Grace, along with her two younger sisters, open the story with the death of Grace’s husband-by-convenience. They are delivered to the Whitman mission in this westward expansion story. Grace has the gift of healing and provides invaluable help to those in her wagon train, along with others at the mission. Thwarted by Mr. Whitman, Grace does what she can to help the settlers, residents and some of the tribal people. Helped by Alex Armistead, a trapper, Grace finds a new life for herself and her sisters.
Their ultimate goal is Oregon to find her uncle who can provide for and vouch for the sisters.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
