Picked up at a library sale.

Just finished this one this morning. A very interestingtale of one family as they travel to the Colorado Territory. I have loved all of Sandra Dallas' other books and this one is no exception.

Journal Entry 8 by wingNancyNovawing at Lansdale, Pennsylvania USA on Saturday, May 26, 2018
from the convention; Mattie is shocked when Luke asks her to marry him and move west to his homestead in Colorado. They arrive at their praire home with assorted other homesteaders, a sod house (with a single real glass window) and years of hardship. Along the way, Mattie learns that she was second best & Luke is still being persued by the city girl Persia. A few more twists and turns, but ultimately Mattie, who has also strayed, stay together as we learn from a descendent finding this diary, which was written in cross hatch style to conserve paper - write regular, then turn sideways and write over the first writing - quite a time to decipher that!

If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it. Then, when you are ready, pass it along for someone else to enjoy! Thanks and happy reading!
