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.

Depressing until at least Ch. 16, so most of book.
Good performance, good narration, but book is very depressing until at least Ch. 16 when it starts turning around. Not a feel-good story, but a depressing story of Indian massacre. Ended okay. Not too much grizzly detail, which is good, but mostly just sober and depressing.
