This is the most unrealistic, unbelievable book that I have ever read, I think. I liked all the characters. Really nice people. However, I could not begin to figure how a young girl with her infant baby could manage the trip across the Oregon Trail, caring for her animals, her wagon, her belongings, and her friends' illnesses and have everything go so well for her. She planted, hoed, laid fences, helped build her house ( with help, I acknowledge) baked, cooked, cleaned, hostessed the neighbors and friends, counseled, cared for her child, milked the cow, etc. etc. etc.
Two men cared for her, but that conveniently solved when one of them took himself our of the running, and simply left her life. Even the helper that was fleeing his own ghosts (he had killed a man) just happened to be in the right place at the right time, to find out that he was not a murderer. Everyone seemed to have a pretty charmed life.
One might get the idea that our forefathers....and "foremothers" just hopped a wagon train to a nicer, happier life with little hardship. There were some hard moments, but except for a couple of characters, it was a happy ending for all. Really? I doubt it. Never have I read a book with more lovely and polite folks.
After all this, I confess that I finished the book, and can recommend it to anyone who likes stories where there is little tension, and lots of happy endings.
If you are looking to read a well-written 1800's themed Western, try "Land of My Heart" by Tracie Peterson. Possibly Ms. Gracie herself might even gain some understanding of what makes a good novel if she were to read it.
