“Prairie Song” by Mona Hodgson

Prairie Song, written by Mona Hodgson, is Book 1 of the Heart Seeking Home Series. It is the story of the Boone’s Lick Company Wagon Train, which left from St. Charles, Missouri, to travel west with new settlers shortly after the Civil War.

In particular, it is the story of Anna Goben, her mother and grandfather; and of Caroline Milburn, a young widow whose husband died in the war. Anna’s mother is an alcoholic and Anna thinks it would be good for her to have new adventures. Her father left when she was small and her brother was killed in the Civil War. Alcohol is her mother’s way of coping.

Caroline Milburn has been living with her sister, her husband and children. Space is too tight for that many family members and her brother-in-law came back from the war an invalid with a mean outlook on life. Caroline is going west to change her life and find a way to support herself.

This is a very interesting outlook on life after the war. So many families and individuals decided to head west to the open lands to try to make a new live for themselves and their families. The adventures start as soon as the wagon train pulls out of St. Charles.

I know you will enjoy this book. It is a book of faith and perseverance, which will make you think about the good in your life as you read about the hardships of theirs.
