I received a copy of A TRAIL OF CRUMBS by Susie Finkbeiner from Kregel in exchange for an honest review. This is the sequel to A CUP OF DUST.
I love to read, and I say I loved a book, but they don’t always stick with me. A CUP OF DUST, however, has stuck with me. Often I find myself thinking about the characters and the situations they went through. A CUP OF DUST is truly a beautiful, heart-wrenching book. I was worried that A TRAIL OF TEARS wouldn’t live up to its predecessor. At the same time, I couldn’t wait to read it!
It lived up to my expectations (although book 1 remains my favorite). A TRAIL OF TEARS returns the reader to the Spence family as they make an important move in their lives. The historical detail is brilliant and in-depth. You can tell the author put a lot of time into doing her research.
My grandmother lived through the depression, and often times I thought about her while reading. “Did she hear that news?” “Did she use that product?” “What did she think about…?”
I highly recommend this to lovers of historical fiction or anyone who wants to escape into an amazing read.
