My girls and I read this together, and really liked the main character and her story. It covered a part of history I didn’t know well, and helped me understand better.

I read this aloud to my nine-year-old daughter. We both looked forward to reading a chapter together each night before bed. The story was interesting, even action packed in parts, and always lined with good, wholesome, moral characters helping each other out to reach the “Promised Land.”

I loved this book about family working together to achieve a common goal. Faith, love, perseverance, challenges are other themes. We love the books from the Good and the Beautiful library because we know they will be wholesome with a high literary value.


Exciting for all ages!

I loved this book and my daughters (7 & 9) were hooked with uplifting themes and good feelings from start to finish. The book is well written and left us excited for the next chapter for the next adventure. It made it feel like we were right there with the family through their trials and accomplishments.


Great read!

*I* couldn’t put this book down! This is filled with adventure, mystery, a bit of sadness/worry for the characters and keeps you wanting more.
I am thoroughly impressed with the writing and was a bit sad when the last came too quickly.
Definitely recommend adding this to your home library!
