Jane Kirkpatrick has a gift for writing books in this time period and about difficult subjects. Eliza is the daughter of American Indian missionaries. When she was 10 she was taken hostage by the Cayuse which took place over 39 days before the ransom was paid. This book is about her life after this time and as she marries and has children.
The story was so touching as it includes excerpts from her mother's diary and her memories, which did not always mesh.
I loved this touching book. Thank you.
I was given this book by Revell Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
