Have any of you read True Sisters? I can not remember for the life of me who it was that told me to read it. Was it you? It was on my "read this" list so I requested it from the library even though the reviews were not great. It's the story of immigrants from Scotland and England who came to America in the 1850's and walked (pushing handcarts) from Iowa to the valley of Great Salt Lake. It is fiction but based on actual events.
If it was you who recommended it, I thank you kindly. I had never heard one single thing about this migration of Mormons. I don't know how that's possible, but there you have it. My curiosity has been stirred up but good. I just went on-line to search for other material to read on the topic and found The Gathering of Zion: The Story of the Mormon Trail by Wallace Stegner. I bought it with 1 click for $1.76. It's by Wallace Stegner. You know it has to be good. If any of you have read other books about this subject - do tell!
