Journey Toward Home: Also includes bonus story: A Measure of a Man
By Carol Cox

Fans of historical fiction will enjoy these stories set in the old west. They are enjoyable and offer sweet moments as well as spiritual insights that are still relevant today.
In the first story, Journey Toward Home, Judith Alder sets out on a wagon train to meet her uncle and live with him. Her father has recently passed and her aunt’s home, where they have long lived, does not seem like home. Her aunt agrees to pa

I believe this would have been an entertaining read if the characters had been given personality or motivation, and if a number of unnecessary, unrealistic and/or preachy scenes or plot points had been left out.

Judith, as the main character, I did not care about. She had no strengths, she had no flaws, she had no motivations. She simply was. By the time I reached the end of the story, I still knew nothing about her save that she was an orphan named Judith Alder and she wanted to join her uncle

Journey Toward Home is two books in one you also get "measure of a man" the sequel of "Journey Toward Home". How are they you ask, well I am so glad you asked - thank you so much - these books are tender yet strong, poignant yet lackadaisical, fleeting yet at times a normal speed, adventurous yet calming and stable shocking yet knowing and faithful yet well faithless or seeking. It is a heartfelt story that the author wanted to tell a tale to us one that lasted a generation - the one thing that ...more

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley to read and review. Thank you NetGalley!

This duo takes place on the Double B ranch, following two generations. I very much connected with Judith from the first story, and Adam from the second one. Both characters were real and likable. Prayers offered up by Adam and Lizzie were heartfelt and inspirational, giving an insight into how each of us struggles to find our way and let God do his work in us and through our lives. This message was timely

Carol Cox writes historical novels with a humorous twist and creates an entertaining read for her fans. In this offering from Barbour Books, she has two stories make a complete narrative, and both are highly entertaining.

Journey Toward Home details the life of Judith Alder as she's moving from Missouri to New Mexico to live with her uncle instead of with her aunt. In order for her aunt to allow her to make the move, her aunt set her up to travel with a family going west in a wagon train. The wom
