A New Home I have never read a book written by Melody Carlson that I didn t love I so enjoyed all three books of this series The gifted author has the ability to draw readers into her stories and I felt so much as though I was right there with the characters as they forged out a new life in Oregon I gladly gave five Stars for this entertaining story.I shall really miss the characters that I have grown to love while reading all three of the books The first two books covered the traveling from Kentucky to the Oregon trail and on to where the group planned to settle Then in book three the settlers built their homes and businesses Covering the first two and a half years of their new life All readers who enjoy Historical fiction and historical romance will love this series It s Christian fiction at its best The author has done her researching well about traveling by covered wagons in the mid eighteen hundreds Also about frontier settlements and how people lived in that time period.I bought a Kindle ebook copy of this book fromA positive review was not requested All opinions shared here are my own. This book is a hopeful tale of a modern minded heroine living long before her time I really enjoyed the end of Elizabeth s story In some ways I did feel a bit late to the party since I haven t read the first two books, but Melody Carlson does a pretty good job of catching the reader up without taking us aside and providing a summary Instead she weaves it back into the story into a way that feels really natural I appreciated that and I appreciated a nice story I could immerse myself in.I love to read pioneer stories because they do a great deal to remind me of how cushy and convenient my life is in comparison to our American ancestors To read about Elizabeth and her friends being excited over real windows and ovens makes you think of how many windows your own house is, and how many luxuries you enjoy that is above and beyond what is strictly necessary.I really liked getting to know these characters, and I even really appreciated some of the conflicts that the characters faced like Miranda and Elizabeth quarreling over wedding dates One of the reasons I so enjoy reading Christian fiction is because I feel like we often get subtle life lessons that can be both relative and instructive How does one stay in peace when someone challenges them How does one stand their ground without being insulting or combative I like seeing those examples played out because it encourages me to do better with my own trials of life I don t think there can ever be too much positive reinforcement when it comes to Christian behavior, so while in regular fiction I typically groan and dread when characters quarrel because it usually ends in overreaction and extended periods of anger, like this book, it shows how friends can have their differences and end in kindness without hyperbole.I appreciated Elizabeth s unbelievable kindness to both African American and Native American friends in this time period While other authors typically shy away or even villainize Indians I applaud Carlson for incorporating them and doing a good job to construct opposition and tolerance by her characters I know there s muchstory to be had here with the people of Riverside and wouldn t be at all surprised to see this story continued in some fashion.This was a really good read and it definitely makes me want to pick up the first two books in the series Thanks as always, for letting me read, I loved it Melody Carlson in her new book, A Home At Trail s End Book Three in the Homeward on the Oregon Trail series published by Harvest House Publishers concludes the journey of Elizabeth Martin.From the back cover The end of a journey the beginning of a new lifeAfter overcoming the challenges of the Oregon Trail, Eli Kincaid, the handsome scout for the wagon train, has realized that
