 truly wonderful book!!, November 10, 1999
By Mae

I couldn't put this book down. It really made me think of how it would have been at that time. With families struggling and working together to stay close and together, they really had to rely on each other. They, like the pioneers, realized how lucky and blessed they were. I can't wait to read the next in the series.

Great series, very educational, September 26, 2008
By Amber

I borrowed this whole set from my father-in-law and devoured it in a very short time. I learned so much about this era and developed a love for the characters as if they were real people. I cried many times while reading these and gained a much greater appreciation for "the Greatest Generation."

Dean Hughes is an excellent writer!, November 04, 2008
By Christine

These books are great! I have 13 of his books and enjoy every one. I especially enjoyed the Children of promise series. I would recommend these to anyone!
