I like the history that I have read in these books. It is hard to imagine the women of today living like a lot of those women did. It also spoke of women trading quilt patterns, for example in wagon trains and when meeting new women. As a quilter I find that very interesting.

I do like Linda Hubalek books.
This book is based on the story of Maggie Kennedy who followed her brothers to Kansas in the 1850's. She was the great-great-grandmother of the author. It is told in letters written to her sister in Ohio and follows the trials and troubles of the Lawrence, Kansas area before and during the Civil War.
OK, after 2, the 3rd one needed a little more, and it was way historical, not as much fiction. Learned alot about the effects of the Civil War on Kansas. Other than that, not too compelling. Same style of letter writing, so it did not really distinguish each of the women writing the letters of each book.
Last of the series, enjoyed the entire series. Pioneer history is one of my favorite subjects, and this book opened me up to more civil war history as did the other two in the series.
The third in the series.

Linda Hubalek grew up on the Kansas prairie, always wanting to be a farmer like her parents and ancestors. After earning a college degree in Agriculture, marriage took Linda away from Kansas as her husband worked in engineering jobs in several states.

Meanwhile, Linda wrote about pioneer women that homesteaded in Kansas between 1854 to the early 1900s, especially her Swedish immigrant ancestors. He
