StunningI absolutely adored this book. The detail's put me right there. The storyline is great. Look forward to more by the author.
If you like historical time-travel stories this is a good one. Interesting ,engaging and entertaining. A unique, well written and very enjoyable story that completely pulls you into the 19th century and what life was like for the time period. A self centered, bratty 16 year old is transported back in time to the year 1848. She finds herself inhabiting the body of another teenager Libby Quarles, who's family is part of a wagon train heading to Oregon. Her looks are changed but her mind and person [...]
This is not as thoroughly researched or detailed as Outlander, But it's a very engaging story with highly compelling characters. Like Outlander, this is more historical fiction than fantasy, but I've categorized it as fantasy due to the "timeslip" element of the story. This "timeslip" is never really explained in the story. Patricia Santomasso performs well, giving distinctive and age-appropriate voices to the characters. I would have appreciated more closure at the end of the story, but overall [...]
The Far Journey: A Timeslip Novel of Survival on the Oregon Trail: Tom ReppertA self absorbed sixteen year old girl finds herself flung back in history, 1880's Oregon Trail traveling from the East to West . A wonderful tale with time travel, historical fiction, romance, hardships, Indian attacks, buffalo stampede, illness, injury and many other emotional events. I was drawn into the journey and felt many of the things Paula felt. I hope to find more by this author in the same genre.The narration [...]
I enjoy time travel, western, history, young adult novels, and any story that causes me to live with the characters. Wow, I am convinced that I would not have been able to do half what these characters did. Even though this is a novel, I feel it represented some of the hardships most pioneers faced traveling from east to west. I love the twist with the man without a nose and the story has me thinking about how I would feel if I ended up like the main character. I bought this novel through the Ki [...]
Couldn't Put DownOk, I'm a time travel sucker, reading pretty much anything I can on the subject. This one was a real page turner. I appreciate an earlier reviewer's comment that it starts off pretty juvenile but gets better. Had I not known that, I might have dismissed it. Don't! Lots of good history, struggle, twists. Kudos to the author! Definitely a good read!
A little predictable, and I had a hard time dealing with the negativity and angst of the main character. The end of the novel was bogged down by unnecessary follow up on all the characters.
