A Light in the Wilderness by Jane Kirkpatrick ~ Review

A Light in the WildernessLucie's Review:

Based on a true story, this book tells Letitia Carson's remarkable tale.
This book follows Letitia from her time in Missouri, across the Oregon Trail, and through several year building a homestead in Oregon territory. Interweaving fact and fiction in a way that shows Letitia's strength and embodiment of the pioneer spirit.

It also follows the story of Nancy Hawking and her friendship with Letitia, and how it endured despite the years of separation.

Davey Carson, was Letitia's husband. He was a very interesting character to me, because wasn't the perfect book hero, he was realistic and had his flaws. While he did marry Letitia and treat her fairly as his wife, he did have a sort of restless spirit and had the itch to move around a lot.

Letitia was my favorite, her faith and courage shone brightly through all the hardships that she faced. She befriended many of the local Indians and they taught her how to live off of the land.

Overall, this is a wonderful novel about a strong, realistic, and inspiring woman. A great novel based on the life of Letitia Carson.
