1837 - 1855 America. . . provided opportunity, but also brought great trials and heartache.
Journey through birth, death and life with true events in the lives of three families who helped each other with laughter, love and devotion.
Emma and her family withstood tragedy with a strong, underlying faith in God to see them through. The 1837 Financial Panic in America was the motivator for the Smallwoods to pull up roots and travel west. The romances and marriages, the trials and tribulations of these real people bring laughter, tears and a heart-warming experience.

I love a good story to go with my history and this was a most enjoyable story. I felt like this could have been my family from it's earliest beginnings. Sue White tells the story of "family". She builds a story around the travels, the dangers, passions, births, and sadly, the deaths...did I mention the dangers! It is an adventure and I can't wait for the next story....I want more.
