    I love historical fiction The route the wagon train took was what I looked at when planning our trip to Colorado through the sand hills of Nebraska which the characters did by wagon It was a reality check because I looked at it and was like no way am I driving that long stretch of open nothing The challenges of the road out west were explored with likable characters and many lovable female leads It was light and good holiday read I had to take a break from the heavy Alaska sea voyage boo I love historical fiction The route the wagon train took was what I looked at when planning our trip to Colorado through the sand hills of Nebraska which the characters did by wagon It was a reality check because I looked at it and was like no way am I driving that long stretch of open nothing The challenges of the road out west were explored with likable characters and many lovable female leads It was light and good holiday read I had to take a break from the heavy Alaska sea voyage book Must have a bug to get traveling

    I enjoyed reading this book It was written in a way that kept me going on the journey It was interesting to hear about such a tough journey across country in a covered wagon The amount of hardship is almost unbelievable At one point I was wondering if any of the characters would live until the end Character development was good.

    Written in the form of a journal diary, this book brings the story of being a pioneer and part of a wagon train west to life Each chapter open with a wise quote from the journal keeps mother Home is where your heart leads you and each chapter marks a new leg of the journey.

    To want to trek from the Midwest to California in the mid 1800s took a special breed of people with a determination beyond anything I can fathom This story is told in a diary entry type format And while it is fiction it is based on the life experience of the author s ancestor I really have a deep appreciation for these early pioneers I certainly would never have ventured it, if it were me But, the west held out special dreams and promise of a better life To many it was worth the risk I di To want to trek from the Midwest to California in the mid 1800s took a special breed of people with a determination beyond anything I can fathom This story is told in a diary entry type format And while it is fiction it is based on the life experience of the author s ancestor I really have a deep appreciation for these early pioneers I certainly would never have ventured it, if it were me But, the west held out special dreams and promise of a better life To many it was worth the risk I did like this story, although I am not a fan of the diary type format or letter type format either, but I really felt the author did a good job describing the terrain and the struggle By the end of the book I felt connected to the characters and felt I knew them If you like pioneer covered wagon type stories then I recommend this book

    I didn t set out to read this entire book today, but it was just that good I so loved the characters except, of course, for the Koch family I m not a history buff, so I don t know how accurate it all is, but it felt real enough to completely steal my attention all day.BTW, this is just a book I picked up randomly off the shelf at the library while I was looking for another I m so glad it caught my eye
