    4.5 out of 5 stars 560

A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon - from child to determined young adult to loving mother.

Would you try another book from Nancy E. Turner and/or Amy Rubinate?

I will definitely read another book by Nancy E. Turner. I will never purchase another book narrated by Amy Rubinate.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's voice was quite slow, with a strong nasal sound, combined with a somewhat forced accent at times. It was very distracting from the story, and made it quite difficult to get through the book.

Any additional comments?

I will never purchase another book with this narrator.
