this whole series is great books about pioneer life Kentucky Why, God, Do We Have To Move To Kentucky The Cry For Freedom Is Spreading Throughout The Colonies Calling Many People To War, But Not Sarah S Family The Cry They Hear Leads Them To A New, Untamed Wilderness Called Kentucky Kentucky Doesn T Feel Much Like Freedom To Sarah, However She Can T Understand Why God Didn T Answer Her Prayers To Stay In Virginia, But She Vows She Ll Return Some Day These were some of my favorite books growing up They became my ideal books Adventurous, faith building, historical, not a lot of romance, with a strong but feminine main character. I honestly do not remember this series very well, only that I really liked it as a girl and learned a lot about New England during Colonial America This is going on my re read list Eleven year old Sarah Moore was devastated when her father decided the family would move to the Kentucky frontier at the start of the American Revolution She doesn t want to leave Virginia, where her friends and the only home she has ever known are, and she worries about her oldest brother, who has left home to join the Patriot army She prays and prays to stay in Virginia but her prayers go unanswered The journey through the wilderness to Kentucky is dangerous as the family struggles through forests, across rivers, and over mountains Reaching Kentucky, the Moores must struggle to build a home in the untamed wilderness Sarah is desperately lonely and longs for her home in Virginia, vowing to return as soon as she can But as time goes by she begins to realize that home is not a place, but being with your family I really liked the setting of this book and the details of pioneer life on the early frontier I would recommend this book to young readers who enjoy stories about pioneer or colonial life The rest of the books in the series are enjoyable as well, and should be read in order. I loved these books growing up and I m glad they still hold up after all these years Sarah s frustrations are intensely relatable, so than other books I read at that age such as the Little House series or the lives of the saints The discussion of virtue and developing a personal relationship with Christ may seem a bit heavy handed at times, but for me at 9 years old it was what I needed, and coming back to it 17 years later I find I still need the reminder Some of the details and characters are a bit silly, but in general I thought the books were well written, engaging, and truly inspiring.
