A light in the wilderness
This was, by far, one of my favorite books I have read. It was such an insightful look into what life must have been like for the women of this time, especially women of such diverse cultural backgrounds.
My heart broke for Letitia and the struggles she faced constantly because of the color of her skin, but her inner strength and faith in the Lord was admirable and wonderful to read about! This story had me on edge so many times as all three women in this story faced such difficult obstacles. Letitia facing racism and injustice at the hands of others, Nancy facing her greatest fear/pain, and Betsy trying to pass on the knowledge of her ancestors before it was too late. Each had their own individual struggle that was so different, but each also found a so much in common between them that strong friendships were formed.
This is one of the books that will be retaining its place on my bookshelves for a long time to come! I imagine in the next while, it will get re-read many times!
