Read in September, 2011

Until We Reach Home follows the journey of three orphaned Swedish sisters as they immigrate to America, and try to find a new home.

There were many struggles along the way, and even more once they reached America. Each sister had to overcome her own internal battles as well as the physical difficulties of the journey.

I enjoy historical fiction, and found the details of the journey and the procedures at Ellis Island very interesting.

One of the sisters found comfort in reading her mother's Bible, and several scriptures were quoted in the story. It would be interesting to know what version of the Bible Austin was using for these quotes-it definitely wasn't the King James version.

Penny On the copyright page in front of the book, it says the New International Version Bible was used.
