    This is one of those books I read over and over and over again when I was in my late single and early double digit years As a future history degree holder, I was captivated by the story of a family facing the hardships of the move west I loved the innocent romance between characters, and the drama of Abigail, the protagonist, having to move outside her comfort zone in many ways from the difficulty of life on the move, to needing to help her sister in law give birth This book is perfectly safe for younger folks, but manages to not gloss over the reality of the situation too much.

    A solid coming of age novel in which our heroine joins America s western migration in an attempt to find her father According to my reading journals, I first read this book a decade ago It must have made an impact, because once I got started, I remembered specific events and scenes clearly Although there aren t any truly standout areas, the plotting, characterizations, dialogue, and development are all well done This is a good read.

    This is a Young Adult novel, and really I can see it having appeal to young girls pre teen to maybe 14 It gave a good sense of what it might have been like to travel west during the gold rush, and what life might have been like on the trail The prose was good enough to keep me reading to the end, but some of the descriptions were a little off and the plot was pretty predictable Still, I enjoyed the characters and as a debut novel, Murrow did a pretty good job.

    This book reminded me of another favorite book of mine, The Singing Boones However, there was a little bit fighting and less camaraderie in it It is likely much accurate, but included slight references to how they might treat a single young women on their own during the gold rush Pregnancy was not supposed to be mentioned, but it seemed death was around the corner at every turn This would be a good book to read for a high schooler, studying the Western expansion and the Gold Rush.

    This is another older book found on my shelves that I reread I actually enjoyed it though if I had any desire to travel west in a covered wagon, it s definitely gone There s a sequel, Fire in the Heart, so if you liked this one, check out the sequel.

    I remember reading this book in middle school and loving it Wanted to revisit it Pretty good YA novel of a family s trip west during the Gold Rush Grim occasionally, but realistic.
