Maps of Fate is the second book in the series of Threads West An American Saga
Written by Reid Lance Rosenthal
I really love history and have done the genelogy of my family, so when I got the offer to receive this book from Laura Kennedy the Publisher's assistant of www.threadswestseries I grabed the chance. I really enjoyed finding out about my family's backgrounds when on one side came from Germany before the Civil war and the other are from England.
I have not read the first book in this series but I enjoyed this one anyway. This book is set in 1855 and continues the lives of four generations. As the family goes west they incounter all types of problems, alone with the Indians at that time. The many threads of the people in the story shows the struggles of the settlers, the cowboys, the mountain men, the Native Americans and the slaves from about 1855-1875. The author really brings this story to life and it is a book that you don't want to lay down. As I read I wanted to get in there and help them out, that is the way the story will bring you into it. A very well written book and as this was the first one I have read by the author Reid Lance Rosenthal, I sure want to read more. Need to get the first one in the series "Threads West" to read and then read this one again.
