Description

Dubbed by Jane Smiley as a "quintessential American voice," Sandra Dallas has won over fans everywhere and become a frequent fixture on the New York Times best-seller list. Based on 19th-century history, True Sisters follows four women who pin their hopes for the future on a plan devised by Brigham Young to bring emigrants to Salt Lake City. Pushing two-wheeled handcarts loaded with all their life's belongings, the women set off on the 1,300-mile journey from Iowa City-and soon become fast friends even as perils mount around them.

Professional reviews

"This novel follows the harrowing journey of Mormon converts who are pushing handcarts 1,300 miles from Iowa City to the "Promised Land" of Salt Lake City. Dallas focuses on four women and their families' hardships to make the dry facts heartrendingly real. The sanctimonious arrogance of men who insisted on forcing the departure too late in the season with no apparent planning and too few supplies prepares the listener for the unhappy adventure that follows. With her steady, straightforward delivery, Christina Moore keeps the large cast straight for the listener. She moves smoothly from the voyage to the various backstories, but the listener is soon immersed in the abyss of despair these woefully unprepared "saints" walked into. N.E.M.
