A Trail of Crumbs

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.
