This Road We TraveledThis Road We Traveled by Jane Kirkpatrick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another wonderful story based on real pioneers who suffered to build the United States of America. Jane Kirkpatrick brings these characters to life in her own insightful way. The reader journeys with the characters, surviving things we present-day hot-house lilies would not. She takes us back to a time when there were no “safe spaces” and people worked together – really *worked* – to build their own futures. Not romanticized history, it’s gritty and real.

Tabitha Brown won’t be left behind when her grown children move their families across the country from Missouri to Oregon by wagon train. At the age of 66, she embarks on a trail that will leave many unmarked graves in its wake. Determination and faith in God, together with an independent streak so vital to our pioneers, Tabby survives to help other survivors settle Oregon.

Inspiring story that’s well worth reading.
