Publisher's Summary

Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position. Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in Oregon Country, she decides to stay rather than push on.

    "Well written, but ..."

    The story flows well and gives a wonderful glimpse of life during that time. Some parts were almost too harsh to bear. The clear voice of Ms Cozart is much appreciated.

    "Cassandra Campbell is an awesome narrator."

    I'll be looking for audible books with Cassandra Campbell as the narrator. She does an awesome job.

    Story
    "Treasured Grace, apt play on words"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The naturalness of the portrayal of life intertwined with faith was refreshing.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    The painting of a historical picture of life on the frontier: hardship, fulfillment, death, love, hope, was both believable and fascinating. In the context of normal, but courageous people, the author showed the struggle of some of the pioneers of this great country. With faith and hope individuals ventured into a better future.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The descriptions of conflict between the pioneers and the native people portrayed believable injustices and misunderstandings that contributed to blood shed and sorrow. Hardships of pioneer life were well portrayed, as were rewards and fulfillments.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The narrator appeared inexperienced to give adequate expression to the power of the story.

    Story
    "A historical novel with Christian values"

    Grace, the eldest sister, is charged with caring for her younger sisters after their parents death. She uses the traditions of her mother and grandmother to serve others .

    Although there are Oregon Trail events and situations that depicted history, the typical happy ever after ending was not typical of real life.

    "Great but...."

    Narrator was the best I have heard. Writer's use of "nodded" was distracting for audible.

    Story
    "Sounds more like children's book"

    The story line of the book is okay; more like Christian book for children. The author made an excellent use of the Bible and applied its principles in the story. However, the narrator did a poor job. Considering the fact that the setting of the story is in the 1800s Far West, ascent and Lingual Franca of the narrative must also match. Overall I give it 3 stars for attempting

    Story
    "Depressing until at least Ch. 16, so most of book."
    Any additional comments?

    Good performance, good narration, but book is very depressing until at least Ch. 16 when it starts turning around. Not a feel-good story, but a depressing story of Indian massacre. Ended okay. Not too much grizzly detail, which is good, but mostly just sober and depressing.
