One of my all-time favorites!!! And my very fav. of Susan Evans McCloud. I love how she captures the pioneer spirit of not only this this girl, but all the people living in that time. Also, there are many books written about the Mormon pioneers before or during their trek, but this one did such a beautiful job in describing life in the settlements, and I loved that perspective. Just a beautiful story! One I will re-read again and again!
Like many of the early latter-day saints, the Jonsson family makes the trek to Zion. Not only that--they must learn to speak English. I had never thought that these pioneers would hold such prejudices having also immigrated here. Anna and Owen's story is a bit like "Romeo and Juliet", but with a happy ending.
