2nd Oregon Trail book I've read by this author this month. This one is based on the life of Letitia Carson who was a freed slave who married and travelled the trail with an Irish immigrant. Good historical fiction of a strong woman who survived prejudice, tragedy and the hardships of pioneer life. Only 3 stars because although the author comes up with great story ideas, her writing style seems to keep me at a distance. I'm not pulled into the emotions and feelings of the characters. However, I still enjoy reading about these real people in history in a story that's more entertaining than a biography.
