I finished this book 3 days ago now and I am still having withdrawal symptoms (and I am still getting a lump in my throat thinking about what happened in the story!) Lesley Pearse writes in a way that makes the characters come alive and the scenes so vivid that you really do feel like you are there with her. I agree with some of the other reviews that say you miss Matty when you finish this book - I certainly do, because you feel like she becomes your best friend! Lesley Pearse has done so much research that you learn so much about the pioneers and what the endured. An absolutly fantastic read - but make sure you have tissues near you! Thank you Lesley Pearse for being such a brilliant writer - don't ever stop writing!
