One More River To Cross

Jane Kirkpatrick hit another one out of the park.  It's not a light read.  It's difficult at times but you have to turn the page to find out what happens next. The story is about a wagon train that left Missouri going to California. Winter arrived and decisions had to be made.  This is based on a real event.

The women were "being controlled by domineering men. " They basically had no say in decisions that impacted their futures.   They were at their mercy.  This was in 1844. This did not sit well with them.

This wonderful book demonstrates courage, strength and determination.  As you read you question yourself as to what you would do?  I loved seeing the growth of the characters as they are faced with situations that could make or break them.  I became part of their family as I got to know them as they shared their stories. 

Beautiful story.  Heartwarming. 

I received this free to review from Revell.
