Glad I have Book Three of this great series. This is a wonderful book. This is based on a true story. This focuses more on her faith and on working for the Hudson Bay company and as a free agent. Highly recommended! Make sure you read Book One in the series. This book and series deserves an A++++++++

Even though I am only 12, I enjoyed this book. I can't wait to finish the third book in this series, Hold Tight the Thread. I got all three books at the same time. My family used to live in Oregon and my mom met Jane and her husband, Jerry. My mom got to talk with them (mostly Jerry) and got the books signed by Jane. This book is about a mother who struggles to keep her family together. When she was just a girl, her mother and sister died. Then she married Pierre Dorion, who beats her when he's drunk. She has two boys with him. They head overland to Astoria and Marie has a baby girl, who dies. Then Pierre dies. Then she marries Louis Venier. She has a daughter with him. Then Louis dies. Her son, Paul, runs away. Her son Baptiste gets a girl, Older Sister, pregnant. They marry. Older Sister has the baby, Little Marie, but dies after the baby is born. Then Marie marries Jean Toupin. They have a son and daughter together. Then Baptiste marries Older Sister's younger sister, Josette. They have several children. Then Little Marie dies. This is the second book in this series. Read book 1 first. Then to find out how Marie's stry ends, read book 3.
