    A Beautiful and Heartbreaking account of the Willie Handcart Company

    Based on the true story of the Willie Handcart Company, Farland has beautifully captured the trials, fears and hope of these pioneers.

    He seamlessly pieces the thoughts and actions of the feisty Eliza Gadd, Captain James G. Willie and young Baline Mortensen into a compelling story that's difficult to release.

    Led by Captain James G. Willie, the company encounters countless tragedies that delays their trip across the plains, eventually resulting in numerous deaths from exposure and starvation.

    Indian wars rage as they march across the plains, carrying their sick and injured in handcarts built from scraps of wood. Companies ahead of them report nearly constant threat of the raids and the discovery of corpses along the trail does little to ease their fears.

    This heartbreaking account takes the reader to Eliza Gadd's side as she watches her family collapse around her and culminates as Baline Mortensen gives the ultimate sacrifice.

    In the Company of Angels is a story for all faiths and all people. It's a historical recollection of fact combined in a novel that makes the reader believe he's walking beside these brave pioneers.

    I strongly recommend it for everyone.
