“I loved this story, as I did the second book, and I can only hope the author does not intend to end Nellie’s journey with their arrival in Salt Lake City. A fantastic read that I can highly recommend and one of the best I’ve had in a long time. ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Grant Leishman (5 STARS)
