Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position. Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in Oregon Country, she decides to stay rather than push on.

Cassandra Campbell is an awesome narrator.

Treasured Grace, apt play on words
The naturalness of the portrayal of life intertwined with faith was refreshing.
The painting of a historical picture of life on the frontier: hardship, fulfillment, death, love, hope, was both believable and fascinating. In the context of normal, but courageous people, the author showed the struggle of some of the pioneers of this great country. With faith and hope individuals ventured into a better future.
The descriptions of conflict between the pioneers and the native people portrayed believable injustices and misunderstandings that contributed to blood shed and sorrow. Hardships of pioneer life were well portrayed, as were rewards and fulfillments.
The narrator appeared inexperienced to give adequate expression to the power of the story.
