The Start of a Great Journey
4 stars By Margot, Nov 21 2014
Starting out in Kentucky in 1854, this is the best "wagons west" book I've read for ages. Melody Carlson somehow manages to portray the monotony of long months on the trail, the camaraderie and sense of community amongst the travelers, and the potential for crisis and tragedy, all in a lovely package that is easy to read. We come to know Elizabeth Martin and her two children, her parents, and her brothers as if they were our own family. It is not endless boredom, it is not crisis after crisis, but somehow a finely balanced mix of both, with deep characters and life-lessons thrown in for good measure. Looking forward to completing the series.
