Rated 5 out of 5 by from stubborn love!... great book!... well written story of struggle and triumph on the western frontier!...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Beach Book or Bed Book Written by a Montrealer. I call these types of books a beach book or bed book since they are easy to pick up and put down while on vacation, but also written well enough to keep your attention. Written to be "epic-like" this story follows a family through several generations. i picked it up on a whim and i was surprised by it as it entertained and followed a well-thought out story line. I think men and women alike would enjoy it but it is not deep literature by any means.
