The Good Journeyby Micaela Gilchrist
Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by actual letters, andlt;Iandgt;The Good Journeyandlt;/Iandgt; breathes life into history with a richly imagined chronicle of twenty tumultuous years in the marriage of two American pioneers. andlt;BRandgt; Strong-willed Southern belle Mary Bullitt abandons her life of luxury in Louisville, Kentucky, when she marries General Henry Atkinson and accompanies him to his outpost on the Mississippi. Nothing has prepared her for marriage to this attractive older man — or for the realities of frontier living. Conditions are primitive, Mary knows virtually nothing about her husband, and the threat of attack from Indians is constant. A rough and resourceful general, Henry is engaged in a long and historic clash with a great Native American leader, and his deeply conflicted feelings about Indians mirror those he and his wife have for each other. andlt;BRandgt; In the tradition of Willa Cather and Edna Ferber, Micaela Gilchrist has crafted an exciting novel that is at once a love story and an action-packed depiction of the struggle for the West.
"Like that very good Civil War novel Cold Mountain...[The Good Journey] tells a historical story through the eyes of a memorable character. An absorbing and moving read." Yvonne Crittenden, The Toronto Sun
