Professional reviews

"Rebecca Gallagher narrates Brunstetter's wagon train adventure with straightforward simplicity. In 1850, Cynthia heads to California with her mother, her fiancŽ, Walter, and two other families. When snow leaves them stranded in the Sierra Nevadas, they focus on faith and on creating a memorable Christmas for the party's children. Gallagher paces her words carefully. She uses a sweet voice for Cynthia; a wavering, older voice for her mother; and unique voices for the other expedition members. Walter sounds appropriately self-centered. Would either of the two other men on the journey--one a gold prospector, the other a widowed father--be a better match for Cynthia? Gallagher deftly balances details of the journey and the personalities of the wagon train caravan. Her narration captures the hopeful spirit of Brunstetter's beloved stories.
