Read in February, 2011

I was anxious to read this because I also have ancestors who travelled across the sea to America as Mormons looking for a better life. It gave me a glimpse into how it might have been and how it felt to be persecuted for your religious beliefs. It's interesting that Mima's mother joined the church, but Mima didn't. Gives a great perspective for the story. Can't wait for the next two books!
