My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah by Angie Dicken

I was really excited to read this book, being a Utahn and so was thrilled to have a chance to review it.

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.
