it was amazing
bookshelves: historical, youth
Read in August, 2007

Ran across the summary on a bib and tracked down the book. I couldn't put it down! I absolutely adored Charlotte and loved following her story. I did keep forgetting that she was only 13, but that's a minor quibble. It was so well characterized and written, I may track it down to buy and share with Claire, who also loves history.

It was a pioneer story, which I've been itching to read more of lately, but it was the story of Mormon immigrants, walking with their handcarts to Utah. Not a story I'm well familiar with, and I appreciated the insight into the religion and the followers. I'd have liked to read more about these characters.
