the lead character in Cholama Moon. It’s 1865 in the Choloma Valley of Central California and we meet Ginnie, a motherless child living on a remote struggling ranch. The California of the day was a place of vast empty spaces and little refinement. With her father emotionally absent, Ginnie is left to raise herself with a little help from Sancho, one of the ranch hands. Given little to eat and the barest amount of clothing, Ginnie deve [...]


  • I loved this book. When I first started reading "Cholama Moon", I thought it would be a slow read. However, after only a few pages the story began. I couldn't put the book down. I enjoyed the historical facts about the land and the homesteaders struggle to make a home and a life in that area of California. I loved the story of a little girl trying to find her place in all that happens to her. I will share this book with my friends and hope they enjoy it as much as I did.


  • This debut novel by Anne Schroeder is, as the new phrase says, "unputdownable"! I applaud the obvious research into place and time, the storyline kept me riveted from start to finish, and I fell in love with Ginny in this coming-of-age saga. I didn't want it to end, and I'm already looking forward to Anne's next novel!


  • I enjoyed reading this historical novel about the Cholama Valley in Central California in the late 1800's. I was most impressed with Anne's descriptive writing. She helped me to smell, taste, see, and feel what life was like in that day and age; she is a master at dialogue as well. "Miguelito's silver spurs clinked against his soft leather bookshis yellow scarf caught the breeze."
