From My Library
I just finished this book and want to tell you that it was such a good read. It is historical fiction, set in the 1800's and an accurate portrayal of Pioneer Life. I have read other books by Kim Vogel Sawyer and love her way with words; she truly is a beautiful writer. The story is about three friends who leave New York and head for Kansas via Wagon Train; not just any Wagon Train but one that carried black families. The plot surrounds a young woman named Tarsie who promises her best friend to care for her children and husband as her friend battles cancer. The characters were rich and developed and the struggle of prejudice is woven throughout the story. This was a book I didn't want to put down; Kim has become one of my favorite authors. I look forward to more of Kim's stories! You won't be disappointed by this book; if you haven't read any of Kim's books, be on the lookout for them-she is a great writer.
I would like to say Thank You to Bethany House Publishers for sending me this book to review. I received no compensation for it and was asked to review it, whether my feelings were positive or negative.
