Jeane, July 11, 2008 (view all comments by Jeane)
This is an awe-inspiring story of one woman's courage, stamina and ability to acquire whatever new skills were necessary in her new life. Denton does a wonderful job of depicting her great-great grandmother's experiences of crossing the ocean in a ship and traveling in a wagon train, overcoming numerous hardships. Unfortunately, soon after arrival in Utah, the diary upon which this book is largely based falls silent for seventeen years. After that space of time, she left the church and moved to California. Denton filled in the gap with plenty of reasons why. You must read this book with a grain of salt, as it is heavily opinionated- by the author.
