Dangers still exist in the new land. Weather adds to the issues of planting crops as late Michigan frosts kill seedlings. Food supplies grow scarce as it is still months away from the next harvest. The new families do their best to help, but many arrive hungry and in need of immediate shelter.
The natives continue to hold tight to their traditions. The primitive way of living takes a toll on those accustomed to finer things. Can shelters be erected fast enough with the minimal men available to help? And when unexpected tragedy strikes, will the determination be enough to continue or will it grow dim?
Crooked Paths Straight is the sequel to The Year the Stars Fell in The Newburg Chronicles series. Join Wehman on the adventure to tame the frontier—the wilderness of Shiawassee County.
Review of ‘The Year the Stars Fell’ - “What a neat historical fiction book. This book kept me reading. I was captivated. The characters were so real and definitely rose out of the pages to reach me and wrap me into their story. I highly recommend that you read this book. This is definitely a new author that I am going to be following and seeing what else she has available for me to read.” ~For Him and My Family Blog
