Jane Kirkpatrick is a great novelist and this book was a great one. She captures her readers not only by her storytelling,but by the way she writes. Although this book was fictionalized, she gave her readers an inside view of what it was like to live in three different eras and how those women survived ordeals and being away from family.
This book had me hooked and I really enjoyed the book and will read it again. Most of all it had me wondering how these women felt being alive back then and how they dealt with their hardships.
Hardships are a way of life, but they help us grow stronger and appreciate what we have compared to others who live in extreme and difficult areas in other countries. Take Haiti for example and what soem of those people are now going through as a result of the earthquake that happened in January of 2010.
These women all appreciated what brought them together and how God rescued them from difficult situations and how good came out of each one.
Read this book and see for yourself how God can perform miracles out of difficult situations and how they grew stonger with their loved ones besides them.
I do recommend this book cause it is based on true stories(although fictionalized) and is a great one to read.

Really good story. Jane does a good job of melding the history of the Big Muddy with fictional characters. As one who has lived in Oregon all my life, the story of the Rajneesh cult and the rebirth of the ranch was interesting and inspirational-I had a hard time putting this book down!
