    One thought on “A Long Way to Go”

    1. Reviewed for THC ReviewsA Long Way to Go is a sweet, heartwarming historical romance in the same vein as Little House on the Prairie or Janette Oke's pioneer stories. I think fans of these books would probably enjoy this one as well. Being a long-time fan of both, I liked it quite a bit. It is also the ultimate “road trip” story with the bulk of it taking place as the main characters journey to Oregon via wagon train.

    5. Enjoyable read that needs more depthThis was a sweet story. I appreciated the author's research and could sense the sincerity of her Faith .I felt the plot was very predictable. Good read but that I cannot wait to read the next one did not reach out to grab me
