This Road We Traveled - A Book Review

Tabitha Brown refuses to be left behind in Missouri when her son makes the decision to strike out for Oregon - even if she has to hire her own wagon to join the party. After all, family ties are stronger than fear.

Along with her reluctant daughter and her ever hopeful granddaughter, the intrepid Tabitha has her misgivings.  The trials they face along the way will severely test her faith, courage, and ability to hope.  With her family's survival on the line, she must make the ultimate sacrifice, plunging deeper into the wilderness to seek aid.  What she couldn't know was how this frightening journey would impact how she understood her own life and the greater part she had to play in history.

Ever since I was a young girl I have enjoyed reading about the Oregon trail.  I absolutely loved This Road We Traveled by Jane Kirkpatrick.  She has taken my favorite historic time period and written a beautiful story of love, hope and faith.  The journey continues beyond the trail and there is plenty of adventure to be told once they arrive in Oregon.

There is so much history in this book and so much I did not realize about this time period.  This was one of those books that left me thinking about it well after I finished the last page.  If you are a history lover this book is definitely for you!  I think you will be very pleased, as you read about how it was like from a woman's prospective.

***Thanks to Revell Reads for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
