A Home in Drayton Valley: A Book Review

About The Book:

A dream of a better life...
A tragedy aboard a wagon train...
A tentative agreement...
Will it lead to love for two seeking hearts?
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:

I am so excited to share with you another fantastic new release from one of my favorite historical fiction authors, Kim Vogel Sawyer. Without a doubt, this is one of the best I have read from this author! With each page read you are drawn into the world of 1880 New York, and all the adventures that can be found by the main characters, Tarsie and Joss. The flow of the book is seamless, with the characters and story lines very well developed throughout. I love the themes of overcoming poverty and surrendering all to God!

If you are a Sawyer fan I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
