A Home in Drayton Valley

Book description:  "Hoping to escape the poor conditions of 1880 New York, Tarsie Raines and her friends Joss and Mary Brubacher and their two children set off for Kansas aboard an unusual wagon train.  But when tragedy strikes on the trip across the prairie, Tarsie is thrown into a partnership with Joss that leaves them both questioning God and their plans for the future.

As their funds dwindle and nothing goes as planned, will they give up and go their separate ways?  Or will God use their time in Drayton Valley in a way they never expected."

My review:  There are so many emotions in this book.  Kim Vogel Sawyer jumps into several deep issues with a theme of trusting God throughout.  At the beginning of the book, I did not like Joss a whole lot.  As I continued to read he seemed to grow on me, and by the end of the book I was cheering for him to make the right decisions.  This is a story with depth.  Anyone that likes historical fiction would enjoy reading this book.  I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
