Review: This Road We Traveled
`This Road We Traveled` is a well researched historical fiction novel, written by author Jane Kirkpatrick. Jane Kirkpatrick is known for her lively presentations and well-researched stories that encourage and inspire readers. You can read more about her at www.jkbooks.com
This is a wonderful novel that includes a list of the characters and a map of the Oregon and California trails at the beginning of the novel, and an in-depth interview at the back. There are also discussion questions which make this novel a great selection for book clubs.
The characters are very realistic and the plot convincing. The reader joins Tabby and her family as they move out West. This is the second book I have read by this author and this is my favorite one, so far.
I recommend this novel to fans of historical fiction.
