Christian Histrical Fiction Book Review: A Home in Drayton Valley

Publisher's Description

"Fed up with the poor quality of life in 1880 New York, Tarsie Raines encourages her friends Joss and Mary Brubacher to move with their two children to Drayton Valley, Kansas, a booming town hailed in the guidebook as the land of opportunity. She offers to help with expenses and to care for Mary and the children as they travel west by wagon train. But when tragedy strikes on the trip across the prairie, Tarsie is thrown into an arrangement with Joss that leaves both of them questioning God and their dreams for the future. As their funds dwindle and nothing goes as planned, will Tarsie and Joss give up and go their separate ways, or will God use their time in Drayton Valley to turn their hearts toward him?"

My Book Review

All good stories include flawed characters who struggle toward redemption. They grow and change for the better and the reader goes on that journey with them. In A Home in Drayton Valley, the reader has the opportunity to journey with well-developed characters in a rustic Kansas setting as they hope, dream, fail, persevere, and eventually succeed in ways they never thought possible. A Home in Drayton Valley is a stand-alone novel in the Heart of the Prairie series, and it does not disappoint. The author, Kim Vogel Sawyer, has crafted a relatable, gentle story that all fans of Christian historical fiction are sure to enjoy.
