I was immediately taken in by this book. It's my first book from this author and yes, I will be reading the sequel!
I totally enjoyed this historical novel of the experiences of faithful LDS as they followed the call that they were given by church leaders. It made me aware of the struggles, the faith and sometimes wavering faith as they gathered to go, to endure, to make changes and uproot themselves from their hard work.
This book was very enlightening and interesting with a very human touch as to the deep feelings and emotional and physical struggles that went on at this time. I highly recommend it!
