But she seemed attracted to the bad boy type of men. What are your thoughts? Do you think she was misguided by men maybe? Good morning Linda- wow what a great blog. You always amaze me with your great history lessons. She does seem to have some compassion, but then to just give her children to her mom to raise, that sounds to me like she just wanted freedom and no responsibility. Very intriguing story.
I hope you have a great day. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Love you Sister friend. Hi Miss Tonya……. And to give her children up makes her sound self-centered. Maybe she was protecting her children. He did beat her. I think she definitely was misled by men, she reminds me of myself when I was younger. I wanted to break free of the binds of my life and I think she did too. She definitely had spunk and a wild streak, but also a conscience as she gave money back to the stagecoach passengers.
I would like to think that she learned from her mistakes and returned to her children. Hi Miss Dale……. I agree. Every time he beat her up she left but then she went back when he promised to treat her right. Sounds like some abusers today. You know, maybe Pearl did go get her children after she got out of prison and raised them. That would certainly redeem her. Have a blessed week! Very interesting blog. She definitely used her witts and female advantages to get out of trouble. I guess she was just attracted to the bad guys and doing wrong.
Its sad that she wasted her background and education to go bad. The biggest thing that caught my attention here was the 30 year sentence Joe Boot received. Dearest Stephanie…….
