Book Review: In Search of Destiny
In Search of Destiny
This book starts out with a time traveler and she's returned to her home after having been with the settlers for a short time. Three different men wanted to ask her to marry.
She spoke of the big war and showed them pictures on her Ipod and camera. It seems this is a series book as I find myself a bit lost on past events that are only briefly mentioned.
Kind of like having two stories in one: One family will leave in the spring to go to Oregon and they will bring with them a freed slave. They are learning numbers and letters and will leave their newly married daughter behind-she married a local man.
Enjoyed hearing of the bartering and trading of fresh meat for baked items.
Happy to learn they take the warnings of the time traveler when packing to make the trek to Oregon. My grandson loved the computer game himself and often talks about it still. Discussions of how to take burden off the animals and how to preserve food that is lightweight would prove to be helpful.
Controversy over freeing slaves...Love sense of community and how everyone helps out another along the way and prayers around the circle on Sunday's and sometimes at night.
I received this book from The Book Club Network (bookfun.org) in exchange for my honest review
