I did not honestly know what to expect when I purchased this book. A story that includes the Mountain Meadow Massacre where a wagon train carrying 137 people were murdered by the LDS September 1857 in Utah as they were trying to pass through the State on the way to California. A tragic time in American history. I have been doing a bit of research as I go long reading; Diane did her research before she picked up the pen.
If you love history based writing, get this book you will not regret it and the price can't get any better, even at regular price!
I gave this book 5 stars, and if I could, I would give it even more! This lady, Diane Noble, really knows her history. She wrote a book that caught my interest, and held me captive to the very last page! I cannot recommend this book enough. I promise it will not dissapoint.
I was hooked from the first page and couldn't stop thinking about the book when I had to put it down. I had an empty page in my mental history book when it came to the Mountain Meadows Massacre. And Diane did an excellent, balanced account based on historical accounts. A story worth being told and a worthy tribute to the victims of that awful day. And also a stark reminder of the frailty of human nature when given over to its' sinful ways. Many lessons to be learned. An excellent read.
