Little description: Drama, Adventure, and Family Struggles Abound as Three Generations Head West on the Oregon Trail
When Tabitha Brown’s son makes the fateful decision to leave Missouri and strike out for Oregon, she refuses to be left behind. Despite her son’s concerns, Tabitha hires her own wagon to join the party. Along with her reluctant daughter and her ever-hopeful granddaughter, the intrepid Tabitha has her misgivings. But family ties are stronger than fear.
The trials they face along the way will severely test Tabitha’s faith, courage, and ability to hope.

My thoughts: 3 stars out of 5
Jane Kirkpatrick introduced a very strong woman, who dared to travel to the little-known lands in her senior ages. Tabitha Brown knows the risks of moving to another place can be dangerous, but staying alone in Missouri didn’t sit with her well. She embraced the long journey only to be close to her family: her son, daughter-in-law, and grandchild.
The author starts with a breathtaking introduction, where Tabitha is in danger of dying, being frozen to death in the snow . But excitement didn’t last long for me, even though the book presented great characters and beginning setting was eye-catching, I lost interest in the next chapter.
