    She is another one of my favorite authors. This book deals with the Mormon migration to SLC but is more a story about the ties of female friendships , survival and testing of our faith.

      In July of 1856, a group of 650 immigrants, all recent Mormon converts, heeded Brigham Young's call and embarked on a 1,300-mile westward trek from Iowa to the new "Zion," in what is now Salt Lake City, Utah. Hauling their worldly possessions in crudely fashioned handcarts, few of the settlers reached their destination alive.

      I think most everyone knows about the westward migration via wagon train but I admit that I had never heard of the Mormon handcart pioneers until I read a summary of Sandra Dallas new novel, True Sisters.
