Very Moving True to History Story

Any additional comments?

This brought me to tears on more than a few occasions. The strength and endurance of these women has to be admired. The reader did an awesome job with the Scottish and English accents. This one kept me engaged through out the entire novel.

I especially liked the women character who was not a mormon and her story of her travels and care for her family. How she had strength in herself to go on! This is an inspirational story of America.
