"This book is not for the faint of heart The accuracy and true to life account of what the early settlers of America went through will wrench your heart. The amount of research that obviously went into the writing of this novel is great and shows in the fluidity of the story. This author pulled from research records and turned the oft times, dry, two dimensional lives found in historical documents into a story of great sorrow and triumph over the hardships immigrants to America faced every day."
