Dubbed by Jane Smiley a “quintessential American voice”, Sandra Dallas has won over fans everywhere and become a frequent fixture on the New York Times best-seller list. Based on 19th-century history, True Sisters follows four women who pin their hopes for the future on a plan devised by Brigham Young to bring emigrants to Salt Lake City. Pushing two-wheeled handcarts loaded with all their life’s belongings, the women set off on the 1,300-mile journey from Iowa City - and soon become fast friends even as perils mount around them.

Very Moving True to History Story
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.
Inspiring tale, great historical fiction!
The strength of the women in the tale and the constant adversities.
Crossing the river with their handcarts in the below freezing temperatures.
Perserverance through Adversity
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.
