Just wanted to share my excitement in a quick post here. The current BYU Magazine has a little blurb about my book. It says:
The Journey Takers is family history at its best. Leslie Albrecht Huber (BA ’98) transforms a buried past into a living present by following her journeying ancestors as they left their homes in Germany, Sweden, and England to travel to Zion in the American West. Huber’s exhaustive research takes her to her family’s homelands and enables her to reconstitute the communities, daily life, and eras in which her ancestors lived. Following them on their various journeys, she examines the historical impact of their decisions to emigrate.
I'll post more later: my attention is needed to help my ten-year-old daughter create an eighteenth-century courtesy book for her social studies project. Due tomorrow, of course. Then, my attention is requested to read another chapter of Ramona the Brave because it is due back to the library in two days.
