I enjoyed both books 1& 2. They outline the role of women in settling the west and the hardships they suffered. God's redeeming grace is very evident and if you look closely you can see yourself at various times of your life. A good read.
This is the second book in the series about the wagon trains going west. It also has a good lesson that God forgives you no matterwhat your past was like and will provide theanswers to your prayers if it is within His will.
Distant Heart is the sequel to Defiant Heart Tracey Bateman has gotten together a good series that parallels to other great authors such as Tamera Alexander and even touches on the artistic ability of Francine Rivers's book Redeeming Love.Here, we take on the continued adventure from Defiant Heart but from the perspective of the ex-prostitute Toni and her journey to the Oregon territory. If the trip is not difficult enough without other events thrown in here and there... Try Indian Attacks and kidnappings, adultery and murder, and a new strange girl Ginger into their midst. Will the Cheyenne get there way and get Toni for their keeping? Who is Ginger and what does she want? Will the children and sister from the other wagon train be rescued? Will Amanda Kane ever heal? God is incredible and though he sometimes works slowly, if you look back and see what he is capable of you will be shocked an amazed...These books are fast reads, at least for me, but they are strongly recommended good reads.
