    There was nothing about this book I did not like. It was a showcase of how the southerners lived right after the Civil War only I didn't know that it was so hard. It was interesting to see how these southern bells learned to make the trip west day by day. There was nothing they couldn't do toward the end of the journey and they were proud of themselves. My only concern with this book was: How, when you are 250 wagons and have no contact with anyone outside of your group, does one person come dow There was nothing about this book I did not like.

My only concern with this book was: How, when you are 250 wagons and have no contact with anyone outside of your group, does one person come down with the flu? Of course many did after that but I didn't understand how that happened but it did add interest to the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who's interested in life after the Civil War and how people who were totally unprepared joined a wagon train and make the trip to Kansas and started their lives as farmers on they're newly purchased parcel of land. I wonder if any of us today could make that trip as they did. Read it, it's an interesting book.

    All I want is MORE!!! This would be the great start of a series. What will Louisa do next? What was Sarah's viewpoint through the "adventure?" Loved the story for the hardships, love, loss and triumphs. Only covered a year span if a wild journey that was in my mind just beginning. All I want is MORE!!!

    Love, Loss, and Hope No doubt we all know how difficult it is to start over. This author gets the opportunity to take us on an adventure as a Southern Family leaves Georgia to make a new life on the Prairie of West Kansas. Enjoy.

    Couldn't put it done Really liked the progression of the story. It made me feel like I could be sitting around a campfire and someone was verbally telling a story about their grandparents or great grandparents.

    A very interesting book set in the 1800’s in Atlanta, right after the Civil War. A Southern family goes West in hopes of rebuilding their lives, and meet many challenges along the way. I highly recommend this book.

    Historical romance at its best! Times were hard for a lot of people after the Civil War. People had to be very brave to move West. It was always hard on the women. I would have liked it better if the mother hadn’t died. I like happy endings.

    Almost Like a Slave This is a very well book written by Katherine St. Clair and I really enjoyed reading it. After the Civil War, losing everything, wagon train going west, love, hate, marriage and finding love at last. If you want more buy the book and enjoy reading.

    Good story This book has so many grammatical errors. Was it not proofread? Almost every page had some sort of errors. Mostly missing words.

    A. Good story about the trek west. The time of the settling of the west is one of my favorite periods in our history. Such courage and hard work!
