Inspiration, enjoyable read

I enjoyed reading about the Mormon colonies in Mexico during the Mexican Revolution. I especially liked the "Facts" in the back for each chapter to know what part of this historical fiction was true. I was surprised by how many of the nail-biting stories were based on true stories. The faith promoting theme was nicely woven into the story as a subtle fact of life for a family living through extreme hardship.

Mattie is an amazing woman! I can't even imagine all that she endured. What strength she had! What determination! I so enjoyed learning more about the Mexican Revolution through the eyes of someone who was there.

I really LOVED the part that said:
"Life returned to normal, as normal as a life gets with a husband on the run in the middle of a war. And political unrest had heightened, hanging over Colonia Juarez like a guillotine, Still, meals had to be prepared, the wash done, butter churned, the mending, and of course, tolerating impertinent visitors."

I highly recommend this book :)
