Very interesting! If you are interested in history of the women in the 1800's. This is a must read. Also the two books that go with it. Try it, I'm sure you will want to read all three.

Strong women were the backbone of the homesteading days, and the author protrayed them well in the Trail of Thread series. Book 2 is set during the "Bleeding Kansas" era before the Civil War. I liked that the author put a sketch of the old quilt patterns she talked about in the back of the book.

I really enjoyed this book. It is very educational, interesting and I am very interested in the subject matter. I wish it was a little longer.... . It tells of the Kennedy family moving from Ohio to the Kansas prairies and gives a lot of information about the trials that went on between those that wanted to keep slaves and those that wanted to free them. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the 1800's.
