Review of The Journey Takers

I started reading Leslie Albrecht Huber's book The Journey Takers last week. It's compelling reading. Leslie has created a story that allows her ancestors (the Journey Takers) to come alive.

Through her own experiences as she follows their footsteps, Leslie weaves a narrative which takes us to Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom and Utah. She creates fictional scenes of historical accuracy in which she describes her ancestors and their emotions.

It's an unusual and intriguing method of writing a family history and one I'm enjoying very much.
