My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah by Angie Dicken
Being as it was a historical about Utah, of course, my first thought would be that it would be about Mormons as a theme, but was surprised that is was about the early Greek population. I learned a few things I didn't know. And yes there was a Greek Town in Salt Lake City, as I pass by it every day on the way to and from work. What I didn't realize was that they were prejudiced against in that time period. I have Greek friends and that never even crossed my mind.
This book was really interesting to this Utahn because it was fun to learn things about my state that I didn't know. I enjoyed it a lot and the challenges that this group of people faced taught me some very sobering facts.
This is a new author to me and I am sure I will be looking for other books she has written. Very good job!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
