Loved this book. Such and easy read and gives interesting insight into how pioneer women lived "back in the day." Enjoyed reading about each womens and mens Christian walk and how they lived it out. Encourages honesty with others and the Lord and shows what it is like to have an abiding walk with God.

You won't put it down.
I loved this book. It's one of those stories that wraps around your heart for years to come. The people in this book become like family and every trial suffered feels like one you've gone through with them. once I finished this one I could not wait to start reading the next in the series.

Lauraine Snelling is a great writer. I do enjoy her books. I was not sure I would like this series but when I read this book, I read it in one day and could not wait to see what happened in the next book. I just had to find out. The storyline flowed very well and the characters seemed so real that it felt like I was right there with them. I laughed and I cried.
