Book Review - A Home In Drayton Valley by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Publisher's blurb:                                     A dream of a better life...
A tragedy aboard a wagon train...
A tentative agreement...

Will it lead to love for two seeking hearts? Hoping to escape the poor conditions of 1880 New York, Tarsie Raines and her friends Joss and Mary Brubacher and their two children set off for Kansas aboard an unusual wagon train. But when tragedy strikes on the trip across the prairie, Tarsie is thrown into a partnership with Joss that leaves them both questioning God and their plans for the future.

As their funds dwindle and nothing goes as planned, will they give up and go their separate ways? Or will God use their time in Drayton Valley in a way they never expected?

My review: I found this book a tad unrealistic at parts, but it may have been true to the times. I liked the various characters in the story. It flowed well and was an easy read. I would recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book.

You should do a post on what you have been up too? Haven't heard from you in a while?
